Windies implode as Pakistan win 1st T20 by 143 runs


KARACHI: Pakistan thrashed West Indies by 143 runs to record the second-biggest margin win in T20I history as the tourists collapsed in the first match of the three-T20I series at National Stadium on Sunday.

West Indies batting collapsed at 60 after a sure-footed 41 by debutant Hussain Talat and a late cameo by veteran Shoaib Malik powered Pakistan to a mammoth 203-5.

Mohammad Nawaz struck in the inning’s first over after getting hit for six off his very first ball, removing Chadwick Walton for 6 (4). Mohammad Amir, in the inning’s second over, had Andre Fletcher caught on duck, leaving West Indies at 8-2.

Two balls later, Amir removed skipper Jason Mohammed for duck.

Wicketkeeper Dinesh Ramdin was out after a five-ball duck, off the first ball by Hasan Ali.

Shadab Khan caught and bowled Powell 5 (10), as Windies staggered to 27-5 in the seventh over. Marlon Samuels showed some resistance with 18 runs, but he was dismissed by Mohammad Nawaz as the collapse continued.

Shoaib Malik ripped through the lower order, removing pacer Emrit 11 (20) and Williams 0 (1).

Man-of-the-Match Hussain Talat, who took three catches in the field, took the last wicket to wrap up the match for Pakistan
