T20WC: Pakistan defeats West Indies by 7 wickets in first warmup match

Pakistan defeated West Indies by 7 wickets in the T20WC first warmup match on Monday.

Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman were impressive with the bat as they scored 50 and 46 runs, respectively.

Pakistani bowlers’ effort to pick up the timely wickets restricted West Indies to 130, who chose to bat after winning the toss.

West Indies’ Ravi Rampaul had sent Mohammad Rizwan packing early at 13, while Hayden Walsh had taken the wicket of Babar (50).

While Mohammad Hafeez left us disappointed as he was bold out for a duck.

Pakistani bowlers put up a strong show against the aggressive West Indian side.

The Windies, however, never looked comfortable batting first, losing wickets at regular intervals and only managing to finish their inning at 130/7 from their 20 overs.

Hassan Ali picked up two wickets (Fletcher and Pooran) while giving away only 21 runs from his four overs.

Right-arm pacer Haris Rauf gave away 32 runs from his four overs but managed to pick up the two prized wickets of Keiron Pollard and Chris Gayle.

While Shaheen Afridi managed to take two scalps as well but gave away an expensive 41 runs from his four overs.

Shaheen Afridi took the wickets of Shimron Hetmyer and Lendl Simmons.

Left-arm bowler Imad Wasim put in an impressive performance with the ball as well, giving away only six runs from his three overs at an economy rate of two runs per over.

He also managed to take the scalp of Roston Chase.
