The T20 between Pakistan and West Indies was one sided with the former’s bowling attack being far from being salvaging for West Indies. In 20 overs, Pakistan bowled 66 dot balls. Means, West Indies batsmen could not score for more than half of the stretch. The prime attack was from Hassan Ali, who bowled overs with no runs one after another. The figure of 4-2-12-2 attained by the bowler came up as the match winning number.
On the other side, the only strikes from West Indies were from Chadwick Walton and Carlos Braithwaite. Walton scored 40 and Braithwaite had 37. The batsmen scaled West Indies’ score to 124 for 8. In the Chase, Pakistan racked up the runs with seven wickets to spare. Ahmed Shehzad scored 53 off 45 balls, hauling the team to the victory mark.
West Indies faced the slog when Hasan came up with his in-swinging deliveries. The ball as well as the pitch helped him lot. Before the 10th over Hasan bowled four overs, in three of which West Indies plummeted from 59 for 2 to 87 for 6. The break-through did not come immediately. In the first over, Indies batsmen put away his delivery for a six. In the next over, he denied boundaries and in the next, he finally made an inroad to wickets. Other noteworthy spells were from 18 years old Shadab Khan, who removed Walton and Jason Holder.
With the victory, Pakistan nicked the T20 series by 3-1. As West Indies was the World Champion in the last T20 Tournament, for Pakistan, the win is certainly a milestone. Earlier, Pakistan was successful to conduct PSL, the T20 franchise tournament. The next campaign between Pakistan and West Indies starts on April 7, in Guyana.
