Windies beat Pakistan
GROS-ISLET, St. Lucia – Devendra Bishoo bowled memorably on his debut to follow-up a purposeful 65 from Lendl Simmons, and propel West Indies to seven-run victory in their first-ever Twenty20 International against Pakistan today.
The leg-spinner continued the impressive start to his international career with four wickets for 17 runs from four overs to earn the Man-of-the-Match award, as Pakistan, chasing 151 for victory, were restricted to 143 for nine in their 20 overs at the Beausejour Cricket Ground.
Ravi Rampaul supported with three for 31 from his allotted four overs.
The victory was a morale-boosting win for Darren Sammy’s side, after the build-up to the match was overshadowed by the public confrontation between former West Indies captain Chris Gayle and the West Indies Cricket Board. (CMC)
