Simmons leads WI to victory
PROVIDENCE, Guyana – Another fluent innings from Lendl Simmons followed tidy bowling – led by Ravi Rampaul – to hand West Indies a commanding 10-wicket victory over Pakistan in the final One-day International today.
Simmons struck seven fours and three sixes in a career-best, unbeaten 77 from 73 balls, and Kirk Edwards supported with 40 not out, as West Indies successfully chased 140 without losing a wicket, winning with 159 balls remaining at the Guyana National Stadium.
Simmons formalised the result, when he played a delivery from Ahmed Shehzad to point, and gained a second run from an overthrow.
The result meant Pakistan won the five-match series 3-2, after winning the first three ODIs handsomely before West Indies rebounded with a one-run victory under the Duckworth-Lewis Method in the rain-affected fourth ODI last Monday. (CMC)
