WEST?INDIES made heavy weather of a paltry target but held their nerve in the end to beat Pakistan by two wickets and make a winning start to their ICC Champions Trophy campaign in England yesterday.
Chasing 171 for victory at a sun-bathed Oval, West Indies almost snatched defeat from victory when they lost eight wickets, but Man Of The Match Kemar Roach (right), celebrating with Darren Bravo, sealed victory with a square-driven boundary in the 41st over.
Roach had earlier rocked Pakistan with the ball, capturing the first three wickets in a pacy and penetrative opening spell.
