Kingston – West Indies removed Pakistan’s openers cheaply in the first hour of play in the first Test in Jamaica before rain prompted an early lunch.

At the interval, the Pakistanis were 34 for two in their first innings after they were sent in to bat on the opening day of the match at Sabina Park with former captain Azhar Ali not out on three and current captain Babar Azam not out on 10.

Kemar Roach made the breakthrough for the Windies in the seventh over of the day, when he bowled Imran Butt for 11.

Roach’s new-ball partner Jayden Seales had Abid Ali caught behind for nine in the following over to sink Pakistan to 21 for two.

But rain about 40 minutes before the interval stalled the progress of both teams.

The Test is the first in a series of two in the Jamaica capital and marks the start of the new round of the ICC World Test Championship for the two teams.

Summarised scores:

Pakistan 34 for two (Imran Butt 11, Babar Azam 10 not out) vs West Indies.
