West Indies conceded a humiliating defeat to Pakistan in the first ODI played at Providence Stadium, Guyana on Sunday. The batting line-up of the team collapsed like nine pins, managing to score only 98 runs in their attempt to chase down Pakistan's 224. They will be keen to win on Tuesday.
Pakistan put up a solid show in the first ODI, beating West Indies by 126 runs. They managed to push their recent debacle behind with the win on Sunday and it will reduce pressure on them considerably.
West Indies have 67-53 win-loss, two tied record against Pakistan out of 121 matches played between the countries.
West Indies: Marlon Samuels (25) and Darren Sammy (21) were the highest scorers for the team in the first ODI, exposing the vulnerability of their batting line-up. Chris Gayle, Johnson Charles, Kieron Pollard, Marlon Samuels, Lendl Simmons and Devon Smith failed with their bats.
On the bowling front, Jason Holder took four wickets while Kemar Roach and Darren Bravo took two wickets apiece. They took early wickets and restricted the opponents to 224 runs but batting failure cost them the game.
Pakistan: Half centuries from Misbah-ul-Haq and Afridi helped the team put up a respectable total after losing early wickets. They will be expected to perform again in the second game and the top order should give a good start.
Afridi's overall performance was the key to Pakistan's win in the first ODI. Besides scoring a well-crafted 76 runs, he took seven wickets for 12 runs in his nine-over spell, which is his career best. Mohammad Irfan took two wickets.
Pakistan must be geared up after the first ODI thumping victory but West Indies are expected to bounce back. The Caribbeans are the favourites to win the second ODI.
