At Shere Bangla Cricket Stadium Mirpur, West Indies won the toss and elected to bat first.
West Indies’ start was not very impressive and the danger men Chris Gayle returned back to pavilion on the total of just 10 runs.
Last 5 overs, however, proved to be the turning point of the match and WI scored 82 runs in these five overs to increase the score to 166. Bravo and Sammy put up the carnage to take WI to such a defensible total.
Sohail Tanveer, Shahid Afridi, Hafeez and Zulfiqar Babar took one wicket each. Gul and Ajmal proved to be the most expensive bowlers and gave 29 runs in 2 overs and 41 runs in 4 overs respectively.
