Pakistan destroys West Indies by nine wickets in opening match of the series

Pakistan finished their tour of England on a high note by thrashing England this month and carried on where they left off in a one-sided encounter in Dubai on Friday.
All-rounder Imad Wasim was the star of the show as he became the first Pakistan spinner to claim a five-wicket haul in a Twenty20 International.

Imad took 5-14 – the eighth-best figures in a T20 International – in a magnificent spell as the Windies were bowled out for only 115 in their first competitive game since the departure of head coach Phil Simmons.

The tourists slumped to 48-8 before Dwayne Bravo (55 from 54 balls) ensured they were not totally humiliated, but Babar Azam (55 not out off 37) made his maiden T20 half-century for Pakistan as they got home with 34 balls to spare in the first game of a three-match series.
