Imam-ul-Haq had worked his way to 65 – his fifth consecutive 50+ score in ODIs – when he went for the reverse sweep only to find the man at short third. It was a flatter one, with extra bounce on it and the batter ended up miscuing it as a result. West Indies have a little window now, although Babar Azam is looking in supreme touch at the other end. A wicket against the run of play should lift the spirits of the visitors, nonetheless. Pakistan are chasing 306 in the first ODI at the Multan Cricket Stadium after West Indies won the toss and opted to bat first.
