Windies need 223 off 39 overs under Duckworth Lewis to win fourth ODI
Bridgetown, Barbados, CMC – West Indies will need to make 223 off 39 over to win the 4th Digicel One-Day International at Kensington Oval, on Monday afternoon.
Pakistan batted first an made 248-9 off their 50 overs but then a heavy shower, which threatened all day, came and the West Indies reply was reduced by 11 overs.
In the first half of the match, leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo again bowled impressively to lead a late West Indies fight-back, following a hundred from Mohammed Hafeez.
The 25-year-old Bishoo collected 3-37 runs from his allotted 10 overs, Dwayne Bravo captured 2-60 from his 10 overs, and Kemar Roach 2-67 from 10 overs.
Bishoo helped to transform the complexion of the match, after Hafeez struck seven fours and three sixes in 121 from 138 balls.
After an early breakthrough, West Indies were under pressure, as Hafeez, whose 100 came from 128 balls, and Asad Shafiq, with 71 from 102 balls that included four fours, added 153 for the second wicket.
Bishoo swung the match with the scalps of Misbah-ul-Haq in the 44th over, as well as Hafeez – both bowled – and Hammad Azam – caught at fine leg for one – in the 46th over.
West Indies, sharp in the field, tightened their grip, with the run outs of Mohammad Salman for a “duck” and Usman Salahuddin for five before Bravo bowled Tanvir Ahmed in the final over to make things difficult for the Pakistanis at the end.
