Russell leads rout of sloppy Pakistan
Sports Page — Two most frustrating teams of these times matched each other mistake for mistake until West Indies took the decisive advantage in the last 14 overs of their innings and the first four of the defence. Having stumbled to 167 for 3 in 36 – with one batsman retired and possibly out of the tournament – they took 143 in the remaining overs thanks to urgency shown by Denesh Ramdin, Lendl Simmons and Andre Russell. Ramdin and Simmons scored fifties at a little over run a ball, and Russell threatened the record for fastest ODI fifty with an unbeaten 42 off 13. The contest was killed pretty early in the second innings with the Pakistan batting disintegrating to 1 for 4, the worst four-wicket score in ODI history.
Summarized scores: West Indies 310 for 6 (Ramdin 51, Simmons 50, Russell 42) beat Pakistan 160 (Akmal 59, Maqsood 50, Taylor 3-15, Russell 3-33) by 150 runs
