    Default Windies win toss and batting against Pakistan in 1

    ABU DHABI: The West Indies have decided to bat after winning the toss in the first One-day International against Pakistan being played today at the Sheikh Zayed stadium in Abu Dhabi. Pakistan are playing their first ODI in over four months, and have undergone some significant changes in the interim. They now have a new coach, Intikhab Alam, and are without the services of their experienced batsman Mohammad Yousuf, who has joined the controversial Indian Cricket League. Besides, Shoaib Akhtar has been ruled out of the first ODI due to a calf injury, much to the disappointment of those eager to see him in action. West Indies are fresh from the success of their Stanford Superstars team in the Twenty20 tournament held there recently. But their performance in ODI''s this year has been lacklustre. They beat Bermuda and Canada in the tri-series held in Canada in August, and won 2-0 against Sri Lanka in April, but were beaten comprehensively by South Africa in Jan-Feb, and by Australia in June-July, both 5-0 defeats.Teams:West Indies: Chris Gayle (captain), S Chattergoon, Xavier Marshall, Ramnaresh Sarwan, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Brendon Nash, Carlton Baugh (wk), Jerome Taylor, NO Miller, Darren Powell, Lionel BakerPakistan: Salman Butt, Khurram Manzoor, Younis Khan, Misbah-ul-haq, Shoaib Malik (captain), Shahid Afridi, Kamran Akmal (wk), Fawad Alam, Sohail Tanvir, Abdur Rauf, Umar Gul Lionel Baker makes his debut for West Indies.

    Default Pakistan set tough target of 295 runs by WI

    ABU DHABI: Pakistan have to achieve a difficult target of 295 runs to win the first One-day International against the West Indies here at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium on Wednesday.Winning the toss, the West Indies opted batting on an easy wicket and piled up a huge score of 294 runs for the loss of nine wickets with the help of a brilliant century by their captain Chris Gayle.Gayle, who opened the innings with Sewnarine Chattergoon, hit 113 runs off 106 balls with 11 fours and five sixes. Both openers made 125 runs for the opening stand.

    Default Manzoor fifty keeps Pakistan afloat

    ABU DHABI: Where Chris Gayle biffed Pakistan''s pace attack to all corners of the Sheikh Zayed Stadium during the first half of West Indies'' innings, Pakistan struggled to find that fluency under lights. The loss of only one wicket was in their favour, however, and by the half-way mark of their chase they had reached 118 for 1, with the required run rate 7.08. Khurram Manzoor was batting on his second fifty in as many games, while veteran Younis Khan had just started to open up. West Indies'' new-ball pair of Daren Powell and Jerome Taylor began accurately. Both hit a short-of-a-length area at pace and squeezed runs dry. The first boundary came in the fifth over when Powell allowed Manzoor room to cut, and in that over Powell twice drifted down the pads to allow Manzoor more runs and Pakistan just a little impetus. The running was sketchy - basically it was miscommunication - and Salman Butt struggled for timing. Tied down by some good bowling, Butt repeatedly backed away from his stumps but rarely found the middle of the bat. A sweetly-timed drive through cover in the tenth over didn''t settle his nerves and he should have been out on 15, but some poor calling from two fielders at midwicket allowed Butt a life. Butt was put out of his misery on 24 from 53 balls by Lionel Baker, on debut, when an inside-edge crashed onto his stumps. Manzoor had played himself in nicely by the 25-over mark and was batting on 55 from 73 balls, his second half-century in two ODIs played for Pakistan. Younis, Pakistan''s most experienced batsman after Mohammad Yousuf deflected to the ICL, kept himself busy with singles, which also kept the partnership growing. Consecutive boundaries in the 23rd over - one driven off the back foot, the other lapped very fine - were vintage Younis.

    Default Pakistan crush Indies by 4 wickets

    ABU DHABI: In a nerve breaking first ODI between Pakistan and West Indies, Pakistan slashed West Indies by four wickets with a ball to spare here on Wednesday. Pakistan needing 16 runs in the last over was thankful to the two massive sixes by Kamran Akmal of the bowler Taylor guided Pakistan to the stunning victory stand. Skipper Shoaib Malik struck a handy and quick knock 66 of 51 balls rose rays of hopes for Pakis however, Indies tightened grip over the match after two consecutive wickets of Afridi and Malik: both were caught by veteran Chanderpaul. Those who say 50-overs cricket has lost its ticker needed to look no further than the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi for a humdinger. In a throwback to the days of Sharjah classics, Pakistan overcame a sluggish start and a middle-order wobble to sneak the most thrilling of last-over wins over West Indies. Khurram Manzoor and Younis Khan helped Pakistan overcome a jittery start and gather some steam, but it was Shoaib Malik''s whirlwind 66 and a stunning last-over assault from Kamran Akmal that pulled the carpet from beneath West Indies'' feet. After winning the toss and batting, West Indies settled for an under-par 294 which owed plenty to Chris Gayle''s glorious 113, his 17th one-day hundred and second on the trot after an unbeaten 110 against Canada in August. Just 96 runs were scored since Gayle departed in the 35th over, and only 71 in the last ten overs, credit to Pakistan for sticking to their guns on a hard pitch. Ultimately, that made a big difference. The last 15 minutes of the match were nerve-wracking. Akmal amazingly swept the last ball of the 48th off, by Jerome Taylor, for six, but a miserly penultimate over from Gayle seemed to have sealed it West Indies'' way. Fawad Alam failed to put away a full toss; Gayle bowled Akmal with a no-ball; Akmal then survived a stumping appeal; the over only cost six runs. Needing 17 from the last over, Akmal slashed the third and fourth deliveries for six, backing away, to cue hysteria in the ground. A scampered two became three with an overthrow, and Alam clipped the fifth delivery of the final over for a single to seal victory. Akmal''s 24 from nine ball, however, was the clincher. When Pakistan struggled initially under lights in the first 15 overs, this was hard to envision. In the absence of any fluency from Salman Butt, it was left to Khurram Manzoor to keep the score ticking over. Manzoor played himself, reaching his second half-century in two ODIs played for Pakistan, one full of punchy back-foot play. Younis Khan, Pakistan''s most experienced batsman after Mohammad Yousuf deflected to the ICL, hit consecutive boundaries in the 23rd over - one driven off the back foot, the other lapped very fine -to up the rate. Taylor was brought back in the 28th over to do a job, and he succeeded. Taylor dropped short, Manzoor tried to run it fine, and Carlton Baugh held on to the thin outside edge (142 for 2). Younis swept his way to fifty from 50 balls, but the pressure told on Misbah-ul-Haq, way too early into a reverse-sweep against Nikita Miller''s left-arm spin. Per the new rules, the batting side can choose one Powerplay and Pakistan left the third one until the 38th over. It was a critical phase and Pakistan lost two wickets for 38. Unable to pierce the field like Malik, Younis slogged Baker into the starry night while Shahid Afridi pulled Baker to a tumbling Shivnarine Chanderpaul at deep midwicket. Malik made sure to hit the ball as straight as possible and crossed fifty from 36 balls, but when Pakistan needed 33 from 18 balls, he pulled Taylor to midwicket. Akmal would not succumb so easily. The venue changed from Antigua to Abu Dhabi, the format from Twenty20 to 50-overs, but what did Gayle care? After five overs West Indies were 11 for 0; that''s when Gayle moved up a gear, stepping outside the line of a delivery from Abdur Rauf and swinging it over midwicket for six. Rauf, who opened the attack in the absence of an injured Shoaib Akhtar, was then taken for 17 in one over. A whip over mid-on was followed by a flick off the pads. Then Rauf pitched outside off stump and craned his neck as Gayle biffed him over his head. Shoaib Malik removed third man and Gayle smartly steered the ball past the wicketkeeper. Having hit a 33-ball half-century in the Stanford 20/20 for 20 earlier this month, Gayle enjoyed his first trip to Abu Dhabi. Sohail Tanvir was cracked past point and West Indies'' fifty was up in the tenth over with consecutive pulled sixes in Umar Gul''s first over. In five overs, 48 had been scored, and Gayle''s half-century needed 36 balls. Sewnarine Chattergoon contributed 33 to an opening stand of 125, the sixth-best for West Indies against Pakistan, content to play second fiddle before an attempted heave against the turn went to mid-on. Ramnaresh Sarwan partnered Gayle past his century - in a 73-run stand - and watched him get out for 113 after a series of attacking shots, the last of which went straight to midwicket (198 for 2) in an over in which he had been dropped by Gul. Sarwan used his wrists well and leapt on to anything short, hitting five boundaries before he tickled Afridi down the pads in the 38th over. Just 96 runs were scored since Gayle departed in the 35th over, and 71 in the last ten overs, credit to Pakistan for sticking to their guns on a hard pitch. Gul came back well to take 3 for 66 and Tanvir took two in two balls during the last over. A cricket-starved Pakistan came to Abu Dhabi wanting to win. They''ve certainly started well.
