Pakistan post 308 on board against West Indies

GEORGETOWN: Pakistan made 308-5 after being put in to bat by the West Indies in the first one-day international of a three-game series at the National Stadium in Guyana on Friday.

Mohammad Hafeez top-scored with 88, with three sixes and six boundaries, while Shoaib Malik hit 53. Ahmed Shehzad made 67 and fellow opener Kamran Akmal 47.

Slow bowler Ashley Nurse claimed 4-62 off his 10 overs.

West Indies are seeking a clean sweep of the series to move ahead of Pakistan at number eight in the international rankings.

By the cut-off date of September 30 this year, the top eight teams, including hosts England, will automatically qualify for the 2019 World Cup.



Leg-spinner Shadab Khan, who marked his first Pakistan appearances at senior level with two ‘Man of the Match’ performances and the ‘Man of the Series’ award in the tourists’ 3-1 T20 series triumph, is now set to make his ODI debut in a bowling line-up that shows the return of left-arm fast bowler Mohammad Aamir.
