SHARJAH: Pakistani batsman Babar Azam played a wonderful inning, scoring 120 for 131 balls in the first One-Day International against West Indies.

It took a superb catch to bring curtains to a magnificent innings from Azam. Azam, who took Pakistan’s score to an unbelievable 250 in 43 overs with a tremendous century, was caught by Kieron Pollard on Carlos Brathwaite ball.


Azam and Sarfraz have brought up their 50-run stand and Pakistan are setting themselves a good platform from where they can explode in the latter stages of the innings. With wickets in hand, Pakistan can aim for a score somewhere close to 300.

ODI captain Azhar Ali was bowled on the first ball of the match, making no score at all.
