Hussain Talat produced an inspiration performance on his debut and Shoaib Malik’s handy contribution was enough for Pakistan to register a thumping 143-run win over West Indies in the first T20I of the three-match series in Karachi on Sunday.

The victory was Pakistan’s largest in terms of runs in the shortest format of the game, whereas it is the second largest in the history of the format.

For the visitors, Keemo Paul, Rayad Emrit and Rovman Powell claimed a wicket each.

In reply, the Caribbean giants were bowled out for just 60 in the 14th overs.

    Who is responsible for the interruption when in the middle of the National Anthem of Pakistan sound stopped? This appeared to be a deliberate act. We know a Friend of Our Enemy is calling the shots. He and his daughter will have to tell the Nation.Recommend
