Folks, here we are watching the quarter finals match between Pakistan and West Indies played at Sher-e Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.
West Indies won the toss and chose to bat first.
But what a pitiful performance from the WI batsmen. They could just manage 112-10. A pitiful score.
When Pakistan came into bat, the openers Kamran Akmal (47) and Mohammed Hafeez (61) crushed the West Indies bowlers with deft stroke play that made their opposition look like rank amateurs
In the end end, Pakistan won by 10 wickets in less than 21 overs.
What a shame that the West Indies team, which once boasted of great batsmen like Vivian Richards, Clive Lloyd, Alvin Kallicharan, Derrick Murray and Brian Lara, fast bowlers like Andy Roberts and spinners like L.R.Gibbs, should now be reduced to the status of jokers.
