Commentary

Well, not an epic match but a great start for West Indies and a somehow predictable below-par performance from Pakistan. Check out Will Luke's bulletin for a full report.

We're back on Wednesday with two matches - Australia v Scotland, which in all honesty is unlikely to be an epic, and Kenya v Canada which could be a close contest between two of the leading Associates. Join us for full coverage at 9.30am (1330 GMT, 1900 IST). Until then, it's goodnight from Martin Williamson and Jenny Thompson.

Collymore to Shoaib Malik, OUT, Shoaib steps back and looks to send the ball into the harbour but gets under it and Chanderpaul coming in from long-off takes the steepler. He is mobbed by delighted fielders and unlike 2003, when West Indies proved to be party poopers, the hosts have won the opening match

And they are changing the ball. Another utterly pointless exercise given the match situation ...

Collymore to Shoaib Malik, no run, driven into the deep but Shoaib turns down the single. Not sure what the point is at this stage

Game set and almost match. Shoaib left stranded as the tail folds.

Bravo to Umar Gul, OUT, you won't see many better catches than that! A full toss driven firmly back to the left of Bravo who stuck out a hand and held the ball at full stretch no more than 18 inches above the ground in his follow through. A jubilant Bravo sprints into the deep pursued by team-mates ...

Bravo to Iftikhar Anjum, OUT, Iftikhar chips a full toss from a slower delivery to Lara at extra cover where he takes the catch high above his head

Bravo to Iftikhar Anjum, no run, athletic stop diving to his right by Bravo, changing direction in his follow through

Bravo to Iftikhar Anjum, 2 runs, slow by slower ball standards - 57mph which is shy of Monty Panesar speed - and driven backward of point
