Scorecard

West Indies A lost four wickets for four runs and fell from a position of strength at 63 for 1 to crumble to 101 all out in their 71-run defeat at the hands of Pakistan A in Grenada.

Chasing 173, Andre Fletcher got West Indies off to a solid start with 30 off 39 balls and at 63 for 1, the home team appeared to have laid a strong platform. Then the collapse began with Kirk Edwards edging left-arm fast bowler Junaid Khan to be caught-behind. Wicketkeeper Sarfraz Ahmed was in the thick of the action as he went on to take the catches of Kieran Powell and Fletcher off Zulfiqar Babar and Khan respectively.

West Indies were reeling at 67 for 5 and never recovered from the collapse. Babar was the most successful Pakistan bowler with figures of 4 for 22.

Pakistan looked set for a competitive total after a 55-run partnership between Umar Amin and Aamer Sajjad had got them to 100 for 3. But, Devendra Bishoo, who helped Guyana reach the Champions League Twenty20 tournament, picked up 4 for 35 as Pakistan's middle-order failed to capitalise on the start.

West Indies captain David Bernard's decision to bowl first seemed justified after Rampaul - who picked up three wickets - and Bishoo,dismissed Pakistan inside 50 overs. But West Indies failed to get beyond the 32nd over in their own innings.

The two teams will play two four-day games in St. Vincent with the first one starting on November 18.
