Match Notes

  • Picture tells a bleak story

    One image on the TV screen on Friday summed up the exasperation over events in Abu Dhabi even more expressively than all the choice expletives that repeatedly echoed across the Caribbean

  • Malik calls for consistency

    Pakistan captain Shoaib Malik has warned his players not to get carried away by the four-wicket win against West Indies in the first ODI in Abu Dhabi

  • Pakistan ride fightback to win series

    Unlike the manic fireworks of the first game, Friday was more of a slow-burning scrap. Pakistan were, once again, second-best at the halfway stage but survived a tight finish to win the match and seal the series

  • West Indies aim to bounce back

    West Indies are doubtless still reeling from their last-over defeat to Pakistan on Wednesday, but their captain, Chris Gayle, is adamant that his side will bounce back
