Guyana, 14 July
Hugely contrasting half-centuries by Shahid Afridi and Misbah-ul-Haq rescued Pakistan from a perilous position as they reached 224 for nine against the West Indies in the first one-day international on Sunday.
Returning to the team after being omitted from the Champions Trophy in England in June, the mercurial Afridi smashed a top score of 76 off 55 deliveries. Giving him company was Misbah, who  redefined the role of the cautious captain, occupying 121 balls for his watchful innings of 52.
Brief Scores: Pakistan 224 for 9 (Afridi 76, Misbah 52, Holder 4-13)
