This is how Pakistan won the match
Batting first, Pakistan had scored 113/2 by the 15th over thanks to Babar (51) and Mohammad Rizwan (46). However, Jason Holder (26/4) bowled brilliantly to restrict Pakistan to 157/8.
Chasing the score, West Indies lost the first wicket on the score of zero. Pooran scored an unbeaten 62 off 33 balls, but his team had to face defeat due to a lack of help from other batsmen.
Babar made these records by scoring a half-century
Pakistan captain Babar scored 51 runs in 40 balls which included four fours and two sixes. This was his 20th fifty in T20 Internationals. Babar has become the batsman to score 20 T20 International half-centuries in the shortest innings. Babar has done this feat in 56 innings. He has broken the record held by Indian captain Virat Kohli (62 innings). Babar (2,204) has become the ninth batsman to complete 2,000 runs in T20 Internationals.
Hafeez also made many great records
Mohammad Hafeez performed brilliantly with the ball and conceded only six runs in his four overs. He also took a wicket with a maiden over. The spell bowled by Hafeez has become the joint-most economical spell of four overs for Pakistan. Significantly, Hafeez has become the only cricketer to bowl three maiden overs and play three.
Pooran hit four fours and six sixes during his unbeaten half-century. He scored runs with a strike rate of 187.88. It was Pooran’s third fifty and his highest score in T20 Internationals.
