West Indies thrash Pakistan by 150 runs
21 February 2015, Nirapad News: Jerome Taylor took three wickets in a destructive opening spell to have Pakistan reeling at four wickets down for one run, setting the West Indies on course for a lopsided 150-run win in their Cricket World Cup Pool B match on Saturday.
The West Indies posted 310-6 after being sent in to bat with Denesh Ramdin and Lendl Simmons scoring half centuries, then bowled out Pakistan for 160 in 39 overs to bounce back from a surprising four-wicket loss to Ireland in their opening match.
Pakistan has now lost two in a row, following its 76-run loss to arch-rival India, and the 1992 champions are now in danger of missing a quarterfinal spot.
Taylor finished with 3-15 as the principal destroyer of the Pakistan innings, while Andre Russell followed his unbeaten 42 from 13 balls with 3-33.
