Pakistan, bowled out for only 140 runs, shocked everyone with their win over the West Indies in the one-day match.

The Benson and Hedges World Series Cup match appeared a mere formality for the West Indies as they set out after a run-rate of less than three an over. But they managed only a 131 total.

But two quick wickets by Sarfraz Nawaz, the stiff backed medium-paceman and an amazing spell of bowling by leg-spinner Wasim Raja turned the Calypso jaunt into a Calypso collapse.

Raja claimed Jeff Dujon (0), "dangerman" Faoud Bacchus (37). David Murray (0) and Malcolm Marshall (20) to finish with 4-25 (off seven overs), as the West Indies collapsed. for 132 runs In 37.5 overs.

Javed Miandad, the Pakistan captain, confessed he had gambled bringing Raja into the attack as the sixth bowler. Miandad admitted his team — at one stage 35-5 — had been looking at a total of no more than 60 or 80 runs.

But an eighth wicket stand of 57 in 46 minutes. between Zaheer Abbas (who top scored with 46) and Sarfraz, who made an unbeaten 34, enabled the team to reach the modest, but reasonably respectable. total of 140.

The West Indans, who went into the game with only five recognised batsmen, showed themselves to be as vulnerable as the next side in the chase after a meagre target.

Wasim Raja named Player of the match for his record-breaking spin bowling performance to claimed a career-best 4-wickets for 25-runs in 7-overs.
