A POWERFUL display by the West Indies enabled them to coast home by nine wickets against Pakistan in their opening match of the Champions Trophy tournament in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.

Imran Khan put the West Indies' in to bat but it was a decision which swiftly backfired when Gus Logie, the diminutive Trinadian batsman turned in a remarkable display of fielding.

He took three catches as well as running out two Pakistani batsmen, including the dangerous Javed Miandad when he and Rameez Raja were on the point of mounting a Pakistan recovery. It deservedly won him the £200 "Man of the Match" award.

Courtney Walsh, the Gloucestershire opening bowler, took four wickets and then Gordon Greenidge and Desmond Haynes with an opening stand of 126 saw the West Indies comfortably home.

Significantly, the tight West Indian attack conceded only six boundaries in the whole Pakistan innings, confirming the pre-tournament prediction that the West Indies would be the team to beat in this four nation round robin competition which carries total prize money of £60,000.
