Fast bowler Waqar Younis continued his devastating form in one-day cricket internationals by capturing 5-52 as Pakistan beat the West Indies by six runs.

Younis, who had five-wicket hauls in Pakistan's previous two limited overs games at home to New Zealand recently, caused a collapse in which West Indies tumbled from 1-139 to 7-181.

The touring team finished on 7-205 after Pakistan, which won the toss, scored 5-211 in the first of its three one-day 40-over matches.

Younis did the damage after Desmond Haynes, leading the West Indies on the tour in the absence of Viv Richards, knocked up 67 and shared a second-wicket partnership of 138 with Richie Richardson (69).

Pakistan's other key performers were Imran Khan, who struck a rapid 53 not out on his return to the side after opting out of the New Zealand series, and Salim Malik, who made 58.

West Indies lost Carlisle Best to the fifth delivery of the innings from Imran, with the total at one, but were put on course for victory by Haynes, who made his runs off 92 balls with 11 fours, and Richardson, who faced 86 balls and hammered six fours and two sixes.

Man-of-the-match Younis tilted the balance when he changed ends, striking in his first over after the switch in having Richardson caught by substitute Ejaz Ahmed.

In the same over, the 30th, Younis bowled Gus Logie without scoring and the paceman continued the collapse by bowling Haynes to make the score 4-149.

Brian Lara, making his international debut, was trapped leg before by Younis for 11, while leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed had Jeff Dujon caught behind for three.

Younis completed his haul by having Carl Hooper lbw for 15 in the 38th over, leaving West Indies needing 31 from the last two overs to win.
Malcolm Marshall lifted their hopes when he hit 14 off Imran in the 39th over. But the task of scoring 17 off the final over from Younis was beyond the touring side.

Left-arm paceman Salim Jaffer, though he did not take a wicket, played an important containing role, conceding only 19 runs from his eight overs.

Pakistan, which slipped to 4-91, was revived by Imran and Malik in a 75-run partnership in 55 minutes for the fifth wicket.

Imran, captaining his country after Javed Miandad agreed to step down last week, struck his runs off 52 balls in his first international innings for eight months.
