19:42 GMT: End of innings
End of the match: Pakistan won by 6 wickets
Man of the match: Shadab Khan
20:02 GMT: So, The visitors won their first encounter. Pakistan performed well and in the end they went over the finishing line. Batting first, West Indies looked listless throughout their innings, as they kept on losing wickets in the regular intervals and that is why they could not put a handsome total on the board and restricted to 111. Pakistan chased the modest target easily. It would be unfair if we do not talk about the debutant, an eighteen years old leg-break bowler Shadab Khan bowled exceptionally well, taking three crucial wickets just for 7 runs, he was declared the man of the match. This is all we have for you today, please join us on Thursday for the 2nd T20 of the 4-match series between these two teams at 16:30GMT. Till then, its goodbye from the commentary desk..!!
20:02 GMT: End of the session's play
