Left-arm spinner Mohammad Nawaz grabbed 4-42 backed up Babar Azam’s maiden one-day international century as Pakistan crushed the West Indies by 111 runs in the first of their three-match series on Friday.
Azam hit 120 in Pakistan’s strong total of 284-9 in 49 overs after a power failure interrupted the innings for 80 minutes.
West Indies’ target was revised to 287 on the Duckworth/Lewis method, and the batsmen succumbed to Nawaz’s spin to be bowled out for 175 in 38.4 overs. Marlon Samuels top-scored with 46.

Azam, who came in after captain Azhar Ali was caught behind off the first ball of the match, featured in two solid half-century stands with Sharjeel Khan (54) and Sarfraz Ahmed (35).
Kieron Pollard took an acrobatic catch on the boundary edge to end Azam’s knock in the 43rd over, and two overs later the players had to leave the field with Pakistan at 260-6.
