West Indies cricketers, who suffered a big 126-run defeat to Pakistan in the first of five One-Day Internationals at Providence in Guyana yesterday, will have a full training session today ahead of the second match.

The second game will also take place at Providence in Guyana and the Caribbean side will be hoping for an immediate rebound.

West Indies, chasing 225 to win, were bowled out for 98 with nine overs remaining.

The total represents West Indies’ lowest One-Day International score against Pakistan and their worst against any team on home soil.

Marlon Samuels led the way for the West Indies with 25 and Darren Sammy scored an undefeated 21.

Shahid Afridi was declared as Man of the Match for his magnificent performance.

Afridi took seven wickets for just twelve runs, and scored 76 off 55 balls in Pakistan’s total of 224 for nine.

Pacer Jason Holder was the most successful bowler for West Indies on the day.

He wrecked Pakistan’s top-order batting in finishing with the outstanding figures of four for 13 off 10 overs.

Pakistan were struggling on 47 for five before recovering.
