Pakistan Cricket team chased down a target of 306 in in first Multan ODI, the skipper shared a 103-run partnership with Imam-ul-Haq (65) and a 108-run stand with Mohammad Rizwan (59) to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. In one-day internationals, it was Pakistan’s most successful run chase against the West Indies.
After his 103 helped Pakistan draw first blood against the West Indies in the Multan series on Wednesday, Babar Azam became the first batter to score three straight hundreds in one-day internationals on two separate occasions.

Windies set a difficult 306 target against Men in Green in Multan, with Shai Hope of the visiting team slamming a century. The West Indies got off to a bad start after deciding to bat first, as young bowler Shaheen Afridi struck in the third over to give the hosts their first breakthrough, and Kyle Mayers was out early.
Despite an early setback, the visitors managed to keep the scoreboard going. In the middle, Hope and Shamarh Brooks were subjected to a Pakistani spin attack. The pair put on a 154-run second-wicket stand to get their team back into the contest.
