Pakistan came out victorious against West Indies on Monday in the last session of day five to go 1-0 up in the three-match series at Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
A 56-run victory was ensured by Pakistan ODI captain Azhar Ali’s triple ton in the first innings and leggie Yasir Shah’s magical bowling against the visitors.
