Rehman impresses in second one-day against West Indies


West Indies cricket captain Brian Lara walks back to the pavilion after being dismissed during the second one-day international at the Iqbal Cricket Stadium in Faisalabad yesterday.


Rookie left-arm spinner Abdul Rehman grabbed two wickets for 22 runs yesterday as Pakistan bowled out the West Indies for 151 in the second limited-overs international.

Runako Morton top scored with a battling 43 off 66 balls, but the rest of the West Indies' top order failed to raise a strong total in the first-ever day-night game at the Iqbal Stadium.

Morton hit four boundaries and featured in the best partnership of the West Indies innings when he added 57 runs off 89 balls with Denesh Ramdin (23) for the seventh wicket. Morton departed in the 49th over, giving an easy catch to Younis Khan after he was deceived by Rana Naved's (2-32) slow delivery.

Pakistan players were sharp in the field and forced three run-outs, including dangerman Brian Lara's wicket for 14.

The West Indies soon ran into trouble as its openers departed without scoring after Pakistan captain Inzamam-ul-Haq won the toss and opted to field first.
