As it turns out, Pakistan register a comfortable victory and take 1-0 lead in the three-match series. A triumphant return of International cricket to Karachi, much to the delight of the home fans. With the second T20I scheduled tomorrow, there will not be much time for the teams to rest. However, there will be a lot for Windies to think about and discuss. Time to conclude the proceedings for today. Do join us back tomorrow. Until then, it's a goodbye from us here. Goodnight and cya!

Sarfraz Ahmed, Pakistan captain: Fakhar Zaman started well for us, Shoaib and Talat finished off really well for us as well. We always try to give our best in every match. I think we are a strong team, and we never relax. We love to give our best in all departments of the game. Hopefully Shaheen Afridi will also get a chance later on in the series. The next game is really important, so we need to put everything into winning it, but if we can accommodate Shaheen, we will do our best to do so.

Jason Mohammed, Windies captain: I think it was a tough day. We gave away too many runs from the last two overs. Our batting was bad too. It looked like a good wicket, we didn't have any plans. We have to stay positive and wish to comeback strong. We will try and do our basics right for the next two matches. It's nice being here and it feels good.

Memento presented to the mayor of Karachi.

Hussain Talat, Man of the Match: Really happy. I would like to thank the people who helped me until here. Thought about this moment for very long, almost 2 years, and I just backed my own game; played the only way I know how. Worked on high-performance training, and batting in the recent past and the PSL helped me out a lot too. Glad to see it all work out today...

The chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board, Najam Sethi, has a few words to say on the occasion of the return of international cricket to Pakistan.

23:05 Local Time: A tame surrender from the Windies. The innings never got going. Chadwick Walton sparked off by striking a six off the first ball but then got carried away and Nawaz with his bagful of tricks removed him off the fourth ball. Things got much worse for Windies as a quintessential collapse followed and Pakistan bowlers rolled over their top-order leaving them reeling at 15/4. The visitors just couldn't recover from the scars and it was a mere formality for Pakistan from there in wiping off the innings. Just three batsmen into double figures sums up the sorry tale of Windies' batting. Presentations imminent, stick around.

Talat to Badree, out Caught by Shoaib Malik!! Talat is having a dream evening. And is that the end of the innings? Yup, they are shaking hands because Veerasammy Permaul won't come out to bat. This is the lowest score for Windies in T20Is. It was fitting that Talat finished things off. Banged in short, Badree went for the pull and ends up splicing it up in the air towards mid-wicket. Malik backtracks, keeps his eyes on the ball and holds onto it. Badree c Shoaib Malik b Talat 7(5) [6s-1]

Talat to Badree, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Talat to Keemo Paul, 1 run, pacy short ball that gets big on Paul, flat-batted down to long-on
Talat to Badree, 1 run, fuller and straightening off the deck, Badree gropes and runs it off the outer half to third man

By the way, that six was Badree's first six in International cricket.

Talat to Keemo Paul, 1 run, flicked away behind square on the leg-side

Hussain Talat, comes into the attack

Shoaib Malik to Badree, SIX, Badree connects and clears long-on. Badree moves across, finds the meat and launches it over long-on
Shoaib Malik to Badree, no run, "Howzaat" screams Sarfraz but the impact was well outside off. Malik too shakes his head. Darted full outside off, Badree walked across and missed it completely. Pinged low on the pad
Shoaib Malik to Badree, no run, Badree negates the hat-trick ball. Flat and quick outside off, Badree stands tall and punches it to cover

Samuel Badree, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Attacking field for Malik now. Four men lurking around the bat.

Shoaib Malik to Kesrick Williams, out Caught by Babar Azam!! Make that two in two for Malik. Windies plunge further into the darkness - 51/8. Malik tempts Williams with a floater outside off. The batsman takes the bait as he goes for the drive. No feet and only manages a thick outside edge. Straight into the bucket hands of Babar Azam at first slip. Can Malik claim a hat-trick? Kesrick Williams c Babar Azam b Shoaib Malik 0(1)

Shoaib Malik to Kesrick Williams, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Kesrick Williams, right handed bat, comes to the crease

Shoaib Malik to Emrit, out Caught by Talat!! The wheels are coming off for the Windies. Another batsman in quest of boundaries finds the fielder in the deep. Malik after a superb show with the bat, adds his name to the wicket column. Flighted on middle and leg, Emrit hacks it hard, lacks timing and hits it as far as deep square leg. The debutant judges it well, sets himself under it, doesn't panic and grabs it. Emrit c Talat b Shoaib Malik 11(20) [6s-1]

Shoaib Malik to Emrit, THAT'S OUT!! Caught!!

Hussain Talat takes a catch at deep square leg, is he unsure? The umpires aren't taking any chances as they disturb the third umpire. Looks fine on first viewing. No movement of the ropes. Third umpire is scrutinising lots of angles. Soft signal is OUT and it stays.

Shoaib Malik to Emrit, no run, offie too full, poked defensively off the front foot

153 runs in 48 balls. The writing is on the wall as Pakistan are bossing it here.

Shadab Khan to Keemo Paul, 2 runs, looped on the pads, Paul clears his front leg and whacks it to the left of deep square leg. Easy two taken
Shadab Khan to Emrit, 1 run, a cross-batted swat to long-on
Shadab Khan to Emrit, no run, slips in a googly, this gains steep bounce and Emrit is all at sea. Misses the nudge and is hit on the thigh pad
Shadab Khan to Emrit, no run, top-spinner from Shadab, cramps Emrit for room. Emrit doesn't pick and went back to cut. Ends up chopping it into the off-side
Shadab Khan to Emrit, SIX, Emrit shows his muscle power. Sees a flighted delivery turning away outside off, extends his long levers and tonks it over long-on
Shadab Khan to Emrit, no run, pitched on off, forward and blocked

Shadab Khan [2.0-0-4-1] is back into the attack

Shoaib Malik to Keemo Paul, FOUR, edged but safe! Tossed up just outside off, Paul prods forward and chalks an outside edge. Flies to the left of first slip and runs away to the fence
Shoaib Malik to Emrit, 1 run, straying on leg, tucked through square leg. Any thoughts of attempting the second was aborted
Shoaib Malik to Keemo Paul, 1 run, flighted full outside off, push-driven to long-off
Shoaib Malik to Emrit, 1 run, flattish outside off, Emrit punches it to cover. A fumble from the fielder and they take the single. Sarfraz isn't one bit happy with the effort
Shoaib Malik to Emrit, no run, Malik angles it quick outside off, Emrit waits looking to guide it to short third man. Beaten by the skiddiness of the deck
Shoaib Malik to Emrit, no run, short but too slow. Dead batted under his nose

Shoaib Malik, right-arm off break, comes into the attack

Required rate is hovering around 16.9

Mohammad Nawaz to Keemo Paul, no run, beaten by sharp turn. Lands it around off, draws Paul forward and gets the ball to spin viciously with some bounce. So, so close to biting the outside edge
Mohammad Nawaz to Keemo Paul, no run, slower but on target. Defended off the front foot
Mohammad Nawaz to Keemo Paul, no run, on the stumps, Paul is happy to show his straight bat in defence
Mohammad Nawaz to Emrit, 1 run, darted full, knocked down to long-on
Mohammad Nawaz to Emrit, no run, pushed through quicker, Emrit stomps his front foot forward and blocks
Mohammad Nawaz to Emrit, no run, beauty. Pitched up, Emrit is neither forward nor back. Ends up tamely stabbing at it and the ball spins just enough to beat him on the outside edge
Shadab Khan to Emrit, 1 run, teased wider of off, Emrit accepts it with glee and drives it to sweeper cover
Shadab Khan to Emrit, no run, much better from Emrit. Gets his bat close to pad and combats for the wrong 'un on this occasion. Smothered
