The second day of action in the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy saw the West Indies take down Pakistan in Group B play on Friday, 172-170.

Bowlers were the key on Friday, as the runs were difficult to come by from The Oval in London.

It wasn't an easy feat for Kemar Roach and the West Indies, who asserted themselves early after winning the toss and opting to field first, according to ICC Twitter

Pakistan dug themselves into an enormous hole in the beginning, as they were held to just 170 in 48 overs, as the West Indies' bowlers were too much. Chris Gayle had a lot to do with the West Indies' success early on, according to BBC Sport.

It wasn't over for Pakistan though, as Misbah-ul-haq put his club right back within striking distance after Pakistan had fallen down early.

Despite Misbah-ul-haq's efforts, it wasn't enough for Pakistan. Ultimately, the lack of scoring hurt Pakistan, as newscaster Mansoor Ali Khan noted:

When it was all said and done, West Indies' top scorer Chris Gayle was one of the difference makers on the pitch Friday while teammate Kemar Roach was dubbed Man of the Match. 

Friday's event was the first of what cricket fans are hoping is many competitive matches between the eight teams competing for the ICC trophy. The first match of the tournament was a lopsided one, as India defeated South Africa 331-305 on Thursday.

The West Indies will look to carry this momentum into their next match against India on June 11 at 5:30 a.m. ET. That will be a matchup of two Group B teams that won their opening matches.

Pakistan will return to the pitch on June 10 at 8 a.m. ET vs. South Africa.

Another low-scoring match like this likely won't bode well for either club as this tournament progresses.
