The match was a straight shootout to see who would finish runners-up behind India, but the Caribbean side lost both its dangerous openers inside four overs.

Chris Gayle was stumped off Mohammad Hafeez for five, and Dwayne Smith was caught behind off left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir for eight.

WI lost two wickets in the 11th over as Lendl Simmons was run out for 31, and three balls later, Marlon Samuels chopped on Shahid Afridi for 20.

Denesh Ramdin went cheaply, but Dwayne Bravo hit Umar Gul for 21 in the 18th over. Then, captain Darren Sammy got in on the act as Saeed Ajmal went for 24 in the penultimate over.

Bravo went for 46, made off 26 balls, in the final over, but Sammy added 14 more runs to finish unbeaten on 42 from just 20 deliveries.

Pakistan's reply started in the worst possible fashion as Ahmed Shehzad, a centurion against Bangladesh, was trapped leg before wicket from the first ball of the innings by Krishmar Santokie.

Leg-spinner Samuel Badree then ran through the top order to finish with 3-10 from his four overs. Kamran Akmal, his brother Umar Akmal and Shoaib Malik were all back in the hutch before the end of the sixth over as Pakistan stuttered to 13-4.

Skipper Mohammad Hafeez departed for 19 before Sohaib Maqsood became Ramdin's third stumping, this time off Sunil Narine, for 18.

In the 15th over, Narine had Tanvir caught in the deep for 14 before Afridi became Ramdin's fourth stumping victim after making 18.

Andre Russell and Santokie then took their second wicket apiece as Pakistan were dismissed in just 17.5 overs.
