Shadab Khan makes history of T20 cricket in his debut
Bridgetown, Barbados: Pakistan's new leg spinner has made history in his first T20 match played here at Bridgetown.

Shadab Khan produced an outstanding debut performance as Pakistan limited West Indies to 111 for eight batting first in the first fixture of a four-match T20 international series at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Sunday.

Brought on as the fifth bowler after the hosts were put in on a bright, breezy afternoon, Shadab’s mesmerising mixture of leg-breaks and googlies earned him figures of three for seven, the most economical ever in the history of T20 international cricket in a complete four-over spell.

World champions West Indies only managed to get into three figures thanks to an unbeaten 34 from captain Carlos Brathwaite.

He dominated a 37-run eighth-wicket partnership with fellow-Barbadian Jason Holder, who was dismissed off the last delivery of the innings.
