Carl Hooper starred for the hosts in the first innings as he played an unbeaten knock of 178 runs to take West Indies' total to 438. For Pakistan, Waqar Younis scalped five wickets.

Inzamam came to the crease with Pakistan's score at 108/4. The right-handed batsman played a knock of 123 runs, studded with 11 boundaries and one six.

With this knock, Pakistan posted a total of 326 runs, giving Windies a lead of 112. In the second innings, Windies posted 153/4 and the match ended in a draw.
