West Indies pulled off a stunning tie against Pakistan in their one-day international at St Lucia on Friday as number 11 Jason Holder smashed 14 off the final over of the day.

The tourists looked on course for a victory which could have put them 2-1 up in the five-match series when their opponents went into the last over on 215-9, in reply to Pakistan’s 229-6.

But, off the bowling of Wahab Riaz, Holder got two singles, a four, a six and, off the last ball, a two to complete an incredible recovery. Lendl Simmons had made 75 to give the Windies hope.

Misbah-ul-Haq’s 75 was the mainstay of the Pakistan innings, helping them to what had looked a defendable total, with Holder the pick of the bowlers with two for 40 from his 10 overs.
