Pakistan skittles West Indies for 112

Skipper Shahid Afridi took four wickets as Pakistan dismissed West Indies for a paltry 112 on Wednesday to take a giant step toward the World Cup semifinals.
Opening bowlers Umar Gul (1-11) and Mohammad Hafeez (2-12) left West Indies reeling at 16-3 before Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnarine Chanderpaul cautiously guided their team past the 50 mark.
But legspinner Afridi's introduction into the attack accounted for Sarwan, who made a tortuous 24 off 68 balls, and West Indies then collapsed to 71-8 after losing four wickets in nine balls.
Chanderpaul (44 not out) and Kemar Roach (16) at least took West Indies past its lowest total at the World Cup before Afridi (4-30) finished off the innings in the 44th over to take his tournament-leading tally to 21.
