West Indies tear through Pakistan, injury scare for Russell

Andre Russell suffered an injury against Pakistan.

Andre Russell suffered an injury against Pakistan.

Andre Russell was treated for an apparent ankle injury as West Indies skittled Pakistan out for 105,  their second-lowest Cricket World Cup total at Trent Bridge.

Russell took 2-4 in a lively three-over spell in the second game of the World Cup on Friday, but went down after pulling up in the closing stages of Pakistan's pitiful innings.

The all-rounder, a crucial figure in the Windies' squad, looked to have done damage when stooping for the ball in the deep and toppled over the boundary to receive treatment.

His absence was not felt, however, as with the very next delivery, Oshane Thomas cleaned up Wahab Riaz to end Pakistan’s innings in only 21.4 overs.

Thomas took 4-27, with captain Jason Holder claiming figures of 3-42.
