Christchurch, New Zealand: Denesh Ramdin and Lendl Simmons scored half-centuries and Darren Bravo retired hurt on 49 as the West Indies scored 310-6 after being sent in to bat by Pakistan at the Cricket World Cup on Saturday.

Ramdin scored 51 and Simmons (50) was run out on the last ball as the West Indies recovered from a slow start to post a decent total, aided by five dropped catches from Pakistan.

Andre Russell clobbered 42 from 13 balls, including four 6s, in a 51-run stand with Simmons in the last three overs.

The West Indies was in early trouble at 28-2 with Dwayne Smith and Chris Gayle out cheaply, but Bravo helped restore the innings despite a left-leg injury and being hit by the ball as he attempted a run.

Haris Solail was the most successful of the Pakistan bowlers, taking two for 62.

Gayle had another batting disappointment, out for four for the second consecutive match after skying a catch to Wahab Riaz off the bowling of Mohammad Irfan with the West Indies on 17.

Smith, who was dropped by Nasir Jamshed at third man on the ball before Gayle fell, was next to go. On 23, he nicked a delivery from Sohail Khan to Haris Sohail at slip, angrily smashing his hand against his bat as he walked off the field.

Bravo survived an appeal for caught behind on 14 by wicketkeeper Umar Akmal. Replays showed Bravo's bat had hit his front pad and not the ball, and he was ruled not out on review.

In the 24th over, Bravo needed treatment when he was hit in the head while taking a single. He and Samuels took a quick run and the throw hit Bravo as he dived into the crease, delaying play while the West Indies physio came out and as Pakistan players gathered around to make sure Bravo was OK.

Samuels was out for 38 in the next over, caught by substitute fielder Yasir Shah off Haris Sohail's bowling.

Both teams lost their opening matches — Pakistan went down to arch-rival India by 76 runs and the West Indies were beaten by second-tier Ireland.

Pakistan made one change Saturday, bringing in Nasir Jamshed for Yasir Shah to play an extra batsman. Left-arm spinner Sulieman Benn replaced fast bowler Kemar Roach in the only change to the West Indies lineup.

"We've put it behind us," West Indies captain Jason Holder said. "Our focus is on this game."

The West Indies has lost its last four World Cup matches dating back to 2011 — they have never lost five in a row.
