Windies ready for Pakistan showdown

West Indies arrive in England as world champions of Twenty20 cricket and are in the hunt for Champions Trophy success.

    India's cricketers have won the opening match of the Champions Trophy, beating South Africa in Cardiff.

    The other two teams in that group are Pakistan and the West Indies, who play each other at the Kennington Oval on Friday.

    Success in the one-day game has helped revive West Indies cricket, with their big hitters attracting young fans.
