Between Pakistan and West Indies, the second match of the World Cup being played on Trent Bridge ground, the end of the first innings was seen as an incredible. Pakistan’s team has been facing consistent defeat even before the World Cup. Prior to this match, 10 of 11 matches had to face defeat.
In this way, seeing his performance against the West Indies, it looks as if the series will continue in the World Cup. The Pakistani team, who were batting first after lost a toss, would not have imagined that the start of their World Cup campaign would be so embarrassing.
Pakistan’s first innings was reduced to just 105, which is their second lowest score in the World Cup. The West Indies bowlers, with their bowling, reminded the Pakistani batsmen of the 1980s when they hit bouncers. The Pakistani batsmen did not have an answer for the balls fired by the Caribbean bowlers. The result was that Pakistan lost the last seven wickets in just 53 balls, in 43 runs.
For West Indies, fast bowler Oshane Thomas took four wickets by giving 27 runs. In the same way, Jason Holder took three wickets. Sheldon Cottrell took one wicket and Andre Russell got two wickets while tremendously bowling. If the West Indies bowlers continue bowling like this then this team can prove to be extremely dangerous for the other teams in the World Cup.
West Indies quick Inning:-
After that, chasing the target, the Caribbean team achieved the target by losing 3 wickets in 13.3 overs with the whirlwind inning of Chris Gayle’s where he hit 50 runs in 34-ball. In the end, Nicholas Pooran was unbeaten on 34 * and Hetmyer 6 *.
If it is talked about Pakistan’s poor performance in the World Cup, this is their second-worst performance. Earlier, Pakistan’s team was all out for 74 against England in 1992 World Cup. Also, in terms of playing the lowest over in ODI cricket, the Pakistan team failed to break their own record.
Even before 1993 all out in 21.4 overs against the West Indies, the Pakistan team collapsed in 19.5 overs against the West Indies. After this performance of Pakistani team, there has been great disappointment among the Pakistani fans. Now it will be interesting to see if they will do a similar comedy show in the next match.
