ICC CWC 2019 2nd Match : West Indies Defeated Pakistan By 7 Wickets
Aggressive bowling by the Fast Bowlers disturbed the top order of Pakistan’s batting unit quiet well. Cottrell set the stage by taking the first wicket of Pakistan then Russell picked up the wicket of Fakhar Zaman who was looking quiet dangerous. Holder and Thomas then joined the party and dominated the rest of the batting unit.
It took West Indies team of 35.2 overs of on field action to hand Pakistan their 11th One Day International match defeat in a row. Its’ their longest losing streak in this format. After Sarfaraz’s men were blasted out with short balls, Chris Gayle came out with the idea of finishing things off in a hurry and made short work of the chase with a 33-ball fifty.
If you weren’t taking West Indies seriously already, you are now. This has been a statement and a half today, almost resembling their annihilation of England at St Lucia in one of the ODIs a couple of months back. They mean business and if their gun players, who look really hungry, can remain injury free, this might just be something special.
Pakistan, on the other hand, have had a shocker. But this is no reason to rule them out. They’ve come back from bad situations before. Down one day, up the next, who knows. They’re Pakistan for a reason.
