Cricket Match Preview:

A team on losing streak, Pakistan, will take on a team that seems to have found their mojo back, West Indies, in the second cricket game of the World Cup. While Pakistan are coming into the tournament after losing their warm-up game against Afghanistan, West Indies are fresh off a splendid performance against New Zealand in their final warm-up.

Very few teams roll like Pakistan. If one looks at their record pre and post that Champions Trophy victory in 2017, it just does not inspire confidence. But that is quintessential Pakistan. Nobody expected them to win the title in 2017 Champions Trophy, least of all against India, whom they have had a poor record at world events. But not only did they win the title, but they also hammered India in the final. Pakistan will need every bit of that inspiration in this tournament as well, as ever since that tournament, they have won only a handful number of cricket games.

West Indies, on the other hand, do not have a great record for decades. But something has changed in their cricket in recent times. Ever since Chris Gayle has been included in the eleven, they are almost playing an extended T20 brand of cricket in ODIs. They took on England in their backyard a few months ago and held them to a 2-2 draw. It was a series that saw some really high scores and West Indies matched England for score-to-score. Anybody who has been watching cricket in the last four years knows that is not a mean task.

Pakistan should not also be too worried about themselves as their batsmen looked in fine form in the cricket series against England. Albeit they lost the series by 4-0, their batsmen consistently raked up scores of over 300 runs. If they can get their bowling sorted, they can gain some momentum in the tournament. For now, they will have to contend with the mavericks of Caribbean Islands, and it is not going to be easy.

Cricket Match Information:

Pakistan will take on West Indies in the second cricket game of the World Cup. It will be the first game for both Pakistan and West Indies in the tournament. Each side is required to play nine cricket games and four teams with the most number of wins will qualify for the next round.

Pakistan

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Pakistan will be led by the experienced Sarfraz Ahmed. Our prediction is of the inclusion of Mohammad Aamir in the playing eleven for this cricket game if he is fit.

Here is our prediction of Pakistan’s playing XI:

  • Imam-ul-Haq
  • Fakhar Zaman
  • Sarfraz Ahmed
  • Babar Azam
  • Shoaib Malik
  • Shahdab Khan
  • Imad Wasim
  • Hasan Ali
  • Mohammad Aamir
  • Asif Ali
  • Shaheen Shah Afridi

West Indies

Probable XI (Our Prediction):

West Indies are going to be led by inspirational Jason Holder. West Indies are coming off a big win against New Zealand in the warm-up game, where they amassed the score of 421 runs while batting first. Our prediction is of the similar lineup that played against England in the series back in West Indies.

Here is our prediction of West Indies’ playing XI:

  • Evin Lewis
  • Shai Hope
  • Chris Gayle
  • Shimron Hetmyer
  • Darren Bravo
  • Sheldon Cottrell
  • Ashley Nurse
  • Carlos Brathwaite
  • KAJ Roach
  • Andre Russell
  • Jason Holder

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Shaheen Shah Afridi is going to be our man to watch out for. He has been expensive in the last few weeks, but one suspects that if Pakistan have to pick up wickets, it will have to come from him. Our prediction is of a good performance from him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international ODI cricket game played here was between Pakistan and England recently. England won that cricket game by three wickets after chasing down 340 runs in the final over. Our prediction is of the score of around 300 once again. Conditions are expected to be cold and windy.

Our Prediction:

West Indies will begin this game of cricket as favourites. But their madness can be controlled if Pakistan keep on taking wickets regularly. But going by the current form, our prediction is of a West Indies’ win.

Top Batsman (Prediction):

Babar Azam (PAK) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Shahdab Khan (PAK) – 2 or more wickets

Most Sixes (Prediction):

Chris Gayle (WI)
