ICC Cricket World Cup: West Indies beat Pakistan by 7 wickets – May 31, 2019

Result: 2nd match, ICC Cricket World Cup at Nottingham, May 3, 2019

West Indies 108 for 3 (Gayle 50, Amir 3-26) beat Pakistan 105 (Thomas 4-27, Holder 3-42) by seven wickets
As it happened .…. REPORT

There’s a simple reason why this game was so short: because the West Indies bowlers were, too. In a spell of fast bowling more suited to Test cricket of the 1980s than limited-overs in this more cautious age, West Indies stuck to a length that kept pushing Pakistan further and further back.

It wasn’t far back enough, and, led by the youngest member of their squad, Oshane Thomas, they shot Pakistan out for their second lowest total ever in World Cup history; it would have been double figures but for a 22-run tenth-wicket partnership, the highest of the innings.
