    Jason Holder (2/2): Chris started us off tremendously. He eases the pressure in a chase like this. He imposed himself and kept them at bay. Wanted to start with a win. Been a long build-up to the tournament. Don’t want to get too far ahead. As I said in the press conference, I have no expectations, just want to make the people back home proud.

    Jason Holder (1/2): Got off to a really good start. Got wickets with the new ball which is what we ask of the guys. Russell’s an impact player. Really good to see the impact we had today, followed by Oshane. Credit to the boys who stuck to the task. Russell can get the ball through, bowled some sharp balls today. He’s one who gives 100% everytime. Good to have a young quick. We know Oshane can be expensive, but he’s a wicket-taker and that’s a gamble we’re willing to take. We see him as an impact player.

    Sarfaraz Ahmed: If you lose the toss in these conditions, and lose wickets, it’s hard to come back into the game. Have to play positive cricket here. Didn’t do well as a batting unit today. We know they’re going to come hard with their pace bowlers. We didn’t play well against the short ball. Today was a bad day.

    Oshane Thomas: Andre Russell led the way with the ball, he was very aggressive and basically set it up for us with the aggressive bouncer, we executed our plans well. Anywhere I get to bowl I’m happy to run in and bowl, want to keep winning games for West Indies. I just want to keep working hard and doing my things.

Live cricket score, West Indies vs Pakistan

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of Match 2 of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between West Indies  and Pakistan at Trent Bridge, Nottingham on Friday.

If a cursory glance across their recent record is anything to go by, there is absolutely nothing differentiating Pakistan and West Indies, two sides who have been the carriers of the “unpredictable” tag for way too long. For starters, Pakistan are coming into the World Cup with probably the worst record by any team. They have faced defeats in their last ten ODIs.

On the other hand, of their last five games, West Indies have won two and lost three, including the final of the tri-series to Bangladesh. Pakistan then became the first side to score three 300-plus totals, all in losing causes, while West Indies have put scores of 389, 381, 360 and 331 in their last ten ODIs. Whom do you pick? Perhaps the warm-ups. Pakistan were shaken up by a defeat to Afghanistan while West Indies hammered 421 runs against a side like New Zealand, whose quicks have troubled the best. Even then, we wouldn’t pick an outright fest.
