Pakistan came into their opening match on the back of 10 successive ODI losses, but they plumbed new depths against West Indies, in a match which saw the team record its second-lowest score of 105 in tournament history.
Pakistan’s lowest total of 74 was during the 1992 World Cup against England. This is also Pakistan’s lowest total against West Indies in the World Cup while previous was 160 back in 2015. Pakistan's sloppy and vulnerable batting was cruelly exposed by some short-pitched bowling by the West Indies pacemen on a Trent Bridge pitch famous for big totals.
Pakistan’s pathetic display with the bat in their tournament opener garnered a lot of criticism from the cricket fraternity as they showed their disappointment and anger on Twitter.
