The Pakistan cricket team is all set to begin its ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign today (May 31) by playing against twice World Champions West Indies at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. The match is scheduled to start at 2:30 pm (PST) and 10:30 am (local time).
In Pakistan’s recent series with England, it was visible that even scoring more than 300 wasn’t enough to grab a win and the team needs to explore a new strategy in order to be successful in the World Cup.
Pakistan requires a solid and potent base, especially in the top to keep striking on the flow of runs in the middle order, and even some element of power-hitting is required by the tail-enders. West Indies have proved themselves as one of the strongest participants of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. The recent squad has a balanced combination of experienced and fresh players, all ready to put on a festival of runs and wickets.
Pakistan: Shoaib Malik, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed (c & wk), Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir, Haris Sohail, Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Asif Ali, Imad Wasim, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi, Mohammad Hasnain
West Indies: Jason Holder (c), Evin Lewis, Darren Bravo, Chris Gayle, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Nicholas Pooran, Oshane Thomas, Shai Hope (wk), Shimron Hetmyer, Fabien Allen, Sheldon Cottrell, Shannon Gabriel, Kemar Roach, Ashley Nurse
