The second match of the World Cup 2019 will see Pakistan and West Indies playing each other on the 31st of May 2019 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham. From 3:00 PM IST onwards, viewers can enjoy an aggressive and positive West Indies on the pitch, who won their warm-up game against New Zealand scoring 421 runs.
Since October 2018, Shai Hope has been a leading runs’ scorer in the West Indies team. From around 17 innings, he has managed to provide his team at least 1132 runs including 5 centuries. For the most part of the 20 years, West Indies dominated the sport and it would be another 8 years when West Indies would give the trophy away. The team, this time around, seems pretty well-settled and together headed by captain Jason Holder, who is respected a lot. However
Probable Playing XI
Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, ShimronHetmeyer, Andre Russell, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas, Kemar Roach
Shoaib Malik and Mohammed Hafiz are an experienced pair of hands in the Pakistan Cricket team. Shaheen Afridi is all set to lead the attack, who has displayed a respectable economy rate and consistency in the past, along with another probable Mohammed Amir. Since 1992, the team has been rather unpredictable. In a single bounce, they lost 10 ODIs and even lost the warm-up match against Afghanistan. They still have the popular Champions Trophy 2017 to salvage their performance.
Probable Playing XI
Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Sarfraz Ahmed, Shoaib Malik, Imad Wasim, Shahdab Khan, Mohammad Amir, Hasan Ali, Shaheen Afridi
For much of the time at Nottingham, overcast skies are expected and the hot summer weather is yet to settle in. The temperatures are still cool, and the pitch is excellent for batting. It is also left to be seen if the spinners can take full advantage of the weather.
