Pakistan came into the World Cup with a good show with the bat in the series against England, but the men in green had a forgettable opening game at the mega event. Windies' fast bowlers gave Pakistan's batting line-up a run for their money, as Sarafraz Ahmed's men were bowled out for a paltry 105, their 2nd lowest total in a World Cup game. It seemed a completely different pitch when Chris Gayle came out to bat. The universe boss went after the bowlers from the word go and smashed a 34 ball 50. Nicholas Pooran with a quick fire 34 not out, helped the Windies win their World Cup opener by 7 wickets.
