West Indies 108 for 3 (Gayle 50, Amir 3-26) beat Pakistan 105 (Thomas 4-27, Holder 3-42) by seven wickets
As it happened
There’s a simple reason why this game was so short: because the West Indies bowlers were, too. In a spell of fast bowling more suited to Test cricket of the 1980s than limited-overs in this more cautious age, West Indies stuck to a length that kept pushing Pakistan further and further back. It wasn’t far back enough, and, led by the youngest member of their squad, Oshane Thomas, they shot Pakistan out for their second lowest total ever in World Cup history; it would have been double figures but for a 22-run tenth-wicket partnership, the highest of the innings.
West Indies’ chase wasn’t quite as convincing as one might have expected: just a couple of months ago, a similar chase against England was achieved with contemptuous ease. But there was never any doubt about the outcome of the game whatsoever, even if Mohammad Amir put up the best bowling performance he has managed since the Champions Trophy in 2017, picking up all three of West Indies wickets in a valiant effort to make the game competitive.
