Welcome to the 2nd match of ICC World Cup 2019 between West Indies and Pakistan. Two-time champions West Indies will take on 1992 winners Pakistan in their #CWC19 opening clash today!
It will be very interesting to see the Gayle storm at the beginning especially in the powerplay. On the other hand, Sarfraz Ahmed might go with a spinner to start the proceedings with the ball, just like Faf du Plessis did with Imran Tahir to get rid of Jonny Bairstow on Thursday.

West Indies have won the toss and have opted to field
Skipper’s at Toss
Sarfraz Ahmed: We wanted to field first because of the moisture on the wicket and overcast conditions. I don’t matter, if we survive the first few overs then it will be a good pitch. Our batters are in good form. We announced our twelve yesterday so out of that Asif Ali is not playing. We have experience in our bowling line-up and I have confidence in my bowlers.
Jason Holder: We will field first. I don’t think conditions are going to change much. We had a good camp and two decent warm-up matches. Evin Lewis is not fit and Shannon Gabriel is also not fit. We’ve left out Allen and Roach.
Pakistan: Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Hafeez, Sarfaraz Ahmed(w/c), Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Shimron Hetmyer, Nicholas Pooran(w), Andre Russell, Jason Holder(c), Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas
