Who would have thought of such a low scoring match at Trent Bridge which produced 2 highest ODI totals in the recent past? The match ended in just 35.2 overs.
The West Indian bowlers dominated the match, and then the batting was dominated somewhat by Chirs Gayle. Let’s see what new records were created today.
The match length of 35.2 overs, the second shortest match between two Test playing nations in the World Cup history in which a result was achieved. The Bangladesh-West Indies match at Dhaka in 2011 got over in 31.1 overs. Both the times West Indies was involved.
105 in 21.4 overs is Pakistan’s shortest innings in the World Cup history and second lowest total after 74 vs England in Adelaide in 1992. Pakistan also holds the record for the lowest total in a World Cup Final. They made just 132 in World Cup final, held at Lord’s in 1999.
11 defeats in a row in completed ODIs. This is Pakistan’s worst losing streak in one-day internationals history.
This is Pakistan’s second biggest defeat in ODIs in terms of balls (218) to spare. The record is for 225 balls, against West Indies in Capetown, 1993.
Chris Gayle has a 50 plus score in each of his last 6 innings in ODIs. Only the second West Indies batsman to achieve this feat after Gordon Greenidge in 1980.
Gayle has now hit 40 sixes in World Cup history which is now the highest number of sixes hit by any batsman. The second in the list is AB de Villiers who has 37 sixes on his name.
4 for 27 by Oshane Thomas is the 10th best bowling figure for a West Indian bowler in World Cup (Brendon Julien v Sri Lanka in 1975 and Jason Holder v Ireland in 2015 also took 4 for 27).
