Pakistan can turn to history for inspiration after opening loss

  • Pakistan lost by seven wickets in opening game against the West Indies
  • Sarfaraz backs team to turn things around against England

Pakistan suffered a seven-wicket defeat to the West Indies in their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup opener in Nottingham.

Beaten by seven-wickets it was their second-lowest World Cup score in history as they were rattled out for just 105 by a hostile West Indian bowling attack at Trent Bridge.

It was their 11th consecutive ODI defeat but maybe they can take some inspiration from history.

When they last lifted the World Cup in 1992 they lost by ten wickets to the West Indies in their tournament opener, so it could be worse.
