Wahab Riaz says stats look good for Pakistan despite defeat by West Indies

  • Pakistan face England next and Wahab Riaz does not believe there is much between the two teams
  • Pakistan lost their recent series in England 4-0 but Riaz says it was the fielding that let Pakistan down

Wahab Riaz is turning to stats to give Pakistan heart after tough start to their ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign.

Numbers can look harsh in black and white, but Riaz insisted there were positives to take from a seven-wicket defeat by the West Indies at Trent Bridge.

Despite posting 105, their second lowest total in tournament history, the Pakistan bowlers showed encouraging signs in their mission impossible.

Riaz, back in the team for the first time in two years, has done the maths and insists there are reasons not to be fearful.
