Cricket World Cup 2019: Pakistan’s poor run in ODI’s continued as their batting failed to come good in their ICC World Cup opener against the Windies. The Men in Green walked into the marquee tournament low-in-confidence and it looks like there is no end to the bad run. After winning the toss, Windies invited Pakistan to bat first. It was a great toss for Windies to win as they picked up early wickets and never allowed any Pakistani batsman to settle in the middle. There was a clear strategy in place for the Windies team as they peppered Pakistan with short-pitched deliveries. Pakistan batsmen who are traditionally not good against short-pitched bowl was found wanting as they lost wickets at regular intervals.

Jason Holder and Oshane Thomas were the picks of the bowlers as they scalped three wickets each and Russell chipped in with two wickets. Babar Azam and Fakhar Zaman with 22 apiece were the top-scorers for the Men in Green.

Here is how Pakistan got trolled on Twitter:

At the time of filing the copy, Pakistan were 87/9 in the 21st over and are on the verge of getting bowled out within 100.
