The 2nd match of the ICC World Cup 2019 will be played between Pakistan and Windies at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham.
The match starts at 10:30 AM local time (9:30 AM GMT) (3:00 PM IST).
Pakistan and Windies will get their campaign underway in the World Cup 2019 on Friday. The Caribbean side slammed 421 runs in the warm-up game against New Zealand and they will be hoping to score at the same clip. Pakistan, on the other hand, have lost their last 10 completed ODIs and will be eager come out of the rut as soon as possible going into the mega event.
To make things worse, they also lost to Afghanistan in the warm-up encounter. As far as the team selection is concerned, Pakistan have decided to bench Shoaib Malik, Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Hasnain for this game which means Mohammad Amir is fit and raring to go. Also, one of Haris Sohail and Imad Wasim, probably the former, will sit out.
