Pakistan vs West Indies

The knock out matches in the Cricket World Cup 2011 are going to start from tomorrow as the league matches ended up two days back on Sunday. The first quarter final match is going to be played tomorrow (23rd March, 2011) between the leader of the Group A and the team with fourth place in Group B i.e., between Pakistan and West Indies. The match is going to be played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur and will be starting at 2:00 pm IST. The team winning this match will get qualified for the semi-finals.

Pakistan are on a good run as they topped the points table in Group A with 10 points being the first to qualify to the quarter finals and most importantly putting an end to unbeaten 34 match record of Australia in World Cups. They are high on confidence and will go tomorrow’s match with full of confidence to face the Caribbeans. Pakistani captain Shahid Afridi is on a good run as he is bowling well and is involved in some of his team’s victories on its way to the quarter finals. Pakistan is good in the field as they remained impressive in the field with both the ball and the bat.

West Indies are at fourth position in Group B and qualified to the quarter finals with the help of their run rate being more than Bangladesh even though both the teams have equal points. They lost their last match against India which will keep them a bit low in confidence compared to the Pakistan in tomorrow’s match. With Gayle, Chanderpaul and Roach being fit to tomorrow’s match there will be some boost up for the team.

West Indies have won only three of their last 16 matches they played against Pakistan. West Indies should do well in all the here departments if they want to reach the semi finals. However both the teams will not take it for granted and will give out their best as it the knock out stage of the world cup. Hope the team that will put in its full efforts will reach the semi finals.
