In 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup, Pakistan cricket team is to play West Indies cricket team in Quarter final. So far, the Pakistani cricket side has been brilliant in their performance and ended as the top team of Group A. As for West Indies, things haven’t been very easy although they made to the Quarter finals. Some of the key points to be kept in mind regarding the Quarter final between Pakistan and West Indian cricket teams in 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup are:

1)      The batting line up of Pakistan cricket team has been the weakness so far for them. Many flaws have been pretty evident in the openers of Pakistan cricket team. The openers failed to give a good scoring base in the targets set by Pakistan cricket team in 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. Same is the situation with West Indies cricket team. Their batting lineup has failed completely in World Cup so far.

2)      The bowling attack of both Pakistan and West Indian cricket teams has been strong and consistent. For Pakistan cricket team, their bowling attack along with Umer Gul and Shoaib Akhtar was further enhanced by Shahid Afridi who is the leading wicket taker in 2011 Cricket World Cup so far. From West Indian bowling line, Rampaul, Russell and Sammy have the potential to do the damage on the field.

3)      Although Pakistan chased very well in 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup but the risk is always there when it comes to chase. If Pakistan gets a chance to bat first, the match might turn in favor of Pakistan cricket team. However if West Indies bats first and puts up a huge total then Pakistan will have to play a very safe innings by saving wickets and building partnerships.

Overall, the unpredictable pattern of 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup doesn’t allow us declaring any team favorite in the quarter finals. A better team work would surely pay off.

None found.

    Yes it is rite if pakistan bat first and if they will give good total then there chances are to win. In the chasing pakistani records are very bad because they are always taking presure on second betting. And main thing that pakistani openers should be play positive to give good base.
