Pakistan vs West Indies Quarter Final – ICC World Cup 2011
Pakistan vs West Indies ICC World Cup 2011
Date: 23 March 2011 – Time: 09:00 GMT
Venue: Share-e-Bangla Stadium, Dhaka
In the first Quarter Final match of the Cricket World Cup we will have two Pakistan taking on West Indies in what will be a exciting match up between probably two of the most inconsistant and unpredictable teams in the World Cup. Pakistan are coming into this match on the back of topping the group A and they defeated highly rated Australian team who were unbeaten in the World Cup matches since 1999 and it was Pakistan who defeated them last time around as well. Predicting a winner in this one is anybody’s guess as Pakistan will be hoping to getinto the semi Final while Windies will be hoping to get back to glory days in the World Cup cricket.
Pakistan are a team which can surprise anybody and it will be interesting to see how they come up against West indies who are very similar in style and predictability. West Indies have been playing reasonably well in the cricket so far, while Pakistan are coming into this match on the back of a great series win against New Zealand and won their 5 matches in the group and topped their group.
Predictions: Like I said earlier Pakistan are the favourties to win the knock out match but they tend to struggle when they have the favourites tag attached to them and we never know what kind of Pakistan cricket team going to turn up, having said that Pakistan under Shahid Afridi captaincy will go into the match full of confidence and will be favourites to win the match.
