The struggling Pakistan unit will kick start their World Cup campaign against the Windies at the much-hyped Trent Bridge on Friday. Pakistan has batsmen with 50+ ODI batting average in the top three and for once their bowling looks like a weaker section. They need to bring out some special performance with the bat to stop the Caribbean team which has big hitting players. The Jason Holder-led team posted 421 in the warm-up game and are expected to replicate it on a flat Nottingham track.

All the key stats and numbers ahead of the game between Windies and the CT 2017 champions:

2Windies have won only two of their last ten ODI matches against Pakistan. Out of the remaining eight matches in this period, Pakistan won seven while another game ended in a Tie. Two victories for the Windies in this span includes a 150-run win during the 2015 CWC.


5 – The Windies team won five of the seven matches they played at the Trent Bridge in the ODI format. Their recent most game at this venue in 2017 ended in a washout while the 1984 ODI against England was won by the hosts.

The Caribbean team defeated New Zealand in the 1979 CWC at this venue and England in four ODIs between 1995 and 2007.

11 – Pakistan now have played 11 consecutive matches in ODI cricket without a victory; their longest such streak in this format. Pakistan lost ten of those 11 games while another game ended without a result.

27.76Chris Gayle’s batting average of 27.76 in ODIs against Pakistan is the 2nd lowest for him against any team he has batted five innings. His lowest is against Australia as he averages only 26.73 against them.

Gayle has scored 944 runs in 34 innings against Pakistan with three tons and three fifties. In the eight innings since 2011, Gayle has only managed to muster only 112 runs at an average of 14 with the best score of 39.

49 – Ashley Nurse needs one more wicket to complete 50 wickets in ODI cricket. The off-spinner has claimed 49 wickets in 50 ODIs at an average of 41.61 with two 4-wicket hauls.

93.22Shai Hope has scored 839 runs in his last 11 ODI innings at an average of 93.22. In these 11 innings, Hope scored four centuries and three half-centuries. He has scored those runs at a healthy strike-rate of 93.42.

462.5 – Average first innings winning total in the ODI format since 2014 at the Trent Bridge. In seven completed ODI matches since 2014, only twice a team batting first won an ODI at this venue. England posted 481 and 444 against Australia and Pakistan to win those; the top two biggest ODI totals. In these seven ODIs, the average first innings total reads 342.

944 – Chris Gayle needs 56 more runs for becoming the 3rd Windies player to score 1000 runs in the ODI World Cup. Only Brian Lara (1225) and Viv Richards (1013) have scored over 1000 runs in the World Cup for the Windies.

998 – Andre Russell needs two more runs to reach 1000 runs in the ODI format. Russell will be the 11th player with 1000+ runs and 50+ wickets in ODIs for the Windies when he scores those two runs.

18992 – Chris Gayle needs 8 more runs to complete 19000 runs in International cricket. Gayle needs 63 more runs to become the 3rd player with 19000 International runs for the Windies as he aggregated 55 runs across three ODIs for ICC World XI.
