The World Cup 2019 will witness only the 2nd inconsequential game when Windies faces Afghanistan at the Leeds which will be the last game for both teams. Windies began the tournament with a bang by crushing Pakistan but got only one point in the next seven games; that too via washout. Afghanistan, on the other hand, has been far from their standards. They lost all the eight matches they played in the tournament including last-over thrillers against India and Pakistan which they had in their grasp at a stage.

All the key stats and numbers ahead of the last matches of Afghanistan and Windies in the tournament:

3-1 – Afghanistan leads the head to head in the ODI format against the Windies. The two teams faced off in five ODI matches with the Afghans winning in three of them. The Caribbean team won one while another game ended in a washout.


6 – Windies have lost six matches in this tournament; the most in a single edition of World Cup and the 3rd time that Windies lost as many as six matches in an ODI series/tournament. They lost seven matches during the 2001 Tri-Series in Australia and six during the 7-match ODI series against South Africa in 1999.


7 – Mujeeb Ur Rahman took seven wickets in the two ODIs he played against the Windies. He averaged 10.85 with the ball and got the wicket of Chris Gayle in both games.


8 – Number of matches Afghanistan lost in this tournament; the most by any team in a single edition of World Cup. Only two teams have lost as many as nine games in a single ODI series/tournament – 9 by Australia in the 1981/82 Benson & Hedges WSC while Sri Lanka also lost nine in the 1986 Benson & Hedges WSC.


9.75 – Rashid Khan’s bowling average in ODIs against the Windies. In four ODI innings against the Caribbean team, Rashid bagged 12 wickets including his career-best of 7/18 during the 2017 tour of Windies.


388 – Shai Hope has scored 388 runs in his last ten ODI innings with help of four half-centuries. Against Bangladesh, he scored 257 runs in three innings with three fifties. In the remaining seven knocks against the other sides, Hope managed only 131 runs with a best score of 68.


10331 – Chris Gayle, at 10331 runs, require 18 more runs to become the leading run-getter for the Windies in ODI cricket by surpassing Brian Lara’s 10348 runs. Gayle got to score 20 more runs for going past Lara’s ODI tally which includes 57 runs in four ODIs for World XI. Gayle also scored 55 runs from three games for the World XI.
