Having elected to field after winning the toss, West Indies made full use of overcast conditions as Thomas took four wickets for 27 runs, while captain Holder (3-42) and the returning Andre Russell (2-4) completed the job.
Lowest scores for Pakistan in World Cup:
74 vs England Adelaide 1992
105 vs West Indies Nottingham 2019*
132 vs Australia Lord’s 1999
132 vs Ireland Kingston 2007
134 vs England Cape Town 2003
The in-form Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam got off to solid starts but were both dismissed for 22, sparking a middle order collapse that the former champions did not recover from.
Pakistan were bowled out in 21.4 overs for their lowest World Cup total since a paltry 74 against England at Adelaide in 1992, the year Imran Khan’s team went on to lift their only 50-overs crown.
