Posted By:

Christchurch, Feb 21: Pakistan today claimed one of the worst records in One Day International cricket history in the match against West Indies at the ICC World Cup 2015.

Pakistan crashed to second straight loss in Pool B, this time a bigger one than the previous one - by 150 runs. After West Indies scored 310/6 in 50 overs, Pakistan were bundled out for 160. ('All WC matches are fixed')

Golden duck for Younis Khan

In the tournament opener, Pakistan had lost to India by 76 runs. Not only were they humiliated by a big margin today at Hagley Oval ground, their top order crumbled in quick succession for a new low.

Pakistan were reeling at 1/4 in 3.1 overs in the run chase. This is the worst ever score after the fall of 4th wicket. The previous ignominy was held by Canada at 4/4 against Zimbabwe in 2006.

The first wicket for Pakistan was Nasir Jamshed, who fell for a 2-ball duck. Jerome Taylor stuck another blow in the opening over by removing Younis Khan for a golden duck.

From 1/2 in the 1 over, Pakistan slumped further to 1/4 in 3.1 overs as Haris Sohail (0) and Ahmed Shehzad (1) walked back to the pavilion. Taylor took 3 and captain Jason Holder 1.

The score further became 25/5 in 10.3 overs and finally the misery ended at 160 all out in 39 overs.
