CRICKET: Windies face Pakistan on Sunday

The West Indies are now Christchurch ahead of their second round clash against Pakistan in the ICC Cricket World Cup on Sunday.

Jason Holder’s side was jolted by an excruciating four-wicket loss to Ireland at Nelson on Sunday.

And they will be seeking to revive their campaign when they take on the Pakistanis.

West Indies have been criticised in many quarters for Sunday’s defeat to Ireland and must now win matches to keep alive their chances of securing a quarter final place.

The Caribbean team collapsed to 87 for five before Lendl Simmons on 102 and Darren Sammy on 89 guided them to a total of 304 for seven against Ireland.

However, the Irish chased down their score to win the match quite comfortably.
