West Indies have a paltry 106 runs to get to secure a win in their opening 2019 Cricket World Cup clash against Pakistan at Trent Bridge, after a strong bowling performance. 

World Cup debutant Oshane Thomas took 4 for 27 with captain Jason Holder (3-42) and Andre Russell (2-4) adding to the onslaught, to bundle out the Pakistanis for 105 all out off 21.4 overs. 

Only two Pakistan batsmen managed to get into double figures, as Fakhar Zaman and Babar Azam both managed 22 against an attack, which featured a shower of short-balls from the West Indies bowlers.
