Pakistan beat England by 14 runs at Trent Bridge to win for the first time at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019.  Mohammad Hafeez top scored for Pakistan with 84 runs off 62 balls and took the wicket of Eoin Morgan.

Pakistan showed yet again on Monday why it’s always a good idea to predict the unpredictable when it comes to their cricketing fortunes.

As far as the early stages of their ICC Men’s World Cup 2019 campaign are concerned, it has been a case of well beaten one minute, dynamic the next for Sarfaraz Ahmed’s team.

On Friday, Pakistan had no answer to a fearsome barrage of short-pitched bowling from the West Indies, beaten by seven wickets after being bowled out for 105 in 21.4 overs at Trent Bridge.

Back at the same venue three days later, they made two alterations to the side against England but it was almost as if all 11 players had been changed as the 1992 world champions turned the form book upside down to chalk up a surprise 14-run win over the host nation and tournament favourites.
