Stats: Pakistan sets record for worst start in ODI cricket history


  • Pakistan wasn’t able to get over the 6th consecutive World Cup against India and now there is adding more bad news, which the fans of the Pakistan team would never like to hear. The disappointment was already there and against West Indies the Pakistan team could have turned the tables and won their first match off the World Cup 2015. But Pakistani batmen had some other plans in mind. As a result now Pakistan team has created another record which they wouldn’t be very happy off.

    Let’s take a look at the stat before discussing further:

    Not team would like to start off their batting with the scorecard reading 1 run for the loss of 4 wickets in just 4 over’s but Pakistan team did manage to get the worst possible start in ODI cricket thanks ferocious bowling by Jerome Taylor and irresponsible batting by Pakistan. This start also included 3 ducks.

    The earlier record for worst batting start in One Day Internationals was by Ireland when they had lost 4 wickets and scored just 2 runs. Pakistan also holds the 3rd position, which again came against West Indies and this time around the score was 3 runs at the loss of 4 wickets.

    Number 4 on the list is most shocking of all, as it is held by the Australian team against West Indies. Here the West Indian bowlers had brought down the Australian score to 4 runs at the loss of 4 wickets.
