Cricket news - World Cup head to head: West Indies vs Pakistan

West Indies have a superior head to head record against Pakistan

The West Indies of the old, led by Clive Lloyd, were an unstoppable force but they had to work hard in two semifinal encounters with Pakistan putting up spirited performances. A three-match winning streak was snapped in 1987 when Pakistan secured a narrow one-wicket win thanks to Abdul Qadir's heroics in Lahore. West Indies quickly put that loss behind them by as they secured a comfortable win in Karachi, which was followed by a 10-wicket victory in Melbourne.

Pakistan's first World Cup win against West Indies outside Asia came in 1999 while the teams didn't face each other in 2003. It was an easy win for West Indies at home in the 2007 edition while Pakistan returned the favour with a 10-wicket drubbing of the Caribbean team in 2011. However, West Indies managed to add one more to their wins tally against Pakistan in World Cups, securing a 150-run victory in 2015 to extend their record to 7-3.The West Indies of the old, led by Clive Lloyd, were an unstoppable force but they had to work hard in two semifinal encounters with Pakistan putting up spirited performances.

A last-over humdinger before it was routine

A last-over humdinger before it was routine

Windies, the almighty Windies, were to take on Pakistan in the eighth match of the inaugural edition of the Prudential World Cup in 1975. West Indies had just warmed up with a resounding win against Sri Lanka in their first game, and Pakistan had arrived in Birmingham after being thrashed by Australia in theirs. Nobody gave Pakistan a chance, and it looked like the toss was the only thing Pakistan would win.

Nobody gave Pakistan a chance, and it looked like the toss was the only thing Pakistan would win.

After opting to bat, Pakistan lost Sadiq Mohammad early before Zaheer Abbas walked to the crease and stitched a vital partnership with skipper Majid Khan to set the base. A flurry of half-centuries in the middle-order by Mushtaq Mohammad and Wasim Raja, in addition to Majid, led Pakistan to a more-than-healthy score of 266 for 7 in 60 overs, despite lacking an epiphany by any of the batsmen to go on and score a hundred.

The West Indies, in response, had a torrid start, as their top order consisting of Gordon Greenidge, Roy Fredericks and Alvin Kallicharan was blown away by the crafty Sarfaraz Nawaz and the mighty West Indies were reduced to 36 for 3 with 231 to win. Rohan Kanhai and Clive Lloyd offered some resistance, but there was another mini-collapse as the last of the batsmen collapsed around captain Lloyd, followed by Lloyd himself after he scored his hundred. At 151 for 7, with three wickets in hand and 116 to win, wicketkeeper Deryk Murray (61*) stitched together a 37-run ninth wicket partnership with Vanburn Holder and a scarcely believable 64-run partnership with No. 11 Andy Roberts to lead them to a well-nigh impossible one-wicket victory with two balls to spare. Sarfaraz Nawaz was the Man of the Match for his spell of 12-1-44-4 in a losing cause - and this match went down in history as one of the first ever cliffhangers in limited-overs cricket.

West Indies faced off against Pakistan on June 20th, 1979 in the second semi-final of the 1979 Prudential World Cup, the winner of which would go on to play England in the final at Lord's. Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl on a relatively flat wicket at The Oval, but Greenidge and Desmond Haynes saw off the new-ball threat to put together a solid opening stand of 132 to set the platform. Viv Richards scored a stabilising 42, before Lloyd and Collis King launched a late assault to propel the West Indies to a nearly unchaseable 293 in 60 overs. Skipper Asif Iqbal was expensive in his 11-over spell, conceding 56 runs, but also picking up four important wickets.

The Pakistan innings started on a terrible note, as Michael Holding dismissed Sadiq Mohammad early. However, Zaheer Abbas and Majid Khan gave the West Indies a mighty scare with a mammoth 166-run partnership before they were both snaffled by Colin Croft in an inspired spell of fast bowling. Pakistan's middle order imploded after this, with no one going past 17, courtesy a three-wicket spell by a part-timer Richards, and Andy Roberts who blew away the tail. Pakistan went on to lose the match by 43 runs despite the partnership between Abbas (93) and Majid (81) as West Indies made it to a second consecutive final quite comfortably in the end.

Deja-vu encounter, one World Cup later

Four years and two days after their previous encounter in a World Cup semi-final, Pakistan and West Indies faced off once again with a World Cup final spot at stake against a brand-new force in World Cricket - India. West Indies won the coin toss and opted to bowl on The Oval wicket, backing their fiery bowling unit - Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, Andy Roberts, Joel Garner, and Larry Gomes. Pakistan were blown away, as they crawled their way to 184 for 8 in 60 overs. Mohsin Khan, opening the batting, showed a lot of resistance on his way to a 170-ball 76, but only got support from Imran Khan (17) and Zaheer Abbas (30) at the other end before finally being dismissed having put up a total decent enough total to bowl at.

Rashid Khan and Abdul Qadir did pick up the openers relatively quickly, but a partnership between a sedate Gomes (59* off 100) and a violent Viv Richards (80* off 96) saw the West Indies into a third consecutive World Cup final that was termed as a virtual walkover - but destiny had other plans.

Encore 1975 - Another one-wicket cliffhanger

The 1987 World Cup, being held outside of England for the first time, saw another instance of the Cricket World Cup's most underrated rivalry - Pakistan versus West Indies at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore. And, once again, it was a nail-biter of a contest. West Indies won the toss and elected to bat, and the openers, Phil Simmons and Desmond Haynes, put on 91 runs for the first wicket. Haynes, Simmons, and Richie Richardson, then departed in quick succession courtesy Saleem Jaffar and Tauseef Ahmed before Viv Richards took over with a fluent fifty. After the wicket of Richards, however, the West Indies collapsed to 216 all-out, with Wasim Akram and Imran Khan doing most of the damage with the reverse-swinging old ball against a helpless lower order, as they ended up with two and four wickets respectively.

Pakistan's chase started shakily, as they lost two wickets for 28, before Ramiz Raja and Javed Miandad put on 64 for the third wicket and led Pakistan's recovery. After three more quick wickets, Pakistan were in trouble at 110 for 5; however another rescue effort, led by Saleem Yousuf and Imran, got them to 183 - within 35 runs of the target. Another collapse followed, from 200 for 6 to 203 for 9 and Pakistan were in a great deal of trouble, but a last-wicket partnership between Abdul Qadir and Saleem Jaffar, including a memorable six by the former, led Pakistan to a thrilling one-wicket win, sending the Gaddafi stadium in Lahore into a glorious frenzy.

West Indies avenge Lahore loss in Karachi

West Indies avenge Lahore loss in Karachi

Two weeks after their first encounter at the Gaddafi stadium, the West Indies met Pakistan in Karachi once again, two weeks after their league encounter. With West Indies already out of the tournament, this was always a dead rubber, but the Caribbean team exacted their revenge. After electing to bat on a good Karachi wicket, West Indies lost Phil Simmons early, as he got knocked over by Wasim Akram. Desmond Haynes, then, took a cautious approach and saw off the new ball before Richie Richardson and Viv Richards took over with their audacious strokeplay. They put together 171 for the third wicket to put the West Indies in a commanding position, as Richardson caressed an elegant 110 off 135 balls, supported ably by Richards, who scored 67 off 75. A mini-collapse followed, as was the norm with Pakistan's old-ball skills, and the West Indies ended up with a competitive 258 for 7 after 50 overs.

Pakistan's top-order responded in fine fashion to the chase, as Ramiz Raja notched up a fluent 70, supported by Javed Miandad and Mudassar Nazar. However, after being at a commanding 147 for 2 in the context of the chase, they collapsed, losing their last 8 wickets for 83 runs, courtesy the pace trio of Winston Benjamin, Courtney Walsh and Patrick Patterson as West Indies won comfortably in the end by 28 runs. Richie Richardson was adjudged the Man of the Match for his fluent hundred to lay the foundation for the win, as the West Indies bowed out of the tournament with a consolation triumph, failing to make the knockouts in the fourth edition, after making the final in each of the first three.

A mysteriously sleep-inducing day in Melbourne

On a zombie of a pitch in Melbourne, West Indies captain Richie Richardson curiously elected to bowl, in their first match of the tournament. Pakistan responded in a steady manner as Ramiz Raja essayed a fluent hundred at one end, remaining unbeaten at the end of the innings. At the other end, despite the wickets of Aamer Sohail and Inzamam-ul-Haq, Javed Miandad came in and scored an unbeaten, fluent 57 at a strike-rate of over 90, to help Pakistan post a total of 220 for 2 in 50 overs. Little did they know, that the surface had beaten into a different level of unresponsive. An attack led by Aaqib Javed and Wasim Akram failed to take any wickets, as the openers Desmond Haynes and a rookie by the name of Brian Lara made merry, the latter retiring hurt just before his 100 (on 88*), and letting captain Richardson finish off the game, as the West Indies won a thoroughly one-sided contest by 10 wickets with 19 balls to spare. Lara was awarded the man of the match, as this bore of a contest balanced out the exciting history of this rivalry.

All-round Mahmood leads Pakistan to Bristol triumph

In the opening stages of the 1999 World Cup in the UK, Pakistan and West Indies faced off on a flat Bristol track. The former decided to bat after winning the toss on a relatively dry surface but against the wrath of the all-new Duke ball. Pakistan did not start too well, as Courtney Walsh got rid of the openers, followed by Mervyn Dillon ripping through the middle order. Only Ijaz Ahmed offered any resistance at the top with a 37, and Pakistan were in a mess at 42 for 4 and then 102 for 5 (after losing Ijaz). Azhar Mahmood and Mohammad Yousuf offered some resistance with a 33-run partnership, before the defining stand of the game that yielded 74 runs - between Mahmood and Wasim Akram (a 29-ball 43 at an unprecedented strike-rate of 148) - helped Pakistan post a competitive 229 for 8. The West Indies pacers also struggled for control with the sensitive Dukes ball, conceding 38 wides in the process, which would turn out to be pivotal in the context of the game.

The West Indies continued to lose regular wickets throughout the innings: Ridley Jacobs and Jimmy Adams showed some resistance at the top, but the West Indies batting order imploded around Shivnarine Chanderpaul (77) who was the last man to be dismissed as they lost the game by 27 runs. Mahmood was awarded the Man of the Match for his all-round efforts - three wickets with the ball, and a vital 37 with the bat - that helped Pakistan script their opening victory at the 1999 World Cup.

The atmosphere was electric at Kingston, Jamaica as the West Indies were all set to play their first ever World Cup game at home. After losing Chris Gayle early, Shivnarine Chanderpaul overdid the whole circumspect act, scoring a sluggish 63-ball 19 before Ramnaresh Sarwan, Brian Lara and Marlon Samuels made up for it, as they carried the West Indies to 181 before the last of them (Samuels, 63) was dismissed. Dwayne Smith then scored a 15-ball 32 lower down the order to drive the West Indies to a competitive 241 for 9 in their 50 overs.

Pakistan's chase never took off as they lost three wickets for 39 runs before Mohammad Yousuf and Inzamam-ul-Haq scored a couple of thirties to lead a rescue effort. Smith, however, picked them up in quick succession and left the burden to Shoaib Malik who scored a quick 62 with an imploding line-up at the other end. Malik finally departed for 62, Pakistan's final wicket, as they fell short by 54 runs in a one-sided contest. Smith was awarded the Man of the Match for his all-round show, and set the platform for the West Indies for a potential World Cup dream at home.

A let-down of a knockout

In the most one-sided knockout of all time, West Indies elected to bat against Pakistan in the national stadium in Dhaka, only to collapse dramatically to a 112 all-out, with only Ramnaresh Sarwan and Shivnarine Chanderpaul offering some resistance (in addition to Kemar Roach in the lower order) to get their team to triple digits. The spinners, Saeed Ajmal, Shahid Afridi, and Mohammad Hafeez shared eight wickets between them to strangle the West Indies innings, before their openers Hafeez and Kamran Akmal chased it down in just over 20 overs.

Pakistan cruised to a 10-wicket win in perhaps the most lopsided World Cup knockout game of all time, and perhaps avenging a 10-wicket loss to a mightier West Indies in the 1992 edition of the World Cup. Hafeez was awarded the Man of the Match award for his all-round performance, as Pakistan became the first team to book a spot in the semi-final of the 2011 Cricket World Cup.

Pakistan won the toss and elected to bowl in the encounter against West Indies at the Hagley Oval in the 2015 World Cup, perhaps due to the cloud cover and the mild seaming conditions on offer. After losing Chris Gayle and Dwayne Smith early, the four middle-order batsmen did the bulk of the scoring, including two fifties (Denesh Ramdin and Lendl Simmons) and a 49 (Darren Bravo). With 17 balls to go, Darren Sammy and Andre Russell launched an all-out assault, scoring 51 runs in less than three overs (Russell scored 42 off 13) to propel West Indies past the 300-run mark.

Pakistan's top order was dismantled in the chase of 311, as they collapsed to a jaw-dropping 1-4, courtesy a fiery spell by Jerome Taylor. They were 25 for 5 soon, before Sohaib Maqsood and Umar Akmal scored half-centuries of their own and stitched together an 80-run partnership. This, in addition to Shahid Afridi's cameo of 28, wasn't enough, as Russell, their chief tormentor with the bat, also picked up three wickets on his way to a Man of the match performance to seal Pakistan's fate - a 150-run loss and a serious slide down in the net run-rate.
