After a 76-run drubbing at the hands of India in their first World Cup match, Pakistan's performance worsened in their second match as they succumbed to a 150-run loss to West Indies. In reply to West Indies' imposing total of 310, Pakistan lost 4 wickets for just one run, breaking Canada's record of worst start ever by a batting side in ODIs, in the process.

Keeping an eye on a quarterfinal berth, West Indies batting first, started cautiously but lost 3 wickets for 167 runs. However, riding on fifties by Denesh Ramdin and Lendl Simmons, the Windies were back on track. But it was Andre Russell's whirlwind knock of 42 off just 13 balls which took West Indies to a healthy total.

However, Pakistan's batting line-up fizzled out without even them even putting up a fight as they were reduced to1/4. Umar Akmal and Sohaib Maqsood tried to fix the damage with their fifties, but little support from the other batsmen saw them ultimately finishing at 160/10, handing the Windies their biggest win against Pakistan in a World Cup match.
