Pressure map: WI vs Pakistan
Srinivas Bhogle | March 14, 2007 20:05 IST
One's first thought was that Pakistan had more than an even chance to chase 242 in their opening World Cup match against West Indies.
That's why they started their innings with a "pressure" of just 80. But as two, and then three, wickets fell before Pakistan got to 40, the tide swung the Caribbean way.
Inzamam and Yousuf looked comfortable during the middle overs even though the pressure was around 130. But then Yousuf fell and Inzamam himself followed soon after.
Shoaib Malik tried his best, but when the PI reaches 160, defeat is usually the most likely outcome.
