Make it three for the #MenInMaroon skipper #JasonHolder Pakistan are 81/8 in the 19th over

Pakistan have been destroyed by the short ball today - and they have just refused to learn. They've attacked roughly half of the short balls they've faced, despite the fact that they've now lost six wickets to those deliveries. Remarkable unwillingness to adapt

Again some history! In 2011 world quarterfinal WI got all out for 112 and Pak won y 10 wickets

Even Viv Richards is shocked by Pak’s performance! he says , "They're much better players than this, I've spent some time with them at the PSL and I'm disappointed with what I'm seeing from Pakistan today"

Why Pakistan why? 104/9 - 21.3 Overs

More sarcastic shouts from Pakistani fans at Trent Bridge was "come on boys let's at least reach 100 ! Anyhow they heard it.

Oshane Thomas gets his fourth and Pakistan are bowled out for 105 ! Khallaaz!
