Team West Indies are the underdogs of World Cup 2019 because of their destructive batting line-up.

Champions Trophy 2017 winner Pakistan have lost their form in ODI format in recent past losing ten consecutive encounters. Still, They have a well-balanced squad and cannot be underrated.

The spin duo of Imad Wasim and Shadab Khan along with Wahab Riaz, Amir, Hasan Ali and Shaheen Afridi can also create threat for any batting line-up.
They lost their only warm-up match against Afghanistan by 3 wickets.
