    More from Sarfaraz Ahmed: "It was a bad day for us but I'm very confident my team will bounce back."

    "It was good to see Mohammad Amir bowl well, but Chris Gayle knows how to play this type of cricket.

    "The support in England is always excellent so thanks and carry on please."

  3. Post update

    Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed: "If you lose the toss in these conditions, it's tough. Early on we lost so many wickets, that's why we didn't come back into the game.

    "The first half an hour is tricky on this pitch, it wasn't the type of cricket we usually play on a good batting wicket here.

    "We have to play positively. We didn't do well but hopefully we will bounce back.

    "We know West Indies are coming hard with pace bowlers. The first two wickets were very soft but otherwise we didn't play the short ball well."

    Duncan Folkes: You should all put a tenner on Pakistan to win the tournament. I was in Australia for the tournament in 1992 and they were abject, got very lucky (England bowled them out for 70odd and only rain kept them in the cup). They slowly got better and better and then...

  5. Post update

    West Indies are two-time winners of the World Cup - but haven't won it since 1979.

    They beat England in the final that year, at Lord's, with Viv Richards hitting 138 and Joel Garner taking five wickets. What a side!

    Could they do it again?

    The pitches nowadays are batting friendly so most bowlers today prefer to bowl within themselves, especially in ODI cricket. If you get a wicket that has some pace in it, you will see a difference. But I think cricket today is a bit one-sided - too batsman-friendly.

  7. Finish it in style

  8. 'We've come to win the World Cup'

    More from Jason Holder: "Oshane Thomas is a good, young quick, we know he can be expensive at times but he's a genuine wicket taker and that's a gamble worth taking with such high totals you need wickets in one-day cricket.

    "Chris Gayle started us off tremendously and it eases the pressure in a chase like this. I've seen a lot of teams mess up short chases but Chris imposed himself on it.

    "We wanted to start with a win, we've been anxiously waiting for this first game and it's good to get through it.

    "We've definitely come to win this World Cup but I just want us to enjoy our cricket, play fearless cricket and make the fans back home proud."

    Jason HOlder

    Jason Holder speaking to Test Match Special: "It was a good game. I think the bowlers were outstanding today. We kept our foot on the accelerator. We've eased off in the past but it was good to see the killer instinct today.

    "We wanted to be aggressive. It's the nature of our cricket with bat, ball and in the field."

    How is Chris Gayle getting on?: "He's getting on, that's it! Even when he was in pain he was firing. Credit to the way he played."

    And Andre Russell?: "The beauty about this tournament is we have some time in between games. We've got five days so more than enough time to come back."

    West Indies captain Jason Holder: "We got off to a really good start, got new ball wickets, which is what we ask from these guys.

    "Andre Russell is an impact player with the ball and bat, it was good to see him make that impact and he was backed up by Oshane Thomas and Sheldon Cottrell.

    "Andre ran in ran in and gave 100% even if he's not 100% and he showed his impact today.

    "We let teams back into the contest before but we finished them off."

  11. Post update

    Chris Gayle is not too injured, by all accounts. Good news for the tournament.

    That's the fourth shortest completed match, in terms of overs, in World Cup history.

    Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed, speaking to Test Match Special: "Very disappointed at the batting. I was very confident before the match, batting was a key point but we didn't apply it to the short ball.

    "Credit to the West Indian bowlers, they bowled really well. We have to take time if the bowlers are bowling like that. We lose so many wickets and that's why we lost the match."

    There's no better sight in cricket than a great fast bowler versus a great batsman. Sadly it's not there any more.
