  1. Post update

    I am so looking forward to seeing Andre Russell and Shimron Hetmyer in action today. West Indies are terrific fun to watch.

  2. Form guide

    West Indies are two-time world champions in this format, having lifted the trophy in 1975 and 1979.

    They thumped 421 runs against New Zealand in their final warm-up, going on to win by 91 runs, but they’ve won just four of their nine one-day matches this year.

    Pakistan won the Champions Trophy in England in 2017 and they were World Cup winners back in 1992.

    They’ve been in England longer than most teams, having just played a one-day series against the top-ranked side, which they lost 4-0.

    In fact, they’re on a 10-match losing streak – and they lost their final warm-up match against Afghanistan just a few days ago.

    This lot are already making a fair bit of noise at Trent Bridge. It may be a competition between them and Pakistan fans’ horns. There are plenty of those on sale outside the ground

  5. Teams

    Pakistan XI: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam, Haris Sohail, Sarfaraz Ahmed, Mohammad Hafeez, Imad Wasim, Shadab Khan, Hassan Ali, Wahab Riaz, Mohammad Amir.

    West Indies XI: Chris Gayle, Shai Hope, Darren Bravo, Nicholas Pooran, Shimron Hetmyer, Jason Holder, Andre Russell, Carlos Brathwaite, Ashley Nurse, Sheldon Cottrell, Oshane Thomas.

  6. Post update

    Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed: “We wanted to bowl first because of the overcast conditions and a bit of moisture, but it will be a good batting pitch.”

  7. Post update

    West Indies captain Jason Holder: “I don’t think the conditions will change much. Hopefully we can use the overhead conditions to get some early wickets. We’ve had a good camp and got a lot out of our warm-up games.”

  8. Post update

    Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz are back for Pakistan.

    Evin Lewis and Shannon Gabriel aren’t fit for West Indies, but Andre Russell is there.

  9. BreakingWest Indies win toss & bowl

    And it’s Jason Holder that calls correctly.

  10. Toss time

    Oh, the height difference between Jason Holder (six foot six) and Sarfaraz Ahmed (five foot six) is incredibly pleasing.

    BBC Sport at Trent Bridge

    There were plenty of fans wearing shirts of both teams on my train to Nottingham this morning. Only heard one player mentioned though – Jofra Archer. His rapid spell yesterday has got everyone talking.

  15. What’s on today?

    Sixth-ranked Pakistan take on West Indies at Trent Bridge.

    It’s usually a high scoring ground, with small boundaries, and Chris Gayle and Babar Azam are at the top of the respective batting orders.

    Hello, runs.
