On Sunday, the two West Indies players Shai Hope and John Campbell scored the highest ever by making 365 combined in the ODI cricket. Campbell scored 179 whereas Hope smashed 170 in their partnership.
These players made a history in ODI second time by crossing their own individual 150s. Let me tell you that 25-years John Campbell is not part of the World cup plan of West Indies. However, this immense victory and record partnership will make them rethink about it.

Shai Hope is not a regular opener and still he managed to achieve this victory in ODI cricket. They were really close to complete the innings and they could have stayed at the crease for a longer period of time.
West Indies vs Pakistan ODI Record
During the match, they were running short of around 7 runs to make a history in the ODI cricket. If we look back, then West Indies hold for the highest partnership in the World Cup also. The two famous players, Chris Gayle and Marlon Samuels had a great partnership of 372 against Zimbabwe in 2015.
Well on Sunday, 06 May, 2019, Ireland failed to chase the score of 382 by making only 185 and leaving a big difference of 196 runs. Ireland was chasing a massive score and collapsed to 21 for three. Kevin O´Brien made 68 runs and made the West Indians to re-think about the situation. However, West Indies took the charge through their off-spinner Ashley Nurse. He took the 4 for 51 and left Ireland all out at 185.
