West Indian opening batsmen Lendl Simmons and Chris Gayle failed to open their account at Faisalabad in the second match of ODI series against Pakistan. They provided the 25th instance of both the openers dismissed without scoring in the annals of ODIs. It was also the fourth such instance for West Indies. The accompanying table lists all such instances.

Just for record, there have been only two instances in the ODIs when top three batsmen dismissed without scoring. The first one was registered at Birmingham, in June 1983 when first three Pakistan batsmen Mohsin Khan, Mudassar Nazar and Zaheer Abbas went without troubling the scorers. The second instance occurred 14 years later when Aamir Sohail, Zahoor Elahi and Ijaz Ahmed went for nought against Australia at Hobart in January 1997. The accompanying table lists all such instances.
