Poor batting has highlighted the West Indies ODI innings so far in ODIs this year, and there were no exception against limited overs powerhouse and World Cup 2011 champions, India. West Indies have failed to score over 240 in each of the 3 ODI matches and India has made them pay. Not known for a particularly strong bowling attack, India made the West Indian batsmen look ordinary or sub-par at times, with one or two exception.
Now that India has won the series 3-0, West Indies now play the remaining for pride to avoid the whitewash. Gayle meets with the WI Cricket Board (WICB) next week, but won’t be ready for the next ODI even if they have an amicable end to the “feud” and decide to include the hardest-hitting batsman on any team today.
Sammy, the captain, has failed in 2 of 3 innings as a batsman. Samuels hasn’t impressed, Pollard has been the usual Pollard ( the one who people keep wondering WHY the selectors keep including him on the ODIs when he continues to fail as both bowler and batsman). But, there’s always tomorrow, I guess.
