The West Indies is just one game away from ending this disastrous tour of India as they play the Men in Blue for the third and final game of T20 series on November 11 in Chennai.
Last night, they lost the second game by a huge margin of 71 runs and continued their dismal form in the game of the cricket. Talking about the crushing defeat, the West Indies legend Brian Lara said that the Windies came here without any strategy whatsoever and feels that it is embarrassing to see no partnerships being built when the Windies go out to bat.
Lara said, “The West Indies lacked any sort of batting planning since they arrived here in the beginning of October for the two Test matches, five ODIs, and the T20s. You look at the way how these guys are getting out. There are no partnerships being built. I am very disappointed with this team. The way we are losing is unbelievable. Our batting is disorganized. Too much experimentation is being done. One day you have Ramdin opening the inning then Hetmyer comes in the second match. One day Pollard is coming in at number 4 and in the second match, he goes back to number six. They are just throwing ideas out there.”
Lara advised the West Indies coaching staff to apply some planning in the games so that the cricket in the Caribbean can flourish and we can win some games.
He added, “I am really disappointed with the entire group that is playing out there.”
Windies legend also praised the Indian skipper for his amazing performance and said Rohit has already carved his name as one of the best batsmen to have played for India and should be included in any World XI side.
“For me, he is the number one batsman in the world. He is up there with the very best. That is not even a question. Rohit is going to be in any limited overs team that anyone wants to pick and not just India if you want to pick a World XI, Rohit Sharma should always be a part of that team,” Lara concluded.
