West Indies cricket discussions

West Indies annihilate England to level ODI series

Postby MarcusGarveyLives » Sun Mar 03, 2019 6:58 am

"After days taking questions about whether ODI cricket had rendered them emasculated, the West Indies bowlers produced a performance brimming with skill and smart thinking."[i]

West Indies thrash woeful England in St Lucia to draw ODI series as visitors are beaten with [i]227
balls to spare

"It is the word that makes South Africa grimace when used to describe their cricket but it is one England must beware when expectations will be at their most intense this summer during the World Cup. For on Saturday, with a series on the line, they again seemed to 'choke.'

That is the only way to describe a truly miserable batting performance that saw England crash to 113 all out in the final one-day international with an array of simply brainless shots on a pitch that offered West Indies pace and, most significantly, extra bounce."


England choke in one-day finale as Chris Gayle smashes 50 in just 19 BALLS to help West Indies tie series with comfortable seven-wicket victory

Summary

* Gayle hits 27-ball 77 after England bowled out for 113
* Only two England batsmen pass 20 - Buttler and Hales (both 23)

The plan of using the ODI side to play T20s hasn't worked....

England 182-6

Billings 87 from 47
Root 55 from 40

Allen 2-29 from 4
Carlos 1-33 from 4
Cottrell 1-28 from 3
McCoy 1-44 from 3

Why on Earth did Holder ask McCoy and not Cottrell to bowl the final over?
:?
West Indies 45 all out!

Gayle 5
Hope 7
Hetmyer 10
Bravo 0
Holder 0
Pooran 1
Allen 1
Carlos 10

Jordan two overs four wickets and six runs!
:o
When Gayle doesn't make runs, the youngsters don't take up the slack. What will they do when the Universe Boss hangs up his gloves?

Campbell 11
Hetmyer 8
Bravo 4
Holder 11
Pooran 11
Allen 7
