Early return for Windies team
It was an early, even if expected, return to the Caribbean for the West Indies cricket team today following their lukewarm and disappointing performance at the ongoing World Cup in the sub continent which saw their limp elimination at the quarterfinals stage.
The majority of the players and management returned via the Grantley Adams International Airport yesterday with little fanfare as they were met by liaison officer, Leslie Reifer and second vice-president of the Barbados Cricket Association, Wendell Kellman.
The Windies captain indicated that his role was no burden on his batting or bowling since he was happy captaining the regional team.
“During my captaincy I believe that we have been using the correct on-field tactics and we have bowled out teams four or five times. It is just that we have not been scoring the runs. Before the upcoming series we have to get in the right frame of mind and we have to prepare ourselves technically to score the needed totals to compete,” Sammy said. (KB)
