Not enough magic
Bowling heroics are usually good make-up for batting collapses. But not when it comes to the West Indies.
Not even the heroics of pacer Ravi Rampaul and spinner Devendra Bishoo could save the woeful Windies against Pakistan yesterday.
Rampaul, who appears to have completely recovered from his spate of injury problems, produced an incredible burst of fast bowling at Kensington Oval yesterday to grab four quick wickets in the third Digicel One-day match, and Bishoo bowled tight late in the evening to earn three scalps, but somehow, it still wasn’t enough.
Pakistan, led by man of the match Misbah Ul-Haq, eventually overhauled the West Indies’ paltry score of 171 to win by three wickets and take a comfortable 3-0 series lead heading into Monday’s fourth match at the same venue.
Here, Rampaul is all focus and concentration sending down another thunderbolt against Pakistan at Kensington Oval yesterday.
