Coach disappointed with poor batting
BARBADOS’ coach Hendy Springer cannot hide his disappointment over “downright poor” batting that denied the island the first first-class cricket title in five years.
In assessing the failed effort in the WICB regional four-day final, when Barbados made a mountain of a target of 230 and folded for 90 against Jamaica at Sabina Park Monday, Springer was frank when the team returned home yesterday.
“We didn’t get off to a good start. We didn’t gather any momentum. From then, it was just a straight slide downhill,” the coach told NATIONSPORT.
“Some of the guys would have said they got one or two harsh decisions. That maybe so, but that doesn’t take away from the downright poor batting that we displayed in the last innings.
“The pitch was a better one than when we played the first game. It was a very, very good pitch and 90 is not a reflection of the pitch.”
