India gunning for T20 revenge

LAUDERHILL, Fort Lauderdale – Head coach Phil Simmons says West Indies will be bracing for a backlash from India stemming from their triumph in the Twenty20 World Cup earlier this year but expects his proven unit of T20 stars to execute when the two-match series bowls off this weekend.

West Indies take on India today at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in the opening T20 before returning to the venue for the second match tomorrow.

The last time the two teams met in a T20 contest was during the T20 World Cup semi-final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai last March, when the Caribbean side spectacularly chased down 193 to win in the last over.

“We prepare for the two days here the same way we would have prepared before. It’s just that India’s team has been together for longer,” Simmons told a media conference here Thursday. (CMC)
