WI aim for ‘perfect game’
ROSEAU – West Indies enter the decisive third Test against Pakistan at Windsor Park here today chasing the “perfect cricket game” as they seek to notch their first series win over a higher-ranked side in five years and turn the corner on a worrying trend of results.
A series which started in disappointment with a seven-wicket defeat at Sabina Park last month suddenly took a turn for the better last week when the Windies produced a memorable performance to crush Pakistan by 106 runs at Kensington Oval and level the three-match series 1-1.
And with the hosts on the verge of ending a protracted drought, captain Jason Holder told reporters that rather than feeling pressure, it was critical his side pulled all the various facets of their game together to execute over the next five days.
“There’s no pressure. We’re in a situation where we’ve played some good cricket in this series so far,” a calm Holder said on the eve of the contest, which could be marred by rain as the forecast is for showers throughout the match. (CMC)
