Bats ‘need to step up’
GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Head coach Stuart Law said West Indies were still searching for the ideal batting performance against minnows Afghanistan as they looked to turn the page on a couple of ordinary efforts with a win in today’s series decider.
The Australian conceded that his side had been far from convincing in the two opening matches despite winning the second on Sunday but said the final game presented an opportunity for the Caribbean side’s batsmen to “step up”.
“It’s a fresh pitch. It’s a must-win game for both teams, so exciting cricket to be played,” Law said here.
“Our batters have got to step up. Someone in the top six I would like to see go on and get a hundred. Twenties and 30s aren’t getting us many results that we’d like.” (CMC)
