Windies need tempo
LONDON – Finding the right tempo will be key to Windies clawing their way back into the five-match One-Day International series against England, head coach Stuart Law said yesterday ahead of the pivotal fourth encounter at the Oval.
The Australian said the Windies were trapped between the Test and Twenty20 formats at the moment and were having difficulty determining the correct pace of the innings.
As a result, they trail 2-0 in the series, having lost the opener at Old Trafford last week Tuesday by seven wickets and the third match in Bristol three days ago by 124 runs. The second fixture at Trent Bridge was rained off last Thursday after only 14 deliveries.
“We’re not quite playing at the tempo that suits one-day cricket. We’re caught between Test cricket and T20 cricket,” Law told reporters. (CMC)
