Reifer banking on bowlers
New interim head coach Floyd Reifer believes that if the West Indies are to win the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup in England, a lot will depend on the performances of the “X factors” and the bowling department.
Speaking at the end of the Windies’ training camp at the University of the West Indies Cave Hill Campus, Reifer said the squad probably contained the largest number of game changers of all of the teams.
Even though he acknowledged the pitches in England were good for batsmen, Reifer said he would be depending heavily on his bowlers to lead the charge.
The West Indies have not won the World Cup in 40 years. The last time they lifted the crown was in 1979 when Clive Lloyd was captain. (CMC)
