Captain Kieron Pollard has hailed elegant stroke-maker Shai Hope and the West Indies team for the strides they have made despite a tenth straight One-Day International series defeat to India on Sunday.
In the latest ICC rankings released yesterday, Hope moved into the top 10 of the One-Day batting rankings for the first time, following his heavy scoring against India, who won the series 2-1.
The 26-year-old opener jumped five spots to ninth position, to be the highest placed West Indies batsman.
His upward movement comes on the heels of the three-match series against India, in which he gathered 222 runs, at an average of 111, to top the Caribbean side’s aggregates. (CMC)
