Cricket West Indies (CWI) apologized for the team’s shocking 42-run loss to Scotland in a Group B First Round encounter of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup on Monday at the Bellerive Oval in this city, a rare admission that their squad had let its supporters down.
The Nicolas Pooran-led team’s performance has seriously endangered their prospects of making the Super 12, and in order to proceed to the next stage of the competition, they must win both of their remaining matches against Ireland and Zimbabwe.
A day after Namibia’s T20 World Cup campaign got off to an explosive start with a shocking 55-run victory over Sri Lanka, Scotland pulled off another significant upset by defeating the tournament’s defending champions.
Fans Show their anger
One supporter responded by saying that when you will be eliminated from the World Cup, then u should send apologies, not now, while another said it was “embarrassing” to be referred to as a West Indies fan. Captain & coach were the problems.
One more supporter on Twitter said that appoint a coach from England or Australia & Rovman should be the captain. Nicolas pooran shouldn’t be in the playing 11, since he was out of form for the entirety of the CPL 2022, yet you included him as the Windies captain? Shame, coaching & captaincy was the issue.
West Indies struggled mightily with the bat while attempting to chase down 161, never gaining any rhythm or momentum. Additionally, they were perplexed as to whether to rotate the strike or hit boundaries as Mark Watt and off-spinner Michael Leask (2/14) split five wickets between them and bowled 27 dot balls.
What will be India’s plan?
The outcome might have a significant impact on India’s intentions for the big competition because Group B’s champions will enter Group 2. (India, Pakistan, South Africa, B1, A2). Many people had predicted that the West Indies would be that squad, but today’s outcome may have changed their minds because Scotland appears to be the side that will take the place. Even Zimbabwe and Ireland will bet on their ability to win the group and advance as B1 teams.
On November 6 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG), Squad India, led by Rohit Sharma, will play their last league stage match against the B1 team, and they may be playing for qualification. The India vs. B1 match will be the 2022 T20 World Cup’s final Super 12 match.
