Estwick said the team needs to find solutions to win more matches
West Indies assistant coach Roddy Estwick said that the team needed to come back stronger and win matches after they lost their match against Bangladesh on Monday by seven wickets.
“We’ve got to come back stronger. We’ve still got four games left in the tournament and we can’t point fingers or apportion blame to anyone,” stated Estwick. “We have to stick together, that’s how good teams pull through. We’ve got to stop looking for excuses and start finding solutions.”
Estwick continued that Bangladesh should be given credit to how well they played each time they went against West Indies.
“Four years ago, everyone was saying how exciting and refreshing West Indies cricket looked,” said Estwick. “Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If we’d bowled spin against Bangladesh, everyone would have said that we should have stuck to our strengths.”
“Four games down the road, it’s the worst tactic in the world. Give Bangladesh credit. They played well and they’re an improving side,” continued Estwick. “They’ve played us now five times in the recent past and have beaten us every time. We just have to go away and put our heads together and find a solution. We’re not down and out yet. We’re going to fight and come back harder.”
West Indies’ next match will be against New Zealand on Saturday at Old Trafford Cricket Ground. Windies currently have +5500 odds to win the entire 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
