Windies Up for the Challenge Ahead of Australia Match

West Indies believes they will have a good match against Australia

West Indies captain Tom Holder said that his team are up for the challenge of a good game with Australia to be held at Trent Bridge today.

“We’re up for the challenge. I think they’re up for the challenge as well. I wouldn’t really get too deep into rivalries,” said Holder. “It’s always been a great rivalry between West Indies and Australia. I think everybody is expecting a really good contest.”

Holder continued that his team wants to remain positive about the ICC Cricket World Cup tournament despite other team’s impressive display of skills.

“We’ve all seen the way world cricket has gone the last two years. There have been some high totals and there has been some aggressive stroke play. We just want to be as positive as we possibly can be,” Holder stated.

The Carribbean team pacers used the short ball expertly that limited Pakistan into only bowling 105 in their first match for the tournament. However, Holder stated that the tactics they will use against Australia will depend on Windies’ batsmen.

“If it’s a situation where we feel a batsman may be susceptible to the short ball, then we’re going to use it,” Holder said, referring to the tactic they used in their previous match with Pakistan. “If it’s a situation where that’s not the case, then we’ll find other alternative. It’s just not stuck on the short ball.”

Holder added that the dimensions of the cricket field does not matter in the game but the skills of the players.

“I always back the guys to go with their strengths first, no matter the dimensions of the ground. I think we’ve just got to hone in on our skills,” he said. “The ground will be one way for both teams. That’s one thing guaranteed. That’s just our plan.”

West Indies currently have the odds of +174 against Australia's -208.
