West Indies continue to lick their wounds after a beat down at the hands of Australia Sunday (5 June) in the Tri-Nations Series.
The Caribbean side managed just 116 runs in 32.3 overs to fall to 1-1 in the tournament. Players and coaches were back at training in Guyana 7 June at the National Stadium hoping to change their fortunes going forward. The Windies are off this week and return to the field 13 June versus Australia.
Assistant Coach Roddy Estwick addressed the media to talk about the team’s shortcomings.
“It’s a collective thing,” Estwick said. “We’re all in it together. We wouldn’t say that it’s the bowlers or the batters who have let us down. We haven’t played well as a team in the last game and we know the areas that we need to improve.”
“We need to get partnerships. It’s 50 over cricket, you need to get partnerships. And once we get partnerships and somebody in the top four gets a big score, we’ll turn it around. No doubt about that.”
