Hey and welcome to the dwell weblog of the second ODI between Windies and England in Barbados. After greater than 700 runs have been scored within the first sport, the stress will once more be on the bowlers to assist their crew win the conflict. England’s victory within the first match was achieved with such ease, chasing down 360 to win with out breaking a sweat, that it’s the West Indian bowlers who can be feeling the warmth greater than anybody within the lead-up. On Wednesday, their assault regarded one-dimensional, one-paced and with out a lot of a discernible innovative in any respect. Even Oshane Thomas, the Jamaican fast, was made to look pedestrian. And Windies must discover a innovative as a result of containment merely doesn’t work towards this England crew. Wickets are the one technique to cease them. However the place are Windies going to seek out these wickets from?
Their toothlessness with the ball within the first match was not a one-off. Over the previous two years, Windies have taken their wickets at a better common than another ODI crew, conceded the third-most runs per over and have the worst strike charge, 49.1, too. In the identical interval, England have performed 42 ODIs to Windies’ 41, but Eoin Morgan’s males have taken 84 extra wickets. With these kind of figures, it’s little surprise Jason Holder’s males have received simply 11 matches in these two years.
Fixing the issue will not be simple. Kemar Roach is injured and Shannon Gabriel is banned and whereas Devendra Bishoo could also be one of the best wrist-spinner within the Caribbean, his current report in ODI cricket is terrible. On the very least, they might throw in Sheldon Cottrell’s left-arm choice so as to add some selection and the fielders might assist their bowlers out by bettering on an terrible fielding show which CricViz prompt value Windies 50 runs within the first match. Even then, it is uncertain England’s batsmen can be stored up at night time worrying about this Windies bowling assault.
England’s bowlers will not be sleeping so soundly, although after receiving their very own hammering within the first match, significantly Liam Plunkett who conceded 54 runs from his six overs. For all their batting brilliance, England’s bowling assault can nonetheless have the odd off day and Chris Gayle and co put them to the sword at occasions within the first sport, hitting 23 sixes in all, 12 from the bat of Gayle. A few of which may be right down to rustiness – Plunkett and Chris Woakes haven’t performed a lot of late – however the batsmen will not all the time be capable to bail the bowlers out by chasing such massive scores.
