Kingstown: Mar 18, 2012

 

The West Indies need to just get their act with the bat together when they take on Australianin the second ODI on Sunday.

 

The hosts have a lot to think about as far as their batting is concerned. While for us, the viewers, it is easy to put it in a single sentence, the coach, skipper and support staff will be racking their brains on how to actually implement that. Their most experienced batsmen, Marlon Samuels and Dwayne Bravo, at one point of time, looked good when they put on a 64 run stand for the fourth wicket.

 

But after that, West Indies lost 5 wickets for 7 runs in the space of half an hour. Pollard and Russel, two highly rated all rounders, failed to step up to the task. Save for a late assault by Sammy, they might have lost by 100 runs. The batsmen lacked application and none of them had any answers to Doherty’s turners.

 

Australia have everything going in their favor. George Bailey, playing in place of Michael Clarke, impressed in his first ODI outing top scoring with 48. His presence in the middle order lent the sort of calm that is usually felt when veterans like Mike Hussey bat and he will gain a lot of confidence from that. Shane Watson and David Warner looked in good nick.

 

Though none of the batsmen really capitalised on good starts, it is unlikely to weigh on their minds. The batsmen found it tough to get going against the wily off-spinner Sunil Narine, but the visitors conceded just one wicket to him. If they can maintain that, the other bowlers will not be that big a menace.

 

Teams:

 

Australia (From): Shane Watson(c), George Bailey, Daniel Christian, Xavier Doherty, Peter Forrest, Ben Hilfenhaus, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Brett Lee, Nathan Lyon, Clint McKay, Peter Nevill, James Pattinson, Matthew Wade(w), David Warner

 

West Indies (From): Darren Sammy(c), Dwayne Bravo, Carlton Baugh(w), Tino Best, Devendra Bishoo, Darren Bravo, Johnson Charles, Sunil Narine, Kieron Pollard, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach, Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels
