St Kitts: Jul 14, 2012

 

West Indies take on New Zealand in the fourth One-Day International at Basseterre, St Kitts on Saturday.

 

New Zealand kept the series alive with an emphatic victory over the hosts in the 3rd ODI at St. Kitts. After looking out of depth in the T20 series and the first two ODIs, the Kiwis suddenly sprung back to life with an all-round performance at Warner Park. Despite managing only 249, an under par score at this ground, the Kiwis came back superbly with the ball to inflict a humiliating 89 run loss for the hosts. They will welcome Brendon McCullum back into the side. Initially rested following a hectic summer, injury troubles forced the team management to call McCullum back into the scheme of things. If that was encouraging, the news that Ross Taylor is almost fit and might even play Saturday’s match would have been music to the ears of the management.

 

The bowling has found its rhythm after a tough time against Gayle and co in the beginning of the tour. They were aided by some rash shots from the batsmen, but credit must be given to the bowlers for outfoxing the batsmen

 

The West Indies juggernaut came to a rude halt at St. Kitts. Chris Gayle, the star performer fell cheaply and the rest of the batting line-up failed to stand up and be counted. The West Indies batting line-up is filled with batsmen of flair and natural attacking ability. On a flat track and short boundaries, the batsmen played one shots too may and contributed to their own downfall. They would look to correct their errors as they seek their first ODI series win under captain Darren Sammy.
