The trophy is shared 2-2 and Holder and Morgan smile. The former has plenty to take from this series but the latter, hmmm... One of the favourites for the World Cup? That tag has taken a serious beating. Questioned by the number 9 team in the world. He will hope that the Brits do well in the T20I format, which arguably, is the best for the Windies. Promises to be a cracker. Join us on Friday, Match 5, 2019 at 4 pm local (2000 GMT) for the first of a 3-match T20I series, at this very same venue in St. Lucia. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
Victorious Windies captain, Jason Holder, is proud of his unit. Says that it was tough on the boys after the first game but they did not lose hope. is happy with the intent they showed in spite of the demoralizing loss in the previous ODI. On Gayle, Holder says that Chris is Chris but the main focus was on the team showing positive intent with the bat and attacking intent with the ball. On the series overall, Jason says that there are still things to be learnt and this final ODI was a good learner. He observes that the middle overs are the key where England score big and today, they concentrated on restricting the boundaries and the Windies were successful. On the surface, Holder says that it was a bouncy wicket but they still needed to put it in the right areas. Credits England for starting off well in Powerplay 1 but then praises Thomas and Nurse for shutting it down in the middle overs.
424 runs, 13 sixes. Universe Boss, CHRIS GAYLE, IS THE MAN OF THE SERIES. Take a bow. Smiles and says that he is only 39. Asks the youngsters across the world - what are they doing? Then becomes serious and praises the bowlers and Oshane Thomas for setting up the win. On the run chase, Gayle says that the 16-run opening over gave Windies plenty of momentum and he took it from there. Praises England for their bowling throughout the series, especially Mark Wood, for sheer pace. On his own self, whether this is the final innings in the Caribbean, Gayle says that he was not sure, but if this is the last, he wanted to go out with a bang. Adds further that this series status is a big boost for the Windies. They wanted to go into the World Cup with a bit of respect and he says that if the bowling attack performs like this in England, they can make a few heads turn.
OSHANE THOMAS HAS BEEN NAMED THE MAN OF THE MATCH FOR HIS FIFER. Seems to be a shy guy. Politely says that the wicket seemed to have a lot for the fast bowlers and he only bowled it in the right areas. On learning at the international stage, Thomas says that the experience was great, after featuring mainly in the CPL.
Eoin Morgan admits that England struggled to bat throughout their innings on a bouncy track. Adds that they were way off the board and with the ball, were all over the place. Bluntly says that they did not deserve to win. Says that nothing is easy and England need to find out ways to score on challenging tracks and hang out in the middle. Stresses that the unit has done it on slower and lower wickets but need to now do it in conditions and tracks like these. On the series overall, Morgan states that England have competed well but have not been at their best. Hence, he feels that 2-2 is a fair reflection of how the series unfolded. Ends by saying that today's performance was disappointing but he will take plenty of positives from the series.
Clearly a day to forget for England. Eoin Morgan had said that they would be tested in this ODI series and they have been. But they have been blown away, to be honest, by one man. Today though, it was more due to the disciplined bowling by the Windies. It will be interesting to see what Morgan says in the presentation. Stay tuned...
Earlier, after electing to bowl, Windies were excellent with the ball. They did not bowl loose stuff, which meant the visitors had to manufacture their shots. Batting was by no means easy but the technique against short stuff was found wanting. Not one of the top 7 had answers to the hurried bouncers. They tried to see off the passage of play but once Stokes was dismissed, the innings was ushered into completion.
The Caribbean is dancing in Gayle's glory. Let us join them. Christopher Henry Gayle. Retiring post the World Cup? Why? 39 sixes in a 5-match ODI series with one game less. The Universe Boss still has plenty of fuel left in the tank. His 27-ball 77 meant that the others did not have to do much and England were given a proper pasting. The number 1 ranked ODI side were asked to fetch the leather and plenty of dirty linen were washed. Battered and hammered. Beaten black and blue.
We have just gone 5 minutes post the scheduled innings break, that is how quickly the match has enfolded. Those tuning in now might just read Gayle's fastest ODI Fifty but there was a team which batted before, toiled for 28 overs but mustered only 113. Only to see that being kicked off in not even half of the overs they faced.
What a way to make a statement. All done, all dusted. Start the car! All over in 40.2 overs. This has been one cracking T20. Oops... was it an ODI? My word. It has been a Chris Gayle show again but do not forget who set it up in the first place.
