Port of Spain:

West Indies skipper Darren Sammy blamed the batsmen for failing to capitalise on a good start after his team succumbed to a seven-wicket defeat against India in the second One-dayer.

Sammy said his batsmen showed intent but could not bat through and eventually fell short by about 30 runs at the Queen's Park Oval here.

"We put ourselves in a good position but we didn't capitalise in the end. We were about 30 runs short. We rotated the strike better today, but we didn't get one of the top batsmen to bat through," Sammy said after the match last night.

"We were on the back foot in the latter part of the overs, losing wickets at regular intervals. The intent from the batsmen was good initially.

"Samuels has been out for a while, but we saw how well he was batting.
