T20 WC 2022: West Indies were hurt by lack of anchor batter like Marlon Samuels and poor bowling
ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022: West Indies were hurt by lack of anchor batter like Marlon Samuels and poor bowling. West Indies should look forward to build a team for 2024 T20 World Cup happening in Caribbean and USA.
As the ball was creamed over covers for a boundary, Lorcan Tucker carried Ireland to the Super 12 stage of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 with twice champions in the 2012 and 2016 editions, West Indies being knocked out from the first round of the tournament. If the fact of West Indies needing to play the first round didn’t shock the fans, then their early exit surely did.
With the amount of batting powerhouse that West Indies possess with players like Evin Lewis, Jason Holder and Nicholas Pooran who have the experience of playing all around the world in various leagues, and for a team which offers so much fun and excitement around them, it was nothing short of a real shock.
“A bit surprised to be honest that (West Indies) weren’t able to get over the line against the other teams,” former West Indies T20I captain, Kieron Pollard expressed to i95.5 FM, a Trinidad-based radio station. “But again, that speaks volumes about where our cricket is at the moment; I feel it for the guys because they are the ones who are going to get the bashing and it’s not their fault.”
