West Indies targeting batsmen with bouncers efficiently

The great West Indies cricket team of the 80s is said to be one of the most destructive sides in the history of the game as it was almost impossible for teams to beat them due to their explosive batting and fearsome fast bowling.

The current Caribbean side is also trying to follow in the footsteps of their greats as they have started to utilize short ball as a major weapon against batsmen. According to statistics, their pacers have been most efficient in taking wickets off the short ball in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 as they average 16.81 with that length.

Other top teams which have used the short ball bowling to great effect in the tournament include England (20.35), New Zealand (21.11), Australia (31.23), and Pakistan (36.57)
