Despite a promising start to the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, West Indies journey in the mega-event was dented with crucial losses as it now depends on a lot of ifs and buts. The Caribbean boys had their chances but they failed to seize the pressure moments which landed them in trouble.
For this reason, former West Indian captain and one of best ever batters to grace the game, Vivian Richards expressed displeasure on the bunch adopting a unidimensional approach. The 67-year old opined that the team must come up with alternative plans to counter tough situations. Moreover, the Antigua born urged the unit not to lose self-belief and show a lot more intensity on the field.
“They don’t seem to have any planning, where one particular plan isn’t working then you need to opt for plan B, plan C or whatever the case is. We are unidimensional. If short-pitch bowling worked against Pakistan, then it doesn’t mean that it’d guarantee you a victory against all the teams,” said by Richards as he criticized the approach of the national team in the running competition in England and Wales.
