West Indies have been knocked out of the World Cup following their thumping 125-run defeat to India in the must-win game. While they still have two games remaining in their tournament campaign, it is the end of the road as far as qualification for the semi-finals is concerned.
It has been a sorry journey for the Caribbean side in a tournament where they strongly started on a winning note against Pakistan, whom they shot out for a pitiable 105 on the board. The following match was also a positive sign for West Indies after they almost pulled off a victory over defending champions Australia.
Since then, West Indies have faltered like a pack of cards and their latest encounter against India sums up the disappointing lack of depth in both the bowling and batting departments. Middle order collapses have been particularly alarming for West Indies and was once again the case against the Indian lineup.
