Coach bemoans West Indies batting approach in Dubai conditions

first_img “(They are) quality spin bowlers on pitches they are used to bowling on and they did a very good job. We didn’t find a way with the bat to combat that. It certainly wasn’t through a lack of effort by the players; they just found it very difficult. It’s disappointing.” Radford was quick to praise Pakistan’s batting effort, which saw them tally 160 for four off their 20 overs after being sent in. “Pakistan have bowled well and have actually fielded very well, and when they batted, they showed that on a slow wicket and a big outfield, it’s actually all about knocking the ball into gaps and doing a lot of running,” he explained. “They ran a lot of twos, which I think really stretched us, and I don’t think it was ever going to be a game for lots of boundaries because I don’t think it was that type of surface or that type of outfield.” DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC): Batting coach Toby Radford said West Indies once again failed to adjust to conditions in Saturday night’s second Twenty20 International and need to find answers ahead of the final game tomorrow. For the second straight day, the reigning World champions found themselves completely outclassed by Pakistan, this time slumping to a 16-run defeat to surrender the three-match series. Radford said his side’s batting performance had once again been “disappointing”, pointing out that it followed a similar trend to Friday’s nine-wicket loss in the opening game. “The first power play today and yesterday were similar. (We were) five (wickets) down yesterday, three down in the first six (overs) today, and I think the big difference, when you looked at Pakistan in the first six, (is that) they were 38 for one (in the opening game) and 39 for one (today),” said the Englishman, who joined the side just before the series. “Clearly, the game plan from Pakistan has been to have slow wickets, bowl a lot of spin and have very big boundaries. The West Indies are known to be a big six-hitting and boundary-hitting side and normally play on slightly quicker pitches and slightly smaller outfields, but it is up to us to find a way around that.” Chasing 161 for victory at the Dubai International Stadium in order to level the series, West Indies never got going, slumping to 19 for three in the sixth over and then 89 for seven in the 16th. “I thought Sohail Tanvir bowled very well with the new ball tonight and picked up two wickets. I thought yesterday Imad (Wasim) picking up five wickets was very, very good,” Radford said about the first game on Friday. GOOD JOBlast_img read more
