BRIDGETOWN: West Indies trainer Phil Simmons has said he wants his team to score a steady 320-330 in the 50-over format.
Simmons’ comments come ahead of the upcoming ODI series with three games against Australia starting this Wednesday in Barbados.
« We’re looking for the way we’ve beaten to continue and improvements need to be made in the middle overs of 20-39, to get from 280-290 to 320-330, which we need against Australia, we have been discussing this since the Sri Lanka series, so now is the time to put it into practice, « ESPNcricinfo quotes Simmons.
» It was great that in the last series the top 3 all hit hundreds and what we are now asking of them is that one of the top 3 carry on until the end so we can get to 320-330, « he added. West Indies beat Australia 4-1 in the recently completed T20I series of five games. Kieron Pollard didn’t play a single game, and Nicholas Pooran took his place at the head of the team.
« The good thing about this series is that different people came out leading in different games. Dre [Russell] finished the first Game, [Dwayne] Bravo took over the cloak when he went to the bat, [Shimron] Hetymer had it, Chris [Gayle] had it in one game, [Sheldon] Cottrell came back in the last two games and has shown what he is doing « said Simmons.
» And Fabian [Allen] showed in South Africa games what he could do later in the innings and how his bowling improved – he was always dynamite on the field – so they did all played their part, « he added.
Australia and West Indies have only played six ODIs since the World Cup Super League started last year. « That’s the only motivation you need, it’s points and it leads to the 2023 World Cup. The Australians won’t be an easy target and will get stronger after losing the T20 series, » said Simmons.
