After losing the match, West Indian skipper said,

“Think its a bit of both (batting and bowling). We were around 40-50 runs short; the wicket played well the entire day just that we didn’t get enough runs. Having said that, we could have been a lot more disciplined with the ball, and we let ourselves down in the field as well. It would have been a little challenging in the first ten overs after losing the toss and being asked to bat. Having said that, we got through the first ten overs reasonably well. We were in a situation where we just didn’t get the momentum as we probably should in the middle-overs with the bat and we had too much to do in the back-end.”

“As I said before if you score 320 here, you gotta fight really hard in the field to defend it. We didn’t get wickets, and also we let one or two chances slip. We tried to hit the top of the stumps but didn’t do it consistently. There is no excuse. We should have been a lot more disciplined. We have got other games to play and from here on everything is virtually a final for us and we have to be more clinical.”

West Indies will face New Zealand in their next world cup 209 game on June 22.
