Carlos Brathwaite got out in an unlucky way


Yesterday, Sri Lanka beat West Indies in a close encounter. Both the team have out from the semis race. Sri Lanka have played 8 matches so far in the world cup 2019 and won 3 matches out of them and two matches washed out due to rain. They are standing at the 6th position in the points table with 8 points. If Sri Lanka want to qualify in the semis, they need to win their last group stage match against India on July 6 and also hope that other matches result gone in their favor. West Indies have knocked out from the semi race.

Yesterday, during the Windies batting, Carlos Brathwaite out in an unlucky way, no one can want to out like this. Nicholas Pooran played a state drive, but the ball hit the not striker stump and Carlos Brathwaite out from the crease so he can out because before the ball touched the stump bowler contacts them.

After Lossing the match, Windies skipper Jason Holder said,

“Probably, a bit slow off the blocks. Sloppy on the field and gave away a few extra runs. In a format like this, these things matter. You’ve got to be better than that. I thought it was above-par. Was a free-scoring wicket, was a bit slow but still was a good track for strokeplay. Fernando played well early on and Pooran also played well. Just needed to spend some time in the middle and it got easier.”

“I thought we pulled things back well at the end, but our fielding gave them 30-40 runs extra. We were always backing ourselves to get across the line. I got into a really good position but then threw it away. That run out was crucial, as was Pooran’s wicket. Maybe we could have taken it deeper. Definitely promising (to see talents like Pooran emerging) to see them play such fearless cricket. Just need to win (the final game) and end on a high.”
