West Indies will start their world cup 2019 from Tomorrow against Pakistan. Windies won the world cup twice in 1975 and 1979. But after that, they could not win the world cup. So this time West Indies can try to win the CWC 2019.
West Indian player Carlos Brathwaite was quoted as saying by the ICC,
“It would be great if we could create our own legacy. Obviously, Chris has done that in the Test and ODI format, and then is ‘Universe Boss’ in T20 as well. The young guys like Shai Hope are aspiring to reach the heights that Chris has reached.”
“If we can win, we can be looked upon in the way that the team of ‘75 and ‘79 was looked upon, as heroes of sorts. Once we do the things we’re supposed to do, often we should go far enough in the tournament. It’s one of our better chances in the last 40 years or so to win the World Cup, so it’s time for us to show up and show off,” Carlos Brathwaite added.
“On our day, in semi-finals and finals, we have some guys who can win it on their own. I don’t think there will be much stymying the flow of runs in this competition. Everyone will be looking for 320 plus, so it’s about getting wickets,” he further added.
“We’ve got two guys that bowl 90mph, a left-hander that swings it back, someone who is very skillful in [Kemar] Roachy and in Jase [Holder] he presents something different, bounce and movement, with the new ball as well, so the bowling attack is covered. We’ve also got two spinners, so it’s just about coming together and finding a way to attack,” Carlos Brathwaite Signed off.
