Sure, 39 off 46 may not seem like much. It may actually seem pretty slow-scoring but it needs to be put into context.
They won the game by three runs so you can see how important that knock was. Besides, the whole point of his inclusion was that others could take risks around him and that he was just meant to bat sensibly.
Others such as Nicholas Pooran, who smashed 40 off 22 batting at number seven and was named man of the match.
But as vital as anyone in their narrow win over Bangladesh was Jason Holder. He came in for the injured Oshane Thomas, scored 15 off 5, took a wicket and conceded just 22 runs.
And then he took an excellent catch on the boundary. Had he dropped it and it could have been game over.
Plenty of work still to do. They’ll need to win this one comfortably, win the last one against Australia and then hope England beat South Africa. Even then, it might not be enough.
Abu Dhabi can be made to look like a far trickier wicket than it actually is. While the likes of Bangladesh failed to get anymore than 84, Afghanistan got to 160 and Pakistan hit 189/2.
Having said that, Pakistan found it hard going for the first 10 overs against Namibia and only an excellent cameo of 32 off 16 from Mohammad Hafeez, plus a superb 79 off 50 including 24 off the last over from Mohammad Rizwan got them to such a big total.
It’s 7-7 over the years between the two former World Cup winners. But it’s been all Windies over the past few games, who won six out of the last seven, a good indication of how the Windies have gotten better and better over the last few years (this tournament aside).
And how Sri Lanka are nowhere near the side they were five or six years ago. Back in March of this year, West Indies won 2-1 at home.
West Indies vs Sri Lanka Toss Prediction
Let’s talk West Indies vs Sri Lanka toss winner statistics. The Windies have had the better of things when it comes to the toss, winning 10 out of 14.
They certainly haven’t been fortunate with the toss, this World Cup, which is one of the reasons why they’ve struggled. But their record in this game when it comes to the toss means we have to go with the Windies.
