The West Indies have it all to do! After losing the First Test in a spectacular epic fashion, they have to improve on their performance if they are to get anything in their second game of the series against India on July 30 at 11am EST. Can they do it? Watch with us to find out!
The first match between these two giants of the cricket game ended in a HUGE victory for India, who defeated their rivals by an innings and 92 runs. It was an absolute thrashing, and the Windies couldn’t deal with what the tourists were throwing at them. It was just too much!
But now, for the match in Jamaica, the Windies have called up Antiguan fast bowler Alzarri Jospeh, 19, a rookie who has plenty of potential but has only played 12 matches at the senior level. He has amassed some incredible figures during that time, including 24 wickets in 8 first-class matches at an average of just 24.45 runs. That’s a very economic rate for a young bowler to have.
Despite their crushing defeat, West Indies coach Bill Simmons has urged his troops not to be too disheartened and is doing his to rally his team. “We know we didn’t play well and I think that is the good thing about it. If we had played well and we got beaten like that, then something would be wrong,” he told the Jamaica Observer. “So, we didn’t play well and we just have to make sure that we hit our straps when we are here.”
