West Indies wins only 2 matches of 9 in England

In the West Indies tour of England ending today (September 29, 2017), the West Indies

  1. lost the test series 1-2
  2. won the only T20 international
  3. lost the 5 match ODI 0-4, with one match rained out.  England basically scored at 7 – 8 runs per game in almost every match, something unheard of.  Even when the West Indies scored 359-5 in the 4th ODI, they still lost under the D/L method after giving up many runs to Moeen Ali late before rain ended play.

The negatives (weaknesses) for the West Indies were where England was strong.

  1. Batting was inconsistent
  2. Bowling was TERRIBLE

But there was Hope (Shai Hope particularly, not his brother).

The positives are

  1. Shai Hope, in particular, looked good in parts of the Test matches. Chase showed some grit also.
  2. About 4 players, including Gayle and Samuels, were brought in to play the T20 and all 5 ODIs and, at times, West Indies looked like they could make it a series.

What do you think?
