West Indies defeats Bangladesh by an innings and 219 runs

West Indies defeats Bangladesh by an innings and 219 runs in 1st test in Antigua after drawing 3 test series 1-1 with Sri Lanka.


Banglades: 43 & 144
West Indies: 406

Congratulations to the West Indies. Is this the start of something good or just a fluke? Stay tuned.

Sri Lanka draws test series 1-1 vs West Indies

The West Indies lost a low scoring 3rd test by 4 wickets in the Caribbean to Sri Lanka. In the process, Sri Lanka pulled out an improbable 1-1 series draw.

The WIndies did themselves no favors in the batting arena, scoring a paltry 93 runs in 2nd innings, giving Sri Lanka 144 to win. Sri Lanka lost quick wickets but held on to win by 4 wickets.

I am not sure how to grade this series performance.

What say you, cricket fans?

West Indies wins one, draws 2nd test against Sri Lanka
June 18, 2018

West Indies won the first test match convincingly but struggled against Sri Lanka in the 2nd test match which ended today. In the second test, after 3 days, the West Indies seemed like they were on their way to winning and go up 2-0.  However, day 4 belonged to the Sri Lankans who ultimately made it seem like they could draw the match OR even win it… Early this morning, the last (5th) day, however, the West Indies dismissed Sri Lanka’s last two batsmen, leaving the West Indies 296 runs to win in approximately 90 overs.  West Indies lost wickets early but hung on to a draw after losing 5 wickets.

With the 3rd and final test coming up, West Indies can finally win a test series after a long long time by drawing or winning.

What will they do?

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.
