Shahzada TV | News Desk | Nicholas Pooran, the white-ball captain for the West Indies, has urged his team to play with more fight and game awareness no matter the circumstances after they were recently swept by Bangladesh in Providence.
“We as a group believed that certain factors were beyond your control during international cricket games at 9.30 [am]. The biggest lesson for us, in my opinion, was that we can battle in any circumstance “On the eve of the first ODI of the series against India, Pooran stated.
We as players need to analyze fairly rapidly and realize that if something is tough for us, it’s also difficult for the opposition. We need to keep going as long as we can as a batting group in difficult situations and circumstances, and we need to think that what we have is respectable and offers us a chance in the game.
The most we can expect from ourselves is that. Although the results weren’t in our favor, as a new group this is our task. I believe Guyana was tough for us, but we still learned a lot there as a group coming from Pakistan as well.
The challenge will only get stiffer against India although the visitors are missing several of their frontline players, but Pooran embraced it and lauded his team for their willingness to learn from the errors made against Bangladesh.
I usually remind the lads no tale ever begins nicely, and that is how it has been for us in ODI cricket. “However, I have faith in the men, our collective talent, and the men’s willingness to pick up new skills. Everyone is seeking improvement and has inquiries.
I appreciate the men so far coming from the Bangladesh series because they are all asking how to grow better. We’re just hoping that things work out for us because the players have been working so hard, and we’re hoping that this India series will right some wrongs.”
Although the next series against India is not a Super League match and West Indies has recently lost one ODI match after another, Pooran stated that they have plenty of desire to turn things around.
“I think all the players are motivated and everyone wants to do well, which is really fantastic to see,” he said. “I don’t have to do too much, to be honest. We just need to have really good conversations and believe in each other and continue to back our skills. I think the guys are gelling really well at the moment.” “Not only from my side but from a coaching side as well, our focus is to balance ODI cricket between T20 cricket and Test cricket,” Pooran said. “I think we haven’t found the right template yet and everyone can see that. We’re not batting 50 overs and that’s the first box we want to tick.
