West Indies pacers expose inept Bangladesh batting

The West Indies bowling was good throughout; the Bangladeshi batting, for the most part, ordinary. The wicket had some grass but in no way was it overly hazardous for batting. It bounced, but the bounce wasn’t alarming. The Dukes ball swung a bit, but that is to be expected and there was no exaggerated movement off the seam.

No one would dare claim that Bangladesh have the strongest batting unit in the game, but surely the likes of Tamim Iqbal, Shakib Al Hasan, Mominul Haque, Mushfiqur Rahim and Mahmudullah are better than this. They are the ones tasked with getting the bulk of the runs for their team, yet they never looked like getting much and even West indies fast bowler Kemar Roach appeared more accomplished when it came his turn to bat.

The West Indies seamers were particularly impressive. As good as they were against Sri Lanka during the recently completed series, they were better against Bangladesh. Gabriel continued his menacing ways, bowling with pace and more accuracy than he had prior to this home season.

Holder really hit his strides during the day/night Sri Lanka game in Barbados and maintained his challenging line and mostly full length in Antigua. His late outswing is both beautiful and deadly, almost like Dale Steyn’s with the new ball, though the South African does it at a much higher velocity.

Miguel Cummins bowled so poorly during the Sri Lanka series that everyone — except the selectors, that is — was convinced he’d lose his place for the Bangladesh series. But he was persisted with and there was marked improvement in his bowling. He did return to his old habit of having a wicket nullified because he overstepped the bowling crease, but his accuracy was better and he was less reluctant to pitch the ball up.

A great display of bowling

Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
