West Indies A confident of victory in final ODI
Published on September 19, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

BENGALURU, India -- West Indies A team will enter the third and final 50-over match full of confidence as they face India A in the series-decider on Thursday (11:30 pm Wednesday Eastern Caribbean Time/10:30 pm Jamaica Time).

Captain Kieran Powell said that after the defeat in the opening match on Sunday, his team regrouped and had a superb win in the second match on Tuesday.

Describing this win as a “massive boost”, Powell said Windies A will be looking to repeat the good things in the crucial third contest at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium.

“We had some rain during our training session today but we managed to get in some work so we are ready for the match. We are playing on the same square so we are quite familiar with the conditions and what to expect,” Powell said after Wednesday’s training session.

“We were off to a tough start in the opening match but we felt we recovered and rebounded well and played really well to win the second match and get back level in the series. We were excellent in all three departments.”

He added: “We executed really well in the last match. The aim now is to repeat that kind of performance ... once we repeat and win the match... win the series... which would be a great achievement to beat India A in India.”

In the second match left-hander Jonathan Carter made a match-winning century as the Windies posted a winning score of 279-6 off 50 overs. That performance was backed up by a four-wicket haul from fast bowler Miguel Cummins.

“Carter came in and played exceptionally well after missing the first match. We batted quite well in partnerships and posted a score we knew we could defend,” Powell noted.

“Cummins has been leading the attack. He is a quick learner and has adjusted really well to the conditions here.”

Windies A lost the tour opener by 77 runs before rebounding to win by 55 runs in the second game, to leave the series evenly poised.
