Share

<p><strong>Barbados:</strong> The Windies cricket team may have been disappointed not to make it to the ODI World Cup, but they must have been encouraged by their performance against England yesterday in Barbados. With a four-wicket victory against England, the Windies squad took a 1-0 series lead. Although the hosts are off to a strong start, Andre Russell deserves all the credit for masterminding the victory. Making a reappearance for the national squad, the all-rounder showed skill with the bat and the ball.</p>

<p>After capturing three wickets, Russell struck a stunning 14-ball 29* to put his team ahead. Russell, who won player of the match, said, “Life is so funny,” after the game. He also said that he has been dreaming of being named player of the match ever since he received a call to play for the national team.</p>
<p>“Life is really really funny.” Though I wasn’t sure how it would have happened, I had been dreaming of receiving a MoM award when I received a call-up two weeks before. You’ll need to bowl a lot more cutters since the wicket has been two-paced and up-and-down since the CPL season. At the post-game press conference, Russell said, “Runs were scored when there was pace early in their innings.”</p>
<p>“We played excellent bowling in the second half. It was all about batting in pairs because, since he and Powell both had power, we knew that if we batted deep, we could win the game,” he said.</p>
