BRIDGETOWN, May 1 (BSS/AFP) – Pakistan will demeanour to stay upon lane for a array brush when they face West Indies in a fourth one-day ubiquitous upon Monday during Kensington Oval though skipper Shahid Afridi has warned his organisation over complacency.
The Pakistanis reason an unbeatable 3-0 lead in a five- compare series, following a three-wicket feat final Thursday during a same venue in simply a many rival compare of a series.
The visitors won a initial dual ODIs during a Beausejour Cricket Ground in a beside island of St. Lucia by a large margins of 8 wickets as well as 7 wickets respectively prior to they roughly stumbled in a third match.
Pakistan have simply authorised West Indies initial set upon in any match, as well as used their spin bowling triumvirate of Saeed Ajmal, Mohammad Hafeez as well as captain Shahid Afridi to tie down a home organisation batsmen for low totals prior to endeavour comparatively easy chases.
This regulation roughly backfired upon a Pakistanis in a prior match, heading Afridi to advise his side which they need to equivocate relief in a superfluous matches.
Chasing a medium 172 for feat from a rain-reduced grant of 45 overs, a visitors were left disorder upon 49 for four, following a new-ball shell from Ravi Rampaul, as well as a visitors compulsory a steady, dominant 62 from Misbah-ul-Haq to finish a job, after leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo in jeopardy to wreak late havoc.
“There have been still a small problems with out batting, as well as I’m certain a government as well as coaches will come during us formidable in a meetings,” pronounced Afridi.
“The approach a boys delivered in a array was good, though a batsmen need to outlay a small time in a middle. We all know you done mistakes.”
West Indies have changed to palliate a pressure, recalling Ramnaresh Sarwan to their squad.
Sarwan was a single of 3 comparison batsmen forsaken from a patrol for a initial 3 matches following a World Cup.
But a trashy batting of their replacements — together with maladroit opener Devon Smith, who creates approach for Sarwan, following 3 lbw dismissals for low scores to a off-spin of Hafeez — have stirred a selectors to progress a believe in a side.
Sarwan has played 166 ODIs given his entrance eleven years ago, though he has scored usually a single hundred in a final 5 years — opposite Ireland — as well as managed only 155 runs during 25.83 during a World Cup.
West Indies captain Darren Sammy recognized which his side has a critical problem, as well as hoped they could spin things around in a superfluous matches, quite brazen of a dual Tests which follow a ODI series.
“We as a batting unit, myself included, have to take some-more shortcoming identical to Bishoo does with a ball,” he said.
“It’s about removing a regulation right. We have had great starts, though you haven’t capitalised upon them.
“The approach brazen is to great experience. This organisation is not reduced upon talent, you need to fool around as well as get some-more consistency.”
Pakistan have right away won their final 8 ODIs opposite West Indies widespread over a final 4 years.
