WI legends slam fast bowlers' poor tactics

For­mer West In­dies fast bowler Joel 'Big Bird' Gar­ner stormed out of the Taunton Coun­ty Ground an an­gry man af­ter the West In­dies' sev­en-wick­et loss to Bangladesh in their lat­est ICC 2019 World Cup match on Mon­day, say­ing the bowlers didn't tar­get the wick­et but the Bangladeshi bats­men.

De­spite tal­ly­ing 321 runs, their high­est to­tal so far in the com­pe­ti­tion, the West In­dies were beat­en all over the ground by Bangladesh all-rounder Shak­ib Al Hasan, who hit an un­beat­en 124 to lead his team to a win with al­most 10 overs to spare.

A bril­liant un­beat­en cen­tu­ry from all­rounder Shak­ib Al Hasan steered Bangladesh to a com­mand­ing sev­en-wick­et vic­to­ry over the West In­dies at Taunton on Mon­day, a re­sult which means the re­gion­al side will now be hard­pressed make it to the next phase of the 2019 ICC World Cup.

Al Hasan hit a mas­ter­ful 124 not out and had an able part­ner in Liton Das as Bangladesh, chas­ing a record 322 for vic­to­ry, got there with al­most 10 overs to spare. This was the sec­ond high­est run chase in World Cup his­to­ry

Root hit 11 fours off 100 balls as Eng­land, chas­ing a mod­est 213 for vic­to­ry, got there with 17 overs to spare to pile on the pres­sure for Windies skip­per Ja­son Hold­er and his team, who will now have to win their re­main­ing five match­es to have a chance of get­ting to the play­off phase.

Brathwaite calls out umpires after ‘dodgy’ decisions

NOT­TING­HAM —West In­dies all-rounder Car­los Brath­waite is frus­trat­ed over the “dodgy” um­pir­ing dur­ing his side's 15-run loss to Aus­tralia and is al­so ques­tion­ing why his team does not get as many lbw de­ci­sions as their op­po­nents.

West In­dies over­turned four calls by the two um­pires in Thurs­day’s match at Trent Bridge, in­clud­ing two in three balls against open­er Chris Gayle in the third over of the in­nings by Aussie pac­er Mitchell Starc.
