West Indies Must Play Tougher

Some progress have been made by the West Indies cricket team in 2012 but the team as a whole will have to play tougher and more skillful cricket. Some players are too tense and they ought to open up and explore in order to lift their game. A perfect example of giving it all and playing to one’s full potential was fast bowler Jino Best who contributed significantly to the team in the test series against Bangladesh. He bowled very quick and with appreciable control. He apparently now learn the tactics and understand the measure need to be applied in taking wickets. Marlon Samuels is another heroic player whom has fully established for greatness for his authoritative roles in his batting. He proved that he is a match winner during the Twenty 20 world cup and also against team Bangladesh during the West Indies test series in that country. Samuels has a fascinating style and a confident approach to his cricket and the other players in the team should get to that confidence level and produce more for the Windies Cricket Team. There is need for some stability in the middle order and players must be in a position to learn quickly the state of the game and what is required of them.
