West Indies Captain Jason Holder has urged his players who were booted out of the Tri-Nation Series to use the disappointment as time for personal reflection as they tried to regroup.
Needing to beat Zimbabwe in the recent final against Sri Lanka, West Indies tied their second game against Zimbabwe by five runs under the Duck/Lewis method, to see their challenge ended at the Queen’s Sports Club in Zimbabwe.
The regional team started the tournament with a convincing win over Sri Lanka but tied their second game and lost their third to Sri Lanka by a single run before rain and carelessness ensured their demise in their final match.
Holder said Zimbabwe got too many runs and the players did not bat smart enough in the situation, “we lost wickets at crucial stages.”
He said while he thought the game could have continued amidst the steady drizzles, he accepted the umpires decision to call off play.
Sri Lanka beat Zimbabwe to win the Tri-Nation Series in the final game.
