Windies crisis talks


Share post:

MANCHESTER – West Indies are hoping “frank discussions” will trigger the turnaround in form necessary to upset unbeaten New Zealand in today’s critical encounter at Old Trafford, and keep alive their already fading hopes of reaching the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup.

The Caribbean side have managed only a single win in five outings and with just three points  in their column and four games left in their campaign, a positive result against New Zealand has now become imperative if they are to avoid early elimination.

And captain Jason Holder told reporters here yesterday the significance of the contest was not lost on the team, pointing out they were focussing on improving their execution following their last defeat against Bangladesh on Monday in Taunton.

“I think we still have a possible chance to qualify for the semi-finals, but we’ve just got to take it game by game,” said Holder. (CMC)
