Insipid West Indies lose to Bangladesh 3-0 in ODI series: Player Ratings

eee
West Indies had a forgettable ODI series

Opening Batsmen

Kyle Mayers: Kyle Mayers was the first choice opener for West Indies in the series as they continue to look to give him a run in that slot as they try to seal the positions for the ODI World Cup next year. 

The left-handed batter however failed to impress though scoring only 27 runs in the two games he played. He should continue to get chances against India, though we never really know with the West Indies.

Shai Hope: Shai Hope has been the most consistent batsman West Indies have had in recent years in the ODI format and they would have had a lot of hopes on him, considering that most of the other players are inexperienced. 

He ended up having one of his most disappointing runs scoring just 20 runs across three matches. He is a much better player than this though and one can expect him to bounce back in the upcoming series against India.

Top Order

Shamarh Brooks: Shamarh Brooks had a decent outing in the first game and he was the only batter who seemed to have some resistance in him, scoring a patient 33. But things fell off soon and he could only manage a couple of single-digit scores in the next two games,  ending an overall lacklustre campaign.

Brandon King: Brandon King had a poor series, in the first couple of games he walked in with the team needing to rebuild. He did manage to stick around for a bit, but could not add much to the total. In the final game, he was sent out to open in Kyle Mayers’ absence, but it did not make any difference to his fortunes and he ended up averaging just nine with the bat in the series.

Keacy Carty: Keacy Carty walked out in a precarious situation in the only game that he played. From 16 for three, he helped his captain rebuild the innings before throwing away his wicket. Still, he was one of the positives that West Indies would take away from what should be one more series to forget for them. 

Middle Order

Nicholas Pooran: Nicholas Pooran was the only batter to cross the 50+ mark, doing that on one occasion. With the pitch conditions also suiting spinners, we saw the skipper roll his arms over picking up a couple of wickets. The skipper will be pretty disappointed with West Indies’ overall decline in the format over the recent years.

Rovman Powell: Rovman Powell put up a disappointing display against Bangladesh with scores of 9,13 and 18. He will look to put this series behind him and look to make a mark in the upcoming ODI series against India.

Romario Shepherd: Romario Shepherd had a below-average tournament and will need to step up with his performances and these will not be good enough to get him on the plane for the T20 World Cup in Australia and the 50-over one after that in India.

Keemo Paul: Keemo Paul too, like most of his teammates, failed to put on a show in the series. In the two games, he played he did not threaten with either the bat or the ball. 

Bowlers

Gudakesh Motie: Gudakesh Motie had a good start to his ODI career picking up six wickets at an economy of just 3. He was particularly devastating in the last match, making the game go down till the final overs. Being a tailender he did not offer much with the bat. Nevertheless, he seems to be overall a good find for the West Indies.

Akeal Hosein has impressed for West Indies since his debut and is now a key member

Akeal Hosein: Akeal Hosein picked up just a solitary wicket in three matches but was economical throughout. Over the last few years, the Slow left-arm orthodox bowler has gone on to become the frontline spinner for the side and will be a key player in the upcoming tours.

Alzarri Joseph: Alzarri Joseph played the last two games. In the first of those games, he had nothing to bowl at and in the second game, he was generally functional. This series should not make any difference in scale for him either way as it was the batsmen that let them down.

Anderson Phillip: Anderson Phillip played in just one ODI where he scored his career best of 21 not out with the bat. With the ball, he was given only two overs, surprisingly with skipper Nicholas Pooran opting to bowl himself given the slow pitch conditions.Jayden Seales: In the one match Jayden Seales played, he had no impact picking no wickets in the 3.5 overs he bowled. He is among the 13 members named for the first ODI against India and will be hoping to put up a show.
