Default WI looking at a Whitewash!

I'm glad I didn't wake out last night to watch this match. I was right that we were going down 2-0 in that match last night and it came to fruition after watching the results on cricinfo.

The way WI has played the first 2 ODI against Bangladesh with a huge victory in both games means that you guys have a chance to whitewash a team above you guys in rankings. Go for it. WI is not looking to make more than 200 runs in any ODI game since most of our guys cannot play spin.

You are being too optimistic.....:We won't yet guarantee that...Lets first, confirm the series if we can. Dhaka might just be a different story...

This is reminding me of the domestic ODI tournament that WI have every year. The Super 50 tournament, most games teams hardly made more than 200 runs in 50 overs.

http://www.espncricinfo.com/west-ind...es/532716.html

Again the spinners in the Caribbean dominated in this tournament. This tournament has the same WI players facing each other playing for their respective teams.

He is trying to jinx us!! GET EM!!

On serious note, I hope Mushy and co are looking for a series win first before going that far. First goal would be keep up the same intensity in Dhaka. After 3-0 we can think about that. Gayle alone can bounce back any time and make it 2-2. So just stay put.

With dominant performances I would say a whitewash is very possible, if you guys were not that dominant I wouldn't be quick to say it but this is really looking like it so far.

Dhaka pitch doesn't assist spinners that much . The team that bats better wins . If Gayle has his day , there is every chance WI can come back in this series. So , We have to first target winning the next match and then concentrate on a potential white wash which I reckon is highly unlikely. West Indies will get their act together at some point.

We have to play really well in Dhaka to ensure a series win. This WI team didn't play much at SANS and hence collapsed to spin. But, guys like Gayle, Samuels, Russell etc played enough matches at the SBNCS and performed well. So, fingers crossed. Hope both the bowling & batting department clicks together for the remainder of the series.

The series hasn't been decided yet. So thinking of any wash is premature. Pull the chain, someone. Stop this train right here.

Let us take it one match at a time or rather one ball at a time.

The pitch doesn't need to turn, we have way too many guys in our team who likes to play pace bowling where the ball comes on to the bat nicely so they can play their shots. Believe me if we were probably playing AUS or NZ on this same pitch the result would have been in West Indies favor 2-0 since they mostly have pace bowlers.

A realistic chance is to win the series at best IMHO.

WI is a very strong team and can bounce back in Dhaka, never know.

"We can't play spin" but yet we declared twice on Bangladesh in the test series while scoring over 500 and also our batsmen got SEVEN tons including two doubles!! ..but yeah i guess that proves "we can't play spin" .

You mean on those flat tracks where even Bangladesh scores 550 and no.10 gets hundreds? Yes they can play spin but WI have struggled in the ODIs so far
