On one side, we have experienced Bangladesh playing test series at their home. On the other hand, we have an inexperienced young Windies team touring Bangladesh. Windies are lacking the services of their experienced players due to issues with the Board. But guess what, Windies stunned Bangladesi Tigers with 2-0 series win in their backyard.
Yes, this young west indies team has shown a lot of grit, courage, and determination to defeat Bangladesh in their den. Though they couldn’t win a single match in the LOIs, they haven’t lost their composure. They came back hard and delivered on occasion.
Mayers wins the match for Men in Brown
Who can forget the lifetime remarkable double century by Kyle Mayers to take Windies home? That was such a magnificent knock that it attracted praises from critics all across the world. After conceding a 140+ lead to Bangla in the first innings, no one would have expected West Indies to bounce back in the match. But Mayers made the impossible look possible. Monimul’s century in their 2nd innings ensured that Windies had to chase nearly 400 runs to win the game. It was Mayers with Bonner’s support who won the match.
Windies seals the series with 2 successive wins
Though west indies have won the match, very few have recognized their team spirit. Every eye was looking at Mayers, and every hand was busy appreciating Mayers for his 210* on his debut match. West Indies have won the second match in a row now to seal the series and prove that their win in the 1st match wasn’t an arrow in the dark. This time every player contributed to the success. From Bonner’s 90 and 38 to Cornwall’s five-wicket haul along with four wickets in the second innings, every player did their pair.
This win might be a start to the new era in Windies cricket towards their steps to reach the pinnacle set by their ancestors. Remember the dominance displayed by windies teams in the 1970s and early 1980s? It would be great if this team finds the right path to retain their old glory.
