Cricket West Indies chief of selectors Roger Harper has admitted the panel hoped to see more ‘sensible’ batting from players under the microscope at the ongoing Caribbean Premier League (CPL) tournament.

The tournament, being staged in a biosecure atmosphere in Trinidad and Tobago, due to the ongoing threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, has been widely panned for poor batting performances and low scoring.

“I think that yes we expected to have some better cricket.  I think at times a lot of power play was put in and not enough brain play,” Harper told the Mason and Guest radio program.

So have Harper contacted the coaches and discuss the quality of play?

Cpl is simply commercial exercise... unfit players getting some feel of cricket at the same time.....Harper and Co. should organise a pre New Zealand tour camp for better batsmanship under a competent coach/ex-player.....save and except Reifer.....

I don't get what Brown means when he said the teams are trying to score the runs upfront when all the runs are scored at the back end. Is that his formula for 20/20 to leave all the scoring to the back end?
