Trinbago Knight Riders and West Indies captain Kieron Pollard has identified an inability to adapt to different conditions as one that not only plagued teams throughout the Caribbean Premier League season (CPL) but negatively impacts the regional team as well.

The CPL season was characterized by a spate of low scores, with many fingers pointing towards an unsatisfactory surface for T20 batsman to ply their trade. In fact, the average score per innings score fell around 20 runs from last season’s average of around 151, compared to this season’s average of 122.

Judging from the just completed England tour it is a WI problem with all their batsmen, the failure to adjust.Also when things get back to normal the WICB should give the umpires technical help

Pouty is absolutely correct. Dere were too many questionable decisions taken by batsmen.

You cyah tell me dat a player who scored 500 or so runs last CPL playing regular cricket shots turn up swiping dis year or a player get drop and play de same shot and get caught next ball
