West Indies coach Phil Simmons has backed the One Day International (ODI) team to eventually pull things together after a number of discouraging recent results.

The ODI format has been the team’s least productive over the last few years, having won just 9 of 51 series played in the last 10 years, which amounts to a 17 percent win rate.  In the last three consecutive series, the regional team has failed to win a game after being swept aside 3-0 by Pakistan, Bangladesh, and India.

“The first two games we batted the 50 overs and looked like we understood what batting 50 overs was about.  I think that’s a step forward and we will just have to keep trying to move forward with that,” Simmons told members of the media on Wednesday.

Really, Mr. Simmons? Is the West Indies team new to cricket? I wonder what you would say about Afghanistan, who are performing above the level of the West Indies right now and would have no problem beating them. And remember, Afghanistan are the ones new to international cricket. What the West indies players need are brains. They lack the head piece to be successful at cricket. In other words, they are dunces! Period!
