India will tour West Indies for 3 ODIs and 5 T20s starting from July 22. While praising the bench strength of the Indian side, the West Indies white-ball captain Nicholas Pooran said they have what it takes to challenge the Indian side. He revealed to Times of India that their side is very much prepared to take on the Men in Blue and wanted to send a message across the world.
The West Indian added that the Indian side possesses a million players who can come and win the game for their country, but that’ll be challenged by the Men in Maroon in the upcoming series. “They have millions of players who can come and do that role. They have match-winners with bat and ball and we can come out and challenge them here and Florida, it will send a message across the cricket world. And it will be fabulous for us as a group as well,” Pooran said.
Pooran assured that the West Indian team will put their best foot forward and they might look to win the series to regain their form in ODIs. “We are looking forward to the series and our aim is to be competitive and play exciting cricket. We will look to put our best foot forward,” he said.
The white-ball captain added that they consider the World Cup qualifiers a blessing in disguise as it gives them enough chances to get used to the conditions before the tournament. Pooran stated that he is enjoying his stint as the white-ball captain and said that he is working on his bowling too.
“I am enjoying my role and I am doing some bowling too. The guys are supporting me 100% and we can do wonderful things,” he said. The Men in Maroon will be looking forward to winning the series against Men in Blue and they might very well send a message across the world, as assured by their white-ball captain.
