West Indies cricket fan, St Lucian Allan Hypolite thinks the Windies have an uphill battle to try to save the current Test match against Australia.
“The least they could do is try,” he told DNO.
Hypolite has been critical of the Windies batting, suggesting that “there were too many soft dismissals from the top-order batsmen.”
“With just a little application we could have been in a better position. We allow Australia off the hook from 167 for 8. Now I think Australia have their hands in their throat”.
The St Lucian is advising that to get out of that “they have to bowl well, take early wickets”.
He also reiterated his concern about the Windies batting.
“I think the inexperience at the top order is what is the West Indies’ basic problem. Your full four batsmen, between them, have not played 50 Test matches yet – that has to be a concern, the experience is lacking,” he said.
According to the avid cricket fan the Windies “can’t rely on Chanderpaul for everything”.
“Somebody else have to come up and score runs,” he suggested, labeling that the core of West Indies’ problems.
