'King' Lewis is born

Wednesday, July 12, 2017

Rank bad fielding and poor bowling cost India the Kingston T-20 game as Evin Lewis played like a 'King' to prove why West Indies are the T-20 world champions in this format. A brilliant knock of 125 not out from Lewis which had 12 gusty blows over the rope showed Indian bowlers in bad light as the Island Nation cruised to an incredible win to the delight of home fans where cricket is treated as an religion, similar to what we have back home.
West Indian players may have had payment issues with their cricket board but they did no damage to their reputation when playing for national pride. Indian players on the other hand played without interest as IPL seems to have changed their attitude & they perform only when big bucks are at stake. Our bowlers bowled donkey drops & fielders dropped sitters to the shock of fans back home & we truly need an performance based remuneration system to get our boys give off their best when playing for the national side. MS Dhoni is a class player but time is ripe for him to hang his boots as the reflexes behind the stumps have certainly slowed down & motivation missing in his batting when he has nothing more to prove now!
