When Gayle nudged a single off Chris Woakes to reach a run a ball hundred, sinking to his knees in celebration and seemingly only just being able to get up again, he had faced an astonishing 55 dot balls but had still provided another master-class of six hitting. "That would give the bowlers some momentum to work with". "We've got to pull up our socks". Gayle, during West Indies' first ODI against England at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, surpassed Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi's record of hitting the most number of sixes in worldwide cricket. "And we're very aware of what he's doing". Stokes and Buttler were both involved in the Test series in the Windies and are playing in the ongoing One-Day International (ODI) series which ends on March 2, 2019.
"We have to very strict with our plans come tomorrow", Holder said. It is the most by a team in the history of ODIs. But he is very keen to play in these games. "He has done a lot for us in the last couple of years and it is good to see him fit and playing so I expect a really good showing from him, he is up to the challenge as well".
West Indies hit a record 23 sixes against England on Wednesday as Chris Gayle fired the hosts to 360-8 in the opening ODI in Barbados. "Our bowlers did create opportunities, but we didn't hold them".
Former England opener turned TV analyst Mark Butcher believes that Jason Roy has what it takes to succeed in Test cricket, and that he could replicate the success that Australia opener David Warner has.
Holder also pointed specifically to the Windies death bowling as an area that needed improvement in the coming matches. "We're excited about it because we've been building to it for so long".Читайте также: Jussie Smollett suspended from Empire TV show
"Hopefully, he can bat us into a position".
"I raised the West Indies flag a bit high since it's my last home series (before retiring)", he told Sky Sports.
Asked about starting the series at Kensington Oval, Holder responded: "I think it is an added boost".
Jonny Bairstow played a minor role by comparison, first man down for 34, but Morgan highlighted an electric opening stand of 91 between him and Roy as a pivotal period.
Ben Stokes and Adil Rashid claimed three wickets a piece for 37 and 74 runs, respectively, for the Three Lions.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
