IND vs WI: West Indies Lack The Temperament And Technique To Play Quality Spin – Saba Karim


Former India National Cricket Team wicketkeeper-batsman Saba Karim has said that the West Indies National Cricket Team lack the “temperament and technique” to play against quality spin bowling and they need to make improvements in this area to succeed in T20I cricket.

India hammered West Indies in the five-match T20I series to win the series by 4-1. In the last T20I, India fielded the spin trio of Ravi Bishnoi, Axar Patel and Kuldeep Yadav and the spinners shared all 10 wickets between them to restrict West Indies to 100 and help India win by 88 runs.

Speaking on India News Sports, Saba Karim said that the “gulf of quality” between India and the West Indies was “clearly visible” during the T20I series. He elaborated:

“The chances given to these players show how much confidence the team management has in their ability. They played three spinners and all of them were among the wickets. Axar bowled really well with the new ball. Kuldeep and Bishnoi did the damage in the middle overs.

“West Indies are a young side, but they lack the temperament and technique to play such quality spin. They will need to work on this facet if they want to become a contender for the T20 World Cup. The gulf of quality between the two sides was clearly visible.”

It was a huge experiment to go with three spinners – Virat Kohli’s childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma

Virat Kohli’s childhood coach, Rajkumar Sharma, during the same discussion, said that India made a huge experiment by playing 3 spinners. He added that the West Indies batters looked clueless against India’s spin trio. He asserted:

“It was a huge experiment to go with three spinners, but they bowled really well and we’re also economical. The West Indies batters had no clue how to tackle the high-quality spin and except [Shimron] Hetmyer, no one could even compete.

“So although this experiment was successful, the West Indies had a huge role to play in it because they couldn’t compete in ODIs as well as T20Is.”

Speaking on India News Sports, former cricketer Reetinder Singh Sodhi, said that the young leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi has emerged as a hot contender for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 and selecting a squad for the World Cup is going to be a tough job for selectors. He said:

“You simply can’t ignore Ravi Bishnoi’s performances now. He has emerged as a hot contender for the T20 World Cup. I can’t understand how selectors will get rid of their headache because whoever has got the chance has performed well.”
