JAMAICA GLEANER – Reigning World champions West Indies find themselves in the unfamiliar position of battling to avoid a whitewash when they clash with Pakistan in the final Twenty20 International of the three-match series today.
Battered following two bruising defeats in the opening games in Dubai, West Indies will aim for a dramatic turnaround in order to extract some semblance of pride from what has otherwise been a humbling experience.
The side, which won an unprecedented second T20 World Cup last April in India, are yet to display that swagger and captain Carlos Brathwaite said now was a good a time as any for his unit to make their presence felt.
“Every game we play, we go out there to win. Psychologically, going into the longer format – the 50 overs – it would do us a hell of a lot of good to get a victory,” Brathwaite said yesterday.
“We need to go out there and do the things we know how to do, do them better than we did in the first two games, and we’re more than confident that we can come out with a win.”
