West Indies Now Focussing On ODI Series Against Pakistan

West Indies cricketers are now focusing on the two-match One-Day International series against Pakistan following elimination from the tri-nation series in Trinidad yesterday.

The matches against Pakistan will be played on July 14 and 16 at the National Stadium in Guyana.

West Indies were eliminated from the tri-nation series after India defeated Sri Lanka by 81 runs via the Duckworth/Lewis method in the rain-affected last league match of the series.

India, batting first, had their innings ended at 119 for three off 29 overs because of rain.

And Sri Lanka, set a revised target of 178 from 26 overs, were bowled out for 96 off 24.4 overs.

The West Indies were hoping for a Sri Lanka victory in order to advance to tomorrow’s final.

As a result of the victory, India have earned the right to meet Sri Lanka in the final.

India, who had lost their first two matches, earned a bonus point to finish atop the table on 10 points – one ahead of Sri Lanka and the West Indies on nine.

However, Sri Lanka advanced over the West Indies courtesy of a superior net run rate.

India captain Virat Kohli says the players showed a lot of character to bounce back from two straight defeats.
