End to a slightly disappointing, if not terrible, ODI series that India A lost. Was this another win-the-toss-win-the-match series? Were India A not playing as a team? Were they just playing for places in the national side? There are a few positives, but the one big negative is that none of them, except Yuvraj and Vinay, played for a series win. ODI prospect Kedar Jadhav had a poor series, throwing his wicket away prematurely in both instances.
Two, no, three things may be noted- the Indian A team, albeit a different one from the one that squashed New Zealand A, has handled chases between 250 and 300 in even conditions nicely, but in a high chase, they fall apart, no matter how many batsmen they have. The combination of four bowlers with Yuvraj/Yusuf/Baba did not work. Clearly. West Indies A, on the other hand, choked the Indian A batsmen with tight bowling for the entire innings. The pace of the West Indian bowlers, vs the lack of pace of the Indians, also made a difference- the array of fours, sixes and easy singles could not be attempted on Cummins, bowling over 140K often.
