In a perfect world theyd have a completely different top 6 but I think theyre a solid number 4 away from being very competitiveexcellent win by the windies - you truly do love to see it!
they really are a few top order batsmen away from being a top flight team and they've got the troops so as to contend in conditions conducive to fast bowling. if cornwall can come on as an allrounder then in spinning conditions they can pose a threat too. while they don't have the bats to compete with an australia or a south africa on roady roads or fast roads, we're seeing the fruits of what holder and co have been building for the past five years or so and it's really awesome to see tbh.
maybe this is the ceiling of this squad, who knows, but really to anyone who's been paying attention, the windies haven't been the laughing stock of the late 00's-early 10's for a while now; but now they're transitioning from "team on the rise" to delivering on that potential in their own right.
cricket may not need to have a strong west indies but it's certainly damn well better for it tbh
They have plenty of fast bowling depth right now, a competent captain, spinner and coach. Its such a shame that Darren Bravo fell away
