Winning is important for WI

Well winning is of utmost importance for the West Indies especially after the first test ended in a draw and in that test match, the player of the match was given to the Bangladeshi bowler Elias Sunny who scalped 6 wickets in the first innings. More than that, Bangladesh had a first innings lead of 106 runs which definitely draws in a lot of criticisms from all over. On the whole, the West Indies had nothing to take home in that match that lasted for five days. Now, though West Indies have taken a 1st innings lead, the game still lies in a balance.

In the ongoing second test, outlook suggests that everything is going on right for the West Indies after they had a lead of 231 runs by the end of the third day's play. But, with two more days still to go, a draw can well be expected to be on the cards. Had it been India or South Africa, may be a total of 231 would have solved matters. But, with the opposition being West Indies, nothing can be said surely. Things that are to be confirmed for the West Indies to ensure a win are first, they should put up a more decent total on the board.

And, secondly, they will have to bowl out Bangladesh for the second time in the game which requires a lot of thinking and planning. An ideal approach would be to leave the Bangladeshi batsmen with enough time, batting which requires a lot of hard work and at the same time winning the same needs effort. With little time left for the hosts to bat, the best approach for them would be to stand and see to it that the game gets drawn. And, in case West Indies are to see to it that Bangladesh don't snatch a draw, then a considerable time needs to be given for them to bat.

For that to happen, there needs to be a quickfire batting display from Bravo and co, ensuring the touring nation that they leave Bangladesh with no other option but to either go for the kill or else surrender. The ideal total looking at the third day's play would be somewhere close to 500. In case the match ends in a draw, it is as though Bangladesh have retained the trophy with them whitewashing the West Indies on their previous tour couple of years back. So, that is why winning is important for the West Indies. Still, all is not lost when you can make money online.
