We’re on the verge of crossing the line and discovering our true strength: Nicholas Pooran. ‘We’re ready to come out there and put our hearts and souls on the line as a team,’ Pooran said.
West Indies captain Nicholas Pooran has stated that the Men in Maroon are working hard to learn from their mistakes and that their best version is not far away. The Men in Maroon are currently playing an ODI series against India.
West Indies are struggling, particularly in the 50-over format. Having recently lost an ODI series against Bangladesh. Now losing the ODI series against India after losing the first two encounters. The final One-Day International (ODI) match played on July 27 against India (Wednesday).
This game is constantly teaching us new things: Nicholas Pooran
“This game is constantly teaching us new things, and I’m grateful for the opportunity.” It’s difficult to lose, and I’m disappointed, but that’s where learning happens, and as a group, we understand that and know for a fact, that it’s our time now,” Pooran said ahead of the third ODI against India.
“I keep telling people that winning and losing is contagious, and right now in ODI cricket, we’re losing and finding ways to lose games, but in terms of confidence, all the guys are ready to take on the challenge again.” We’re ready to go out there and put our hearts and souls on the line as a team,” he added.
Despite losing the first two matches, the home team fought hard against the Men in Blue and crossed the 300-run mark in both. Skipper Pooran appears to be in good form, as the left-handed batter hit an excellent fifty in the second ODI.
“Obviously, we’re just getting started putting together performances.” I don’t want to come to the conclusion that our batting or bowling are our strengths. We’re still figuring it out as a group. We haven’t put in a collective effort yet, and the results haven’t shown it, but the more games we play as a unit, the more we’ll figure it out, and we’re close to crossing the line and figuring out what our strength as a team is,” said Pooran.
