West Indies have done their part of the job.

The win ensures they qualify for the next stage of knockouts.
Whats still not sure is what position they will finish in Pool B?
That will be decided by result in the Pak vs #Irl match.

#JohnsonCharles and #JonathanCarter fifities ensured Windies cantered to their third win in the league in desired manner. In absense of Gayle, they needed to fire and they have done that!

CWC15 LIVE - Poor Intensity In Field By Windies In A Must Win Game Vs UAE

#WestIndies vs #UAE
15th Mar 2015

After a stunning start in their must win game, the West Indies have suddenly gone off the boil.
As if to suggest, they are not interested in winning this game with a handsome margin ... their body language is hopeless. On field spats between #DarrenSammy and #JasonHolder hasnt helped cause. Someone needs to wake them up!!

Earlier in the day, #JasonHolder and #JeromeTaylor tore through the UAE top order to envision a quick finish to he game and strengthen their Pool B position. Holder was superb with his line, speed and bounce. Holder bowled himself in one spell. 10-127-4. Fabulous figures.

At 46 for 6, it was a matter of time but #AmjadJaved and #NasirAziz dug deep.
Coupled with that some really insid bowling and attitude by the Windies in the field allowed them to build a 100 run partnership to bring some respectability to their score.

#AndreRussell coming to bowl at the back end of the innings has broken that long stand by castling Javed. He also knocked off the new batsman #Naved in his next over. #MarlonSamuels has just removed Aziz followed by Taylor castling #Tauqir to wrap up the UAE innings.

UAE: 175 all out
#JasonHolder - 4 wickets
#JeromeTaylor - 3 wickets
#AndreRussell - 2 wickets

Playing without #ChrisGayle, Windies need to win this game by a big margin to entertain chances of progressing in the tournament.

CWC 2015 LIVE - India Bowling All Over West Indies Batting

#WestIndies v #India, #WACA, #Perth

India's dominating performances at the #CWC15 continued today in this Pool B encounter.
Electing to bat on a belter of a WACA track, the Windies have imploded big time in a game they need to win to improve their chances of a quarter final berth.

The WI innings started really slowly and never really got going...

The top order crumbled under relentless pace pressure from the Indian seamers, Shami and Yadav.

The middle order failed to make amends too (Carter, Simmons and Russell) came and went with nothing to show.

The late order #DarrenSammy and skipper #JasonHolder seem to have brought some respite and stability to the sinking ship. From 85 for 7, the two stitched together a partnership of 39 before Sammy fell.

Holder, now in company of #JeromeTaylor has added an unbeaten 42 invaluable runs by unsettling the Indian bowlers. Just goes to show it is a mindset game!

#LIVE #Cricket #Score:
WI - 172 for 8 in 42 overs

Jason Holder - 49*
Jerome Taylor - 10* 

India bowlers
#MohamadShami - 3 wickets
Yadav, Sharma, Ashwin, Jadeja - 1 wicket each

West Indies #Fans will be extremely disappointed by this performance of their unpredictable team. The problem is .. this unpredictability is on the wrong side for now!

CWC 20115 LIVE - West Indies Win Toss - Bat First v India

#WestIndies v #India , #WACA, #Perth
6th Mar 2015

West Indies captain #JasonHolder won the toss and elected to bat first on flat WACA pitch v India.

This game is extremely crucial from Windies point of view. They need to beat India to remain in hunt for that Quarterfinal berth from Pool B. A loss will make it really tough for them but the group becomes really exiting in that case with Pakistan, Ireland and an outside Zimbabwe waiting to pounce on an opportunity.

India on the other hand would like to maintain their unbeaten record and top Pool B. This will ensure they will face either England or Bangladesh in their quarterfinal game (in all probability).

#MSDhoni mentioned he was happy to chase at the WACA because the wicket would play even throughout. Windies have brought in #KemarRoach to bolster their speed attack and going without any spinner! Thats very surprising but seems to be their strategy to unsettle India's batting through pace and bounce.
