Captain Bravo reflects on ODIs

KANPUR, India – Dwayne Bravo was hoping his 150 One-Day International for West Indies would have turn out better. The skipper celebrated the landmark but could on watch as his team went under to India at Green Park Kanpur on Wednesday.

The result meant India won the three-match series 2-1. The West Indies lost the first match in Kochi last Thursday but rebounded to win the second encounter in Vizag.

“The average score on this wicket is 230-235 and we did really well to get to 260-plus” said Bravo, who got two wickets at the back end of the Indian innings.

“...but the wicket did get better to bat on in the afternoon and the strong Indian line-up got a very good start. We were outplayed with the bat and we need to give credit where it is due.”

Bravo gave an assessment of the West Indies during the series.

“At times we were inconsistent with the ball and we paid for it. We did a lot of things right but unfortunately just didn't win the game. We are disappointed because this was our best opportunity to win a series in India. We just have to regroup and keep believing,” he said.
