Barbados: Darren Sammy, the West Indies captain, has urged his batsmen to post "bigger, match-winning totals" and singled out the rotation of strike as an area his team needs to improve upon in the fourth ODI against Pakistan in Barbados. The visitors have already taken the series 3-0 but Sammy is hoping to "pull one back" at the Kensington Oval.
"Rotating the strike is one area we have to get better at," Sammy said. "If we rotate the strike, that upsets the rhythm of the Pakistan bowlers and that would lead to us posting bigger, match-winning totals.
"The 'dot ball' percentage has been high and we need to combat the opposition bowlers. One of our major problems has been that we have not been putting enough runs on the board. As a batting unit we hit a lot of boundaries, but we have to get better at ticking over the strike, especially against the Pakistan spinners."
