St John's, Antigua: West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo wants more runs from his batsmen when they take on England in the third and deciding One-Day International (ODI) here Wednesday. England levelled the series one-all after holding their nerve to clinch a three-wicket win in the second ODI Sunday after the West Indies won the first by 15 runs at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium here, reports CMC.
Bravo says while he was pleased with the energy and fighting spirit of his teammates during the second ODI, more runs on the board will work in the West Indies' favour in light of the strength of their bowling. "I think we definitely need to bat better," said Bravo at a pre-game news conference Tuesday.
"If we bat better, then we can put a better total on the board. The last game obviously was not a winning total but I was encouraged by the energy and the fighting spirit."
