Port of Spain: West Indies skipper Darren Sammy blamed the 16-run defeat against India in the lone Twenty20 match on playing too many dot balls.
The hosts, while chasing 160 to win, did not score off 50 balls, which amounts to 40 per cent of the balls at their disposal.
"Dot balls have been plaguing us and we left it a little too late in the end. But with people like Barnwell, we know we can chase big Twenty20 totals. The batsmen should play the spinners better come Monday," Sammy said.
