CRICKET: Fast bowler confident West Indies can bounce back
West Indies fast bowler Tino Best says the absence of their big hitters, due to injuries, impacted the team's performance in the first Twenty20 against New Zealand at Eden Park on Saturday.
New Zealand set the visitors 190 to chase but West Indies crumbled to end on 108 for 8.
It left West Indies needing to win the second game in Wellington on Wednesday to square the series before returning home.
Best picked up 3 for 40 from his four overs in the match.
Commenting on the upcoming World Twenty20 in March in Bangladesh, Best believes that West Indies are on course to defend their title because they are likely to be back to full-strength.
He says the weakened squad had made the New Zealand tour much tougher.
