T20 World Cup: Do-or-die game for West Indies, says Nicholas Pooran ahead of Bangladesh clash

West Indies batter Nicholas Pooran said that his team’s next clash of T20 World Cup against Bangladesh will be a do-or-die one. The wicket-keeper batsman stated that the mood in West Indies camp is upbeat, despite losing both the matches to England and South Africa in the tournament till now.

“It’s just another game of cricket. Anyone can win. But as you said, it’s a do-or-die game for us. And we believe that we’re going to be successful tomorrow. And again, I can’t emphasise enough how important it is to perform our roles. Once we do that, then everything can take care of itself,” said Pooran in the pre-match press conference on Thursday.

“The mood in the camp is still good. The guys are generally, think we were hit by losing those two games. And we have only ourselves to blame. But the mood is still good. We know what we have to do and everyone is up for the challenge,” added Pooran.

Pooran was of the opinion that West Indies and Bangladesh, placed sixth and fifth in the group standings, are on the same boat as far as losses are concerned ahead of the match in Sharjah. “I think Bangladesh, after losing two games, they’re in the situation with us as well. So, I think it’s going to be a good challenge for us tomorrow. We need to get that victory. And being in Sharjah as well, we know Bangladesh has a lot of spinners as well. It’s definitely going to be a good challenge for us as well. And it’s how bad we actually want it.”

“We can’t really say it’s short boundaries and we’re going to hit 6s. And we want to be aggressive as a team. We can’t really say that. Only when we go tomorrow and we assess the pitch, the conditions there, then we can actually try to put a game plan into place as quick as possible and try to get a really good score.”
