T20 World Cup: Pollard says Windies batting in England drubbing was unacceptable

A
desperate
55
all
out
from
West
Indies
allowed
England
to
sprint
to
a
six-wicket
victory
in
Dubai,
with
this
Group
1
clash
a
rematch
of
the
2016
final.

England’s
small
measure
of
revenge
for
that
heartbreaking
defeat
stemmed
from
West
Indies
posting
the
second-lowest
T20
international
total
by
a
Test-playing
nation.

Pollard
said:
“Being
bowled
out
for
50-odd
as
an
international
team
is
never
acceptable
but
we’ll
come
back
stronger.”

He
explained:
“We
didn’t
bat
well
and
it’s
disappointing
to
start
our
tournament
like
that,
being
defending
champions.

“But
we
have
to
accept
it
and
take
responsibility
for
what
happened
out
there.
We
have
to
put
this
game
to
bed
and
move
on.

“We
just
need
to
go
back
and
look
at
the
way
we’ve
performed
and
see
if
we
can
maybe
find
a
medium
as
to
how
we
approach
it.
It’s
very
important
we
forget
a
game
like
this.
For
us,
it’s
pretty
simple

accept
and
move
on.”

Captain
Morgan
after
England’s
win
over
Windies

Pollard
sought
to
find
a
positive
by
praising
the
“intensity
in
the
field”
of
his
players
as
England
chased
their
small
target.

An
England
victory
was
all
but
a
formality,
however,
and
for
Adil
Rashid
it
was
a
day
to
remember,
England’s
spinner
taking
4-2
from
2.2
overs.

Rashid
said
afterwards:
“I
don’t
think
we
could
have
asked
for
a
better
start.
We
bowled
exceptionally
well
and
everything
went
to
plan.”

He
added:
“As
a
bowling
unit,
we
know
we
have
five
or
six
match-winners
and
on
any
given
day
anyone
can
come
on
and
get
wickets.
We
don’t
want
to
look
too
far
ahead
and
we’ll
take
it
a
game
at
a
time.
Whatever’s
in
front
of
us,
we’ll
play
that.”

West
Indies
are
next
in
action
on
Tuesday
(October
26),
when
they
play
South
Africa,
while
England
must
wait
until
Wednesday
(October
27)
for
a
clash
with
Bangladesh.
