Badree backing Windies’ ‘match-winners’

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (CMC):

Former champion leg-spinner Samuel Badree, one of the architects behind West Indies’ capture of the 2012 and 2016 Twenty20 (T20)World Cups, still considers the reigning champions as one of the favourites for this year’s tournament, despite their recent form.

West Indies lost both their opening warm-up games this week, going down by seven wickets to Pakistan on Monday and by 56 runs to Afghanistan on Wednesday.

However, Badree said the Caribbean side remained a serious threat because of the plethora of match-winners in the side.

“Five years later and I think West Indies have as good a chance as any team to win the title again,” Badree wrote in his tournament column for the International Cricket Council.
