Following the West Indies’ exit from the T20 World Cup 2024, captain Rovman Powell reflected on the team’s performance. The defeat in their last Super 8 match against South Africa in Antigua meant they did not advance to the semi-finals.

Post-match, Powell acknowledged the team’s shortcomings in batting.

“Credit has to be given to the boys, they fought till the very end,” Powell remarked.

He expressed disappointment with the batting lineup, saying, “As a batting group, this is a performance you’d want to forget. We did not bat well in the middle. It was not an easy wicket, especially to get started. In the middle overs, we lost wickets in clusters. That broke the back of our batting team.”

Yet, he praised the bowlers’ performance.

“It was a commendable bowling effort. We said we wanted to give it our all. They [the team] believed even if it was only 135,” he commented.

Powell also shared his satisfaction with the team’s overall progress.

“When you look on a large scale, we have not won the World Cup or in the semi-final, but if you look at the cricket we have played in the last 15 months, to go from No.9 to No.3 in the rankings, it is commendable. There is a lot of buzz in the Caribbean around West Indian cricket, and now is where the work starts. Continue to work together as a group and make the Caribbean people proud,” he said.

He extended gratitude towards the fans for their unwavering support.

“They [crowd] have been fantastic. Every venue we have played and all the social media likes and stuff they have given us, we really appreciate that as a team. Good to see some buzz is back and for long, it had died down. Now, people are rallying around the players. When we hear the anthem, as players, we feel something and that is heading in the right direction. Thanks to the people of Antigua for coming out [tonight]. Not just people in Antigua but to everyone in the Caribbean, thanks for coming out,” Powell concluded.
