After West Indies missed out on a World Cup for the first time in their history, former captain Carlos Brathwaite was unhappy.
In their Super Six match in the qualification event in Zimbabwe on Saturday, the Windies were defeated by Scotland by a margin of seven wickets.
The recent failure of the West Indies cricket team to qualify for the World Cup has left former cricketers disappointed. In a historic turn of events, the Windies suffered a seven-wicket loss to Scotland during their Super Six clash at the qualification tournament in Zimbabwe. With zero points after three matches and Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka already securing six points, the West Indies will be unable to catch up in their remaining two games.
Former captain Carlos Brathwaite expressed his disappointment, acknowledging the team’s struggles in white-ball cricket. Quoted by the International Cricket Council (ICC), Brathwaite described this as the team’s lowest point, especially after missing out on the Super 12 stage in the T20 format last year.
Ian Bishop, another former cricketer, highlighted the declining trend in West Indies cricket over the past decade. He acknowledged the need for consistent performance against top nations in one-day international cricket. He emphasized the need for collective efforts to revive the team’s representation.
This failure marks the first time in history that the West Indies cricket team has yet to qualify for a World Cup. Previously, they had won the first two editions of the tournament. The competition for the remaining two spots in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 now involves Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Scotland, and the Netherlands.
