West Indies are the defending champions of the ICC T20 World Cup. But they have not fared well in the tournament’s Super 12s qualifying round. They lost to Ireland on Friday and are mathematically out of the running for a berth in the final.
The team made a triumphant return to international cricket after a five-year absence. It was their first win in a major tournament since the Champions Trophy in 2004. And it came with a new set of players and a new coach.
With the arrival of a new coach, the team has had to find its footing. However, they beat Australia for the first time in their history on the tournament’s final day.
The team had a decent start but lost both openers, Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis, in the second over. Despite a good start, the side never looked like reaching its target of 190.
