WI vs SA 2021 – Simmons dissects West Indies’ batting failure after South Africa loss


Head coach says enough high-quality preparation is lacking away from international cricket

West Indies coach Phil Simmons has acknowledged that his batters have work to do on their techniques after their 2-nil series defeat against South Africa. Not only did West Indies lose both Tests by significant margins inside four days, they also failed to cross 200 in any of their four innings. They were also bowled out for 97 in their first innings of the first Test, their lowest against South Africa, which Simmons indicated was an illustration of a wider problem.

“In that first Test match, we got caught playing away from our bodies a lot and when a wicket is doing as much as it did in that Test match, then that is to your detriment and we saw that in being bowled out for 97,” Simmons said.
