Battered India face uphill task

Friday, 05 July 2013 - 12:02


India arrived in the West Indies with their confidence rocketing sky-high but in just over a week, the engines have come off.

The two losses in Kingston mean they now find themselves in a position where even two wins won't be enough to guarantee their progression.

Both Sri Lanka and West Indies have the cushion of a bonus point and India will need to find at least one to improve their position.

A loss won't totally obliterate India's chances either but will leave them hoping for the remaining results to work in their favour.

West Indies, on the other hand, are sitting comfortably with nine points from two games and a win will confirm them as one of the finalists.
