Windies were strategic. They must think that they have a better chance of getting to the semi-finals against Pakistan than a wounded Australia. I honestly hoped they would not have won.

WI should have played Chanderpal instead of Thomas. Chander is a good reliable bat who can keep one end going, albeit his strike rate is not high. In the next game 2 changes are needed. Chanderpal for Thomas and Gayle for Edwards. If WI bat well with determination, they have the potential to beat Pakistan. Disciplined batting is lacking in the team which is causing their failure.Gayle, Smith 3. Sammy 4. Bravo 5. Pollard 6. Sarwan 7. Chanderpal 8. Russel will provide a strong line up. But they must stay and not throw away their wkts. Good Luck in Q/F.
