Ramdin slams WI's 'lazy attitude' on final morning

Play 03:27

Denesh Ramdin, the West Indies Test captain, has said that his players were lackadaisical and lacked hunger amid stiff resistance by the ninth-wicket pair of BJ Watling and Mark Craig in New Zealand's second innings in the Trinidad Test. Kemar Roach finally broke the partnership at the stroke of lunch on the final day, before Chris Gayle hit the joint second-fastest fifty for West Indies to bring up a ten-wicket win, West Indies' first following five losses and one draw.

"It was frustrating, having that lower order come and put some partnership there," Ramdin said. "They created some chances, we did not take them and at the end of the day, I think we were lackadaisical in the field. We were not hungry for the last couple of wickets there. And we came back this morning with a lazy attitude and it could have haunted us. But we came out on the better end in this match."

West Indies had lost the first Test in Kingston by 186 runs. Ramdin credited positive batting and disciplined bowling for the hosts levelling the series. "It was a fantastic victory in the end. It was a hard fought one as well. Our bowlers put in a lot of effort. Our batters did the job in the first innings, which is always good, trying to set up the match.

"Coming out of the Jamaica game, what we needed to put into this game was to attack their bowlers more, be confident, play our natural game. The batting has been coming along. Our confidence going into this Test match was a lot better than the one in Jamaica. We went out and played positive cricket, took the attack to the New Zealand bowlers.

"We bowled right areas. We were more patient. We tried to cut out the four-balls. On the first day, they were 80-odd for one or two wickets and we pulled it back tea time and then bowling them out having lost the toss, any captain will take that in a day's play."

West Indies posted 460 in their first innings to take a 239-run lead which proved decisive in the end. The total was made possible by contributions from young batsmen, with Kraigg Brathwaite and Darren Bravo making hundreds and Kirk Edwards and debutant Jermaine Blackwood scoring fifties. Ramdin said these were the players who would "take West Indies cricket forward."

"Jermaine Blackwood is an exciting young player. His name has been calling for the past couple of seasons in terms of runs at first-class level. They talk about application but when you go out and the manner in which he got his runs, he applied himself as well as played his shots throughout the innings. He surprised everyone, they did not know anything about him, and hopefully next game he can get a good score and go from strength to strength. You could see the energy that he brings to the team. Always enthusiastic, he wants to learn, he wants to go in every fielding position.

"Young Kraigg Brathwaite batted well for his century. Darren Bravo was short of runs but he came out in his home ground and he did well for himself. Kirk Edwards really took the attack to the opposition and tried to be on top them from ball one.

"Brathwaite is new to Test cricket in terms of matches. Young Bravo as well in terms of matches and Kirk Edwards, all those are young guys to take West Indies cricket forward and all have been doing well. Today we (also) saw the experience of Chris Gayle, who went out there and finished the game for us."

West Indies needed to chase 93, but were unable to start their second innings for more than an hour due to rain. When they did, Gayle belted six sixes on his way to an unbeaten 80 off 46. Ramdin said he had told Gayle to express himself in the middle.

"Chasing a small total is always tricky if you lose a couple of early wickets. The way Gayle plays I told him to go out there and enjoy himself and take the attack to the bowlers. He did what he had to do and finished them off. I have seen him in the past. In South Africa, he played (an aggressive) one. He was injured and came late to bat. This one was exciting. People had come out to support and they got some entertainment."

Going into the final Test in Barbados, Ramdin said that West Indies' catching needed to be much better if they wanted to take the series. Numerous chances went down in Port-of-Spain, especially in the slips. "Hopefully we can do some work in our slip cordon so that we can take those catches when they come on. It is frustrating to drop catches of those type of batters. They put on partnerships. Hopefully we will get it right come next game."

    The captain has unwittingly indicted himself for the team's lax attitude on the field at the tail-end of NZ's second innings. He has the advantage of being behind the stumps meaning that he sees everything and everyone. He should be the one setting the tone. If Ramdin didn't, he should have chastised the slackers at the end of the fourth day's play. Let them know that as professionals, he expects better from them at all times. That this kind of nonchalant attitude could cost us matches in the future. Ramdin himself has much to learn regarding field placings, reading the game, his men as well as the opposition. Hear him chirping all the time from behind the wicket but it seems as if some of his men tune him out. Hoping that he's learning on the job and will get better each day and series until he becomes quite efficient as captain. Young 'Braff' is being groomed to take over the captaincy in 4-5 years once he establishes himself in the team. BTW, what is AB Barath up to these days?

    Captain Ramdin and this team was just fantastic with this much needed win! It certainly set the pace for an exciting series. And yes Captain Ramdin was right in his admonishment of the down-trodden attitude of his players. The Captain's job is not easy ...and he must pull-up on lousy displays... Let's keep a positive team spirit boys!

    @Jerry Simon The Kensington Oval pitch can be fast when needed ie when playing Trinidad. there have been 3 1st class matches played there this season and the pace bowlers have taken the wickets

  • on June 23, 2014, 8:55 GMT

    Ramdin was terrible behind the stumps in this test, and not very creative as a captain. I don't think he'll last long in the role

    Leadership! Accountability! Discipline! Ramdin has brought these three missing elements to the West Indies cricket. We should not speculate negatively about his future as captain. Everyone knows that captaincy affects other parts of your game. Let's give him a chance to make the adjustment as a keeper and tactician.

    @ Balbir B. I don't know how much cricket you have been watching in the Caribbean for the past 5 years. But even the Barbados wicket is now pathetically low and slow. Check Barbados team, spinners Benn and Nurse are now the leading bowlers, the fast bowlers, like the rest of the Caribbean, is just ordinary.The oval in B'dos is just holding on to past glory.

  • on June 22, 2014, 22:44 GMT

    Semantics. We just finally batted properly... and Watling is good. Expect more and better in the third Test. You can see how this second test has deluded the Windies. So let's gear up and come strong and heavy in this decider Black Caps! This is what we have worked so hard for and towards. You can do this! Let it rip! If we win toss and bat first, we have to bat like we did in the first test and really apply ourselves. Drop Rutherford and we can play the following team and it is more than a match (if we execute) for the West Indies:

    1/ Latham 2/ McCullum (c) 3/ Williamson 4/ Taylor 5/ Anderson 6/ Neesham 7/ Watling 8/ Southee 9/ Wagner / Craig 10/ Sodhi 11/ Boult

    Even if NZ go with Craig and Sodhi (if it is a spinning pitch), it is the playing of B.Mac at opener and Corey Anderson in the line-up too as a consequence, that makes this the winning eleven. We only limit our prospects by not playing it. Corey's potential runs alone can erase Blackwood's potential runs, evening the field.

  • on June 22, 2014, 12:12 GMT

    WI have a few genuine pace bowlers like roach, best, taylor and gabriel. Problem is the wickets are dead for pace and suit the spinners. End result they hardly bowl. U don't bowl u don't develop as simple as that. Especially when u have a coach who hasn't played a test match. No team as produced as many quality fast bowlers as WI have (Australia might be the exception). So how come they couldn't find anyone other than him.

  • delboy on June 22, 2014, 8:39 GMT

    In order for WI to get into the top 5 they have to be playing more than 2 or 3 test match series. Moving to the top 5 is also dependent on what those above and around you are doing. The WI going into a 3 test series have to win 3-0 not win one lose, one and draw one in order to catch the likes of India, SA, AUS and England. I cannot see the WI beating all these teams 3-0. In fact they cannot beat Sri Lanka or bangladesh 3-0.

  • delboy on June 22, 2014, 8:25 GMT

    Come on people WI have won a test match on a day which was a national holiday when the boys decided to drop a few catches and have NZ set a score which would guarantee the paying crowd some 'entertainment'. On a more serious side though, it should not have been that way; with application the match could have been over in day three. That would leave day 5 free for a hastily arranged bank holiday exhibition match between the Trinidad (including Simmons, Bravo and Narine) team against a combined WI & NZ XI.

  • pz97 on June 22, 2014, 5:18 GMT

    I think West Indies are a bit too lazy in the field though they have tremendous muscle power in their body i.e very good athletes... But they are thinking too much of future and hence their confidence gets low at crunch situations..West Indies should include Sunil Narine.And if possible replace the coach as the coach looks a bit too lazy.. New Zealand though are showing good application in the recent matches under McCullum's captaincy. Happy for both.

  • Sinhaya on June 22, 2014, 3:36 GMT

    @chechong0114, I fully agree with you. Windies have squandered tests a lot of times before by giving tailenders freedom to score. Recall what happened in Barbados in 2012 when Ryan Harris piled the agony?

  • on June 22, 2014, 2:48 GMT

    Remember Lloyd's eleven had four speedster. You need that on the Barbados wicket.

    WI may consider resting Benn and use Gayle and someone else for some slow bowling.

    Ramdin is good for windies cricket a man who say exactly how he feel,that,to me is a good start,its pointless to keep the problems you see in your team to yourself,just as sammy use to do,that can afect the captain"s performance and approach.West indies have a history of lackadaisical attitude on the field when things are not going their way.Who knows,maybe we have found the key to unlock and bring out the best in our players. well done ramdin.

  • pvwadekar on June 21, 2014, 21:37 GMT

    The WI bowling is getting stronger -- Roach, Taylor, Gabriel can form of a good pace attack and they have young Jason Holder in the wings.. spinners like Ben, Narine ..But the pitches need to be better .. no placid pitches please. The batting however has go get it much better

  • Test_Match_Fan on June 21, 2014, 20:12 GMT

    Congratulations Windies. The test cricket world badly needs a strong W. Indies side. Chris Gayle brought some nostalgia ro revive memories of what a strong W. Indies used to look like. We all need more Chris Gayle type batsman in W. Indies. And by the way I am not from W. Indies.

  • Rally_Windies on June 21, 2014, 19:58 GMT

    @ Alexei

    So what if Roach averages 28 ..

    his average in THIS series is 33 ...

    Taylor's is 17 .....

    in THIS series Roach is below his best ....

    and FYI Deonarine averages 28 with the ball as well. And he got dropped ....

    I would personally prefer to see 4 pacers + Deonarine playing !

  • on June 21, 2014, 19:13 GMT

    Great win. I had hoped that Ramdin also look at his own decisions, especially on the end of the 4th day. He was not as attacking and give Watling too much respect. The great Windies team always had an attack plan for EVERY batsman. He should have given the pacers more bowling on that afternoon, even 2-3 over spells in rotation with attacking fields. However, I hope this is a learning curve that will result in more application and boldness for the Windies. Also Let Gayle be Gayle. Go West Indies.

  • FOUR-REAL-QUICKS on June 21, 2014, 18:44 GMT

    Sir Ambi will hopefully be around for a long, long time. If he gets to coach/advise Ray Jordan and Ronsford Beaton in a year or two, look out! Be like the good old days :-)

  • on June 21, 2014, 18:29 GMT

    I agree that the absence of Narine was felt heavily. If Narine had been in the team instead of Gabriel the match would have wrapped up on day four. As for the WI batting, it was never really tested with quality spin, and Sohdi is not that good. The bowling attack right now should be Taylor and Roach to open with pace, and Sillingford and Narine to cut off the tail. And the team needs an all rounder who can bowl better than Gayle.

  • on June 21, 2014, 18:18 GMT

    I think both teams performed admirably. NZ fought gallantly after WI put on a big first inning lead. WI bowlers toiled long and hard in the blazing Caribbean sun and fatigue was indeed a factor. Five long days of cricket is indeed very demanding and I think both teams gave their very best. Ramdin's negative comments, to my mind, were unnecessary and unjustified, especially since WI won by 10 wickets. Ramdin should have complimented his bowlers for taking 20 wickets with ten on day one. Benn bowled so many overs and seemed to be in top shape. He was very enthusiastic during the entire match and always carried a smile. Ramdin did a lousy job in his field settings. NZ got boundaries too easily through the covers and square leg.

  • on June 21, 2014, 17:51 GMT

    New Zealand needed to play Neil Wagner, always play to your strength

  • on June 21, 2014, 17:50 GMT

    Well done to the West Indies but I agree with Captain Ramdin. We seem like we were asleep in the early morning with those two drop catches in the slips one after the other.

  • Alexei on June 21, 2014, 16:38 GMT

    @Collis73 Kraigg Brathwaite and Kirk Edwards have both played against Australia and New Zealand (both home and away) and have scored runs against them... these teams boast competent players that control the new ball well, why should we knock them if scoring runs is all that matters? Gayle has no footwork, why arent u knocking him? You probably shouldnt since he avaerages over 42 over 101 Test matches. I can understand cussing Gabriel but Roach has the best record in the Test setup, even better than Taylor. He averages 28... I sincerely believe nothing pleases you WI fans

  • BlakeHoulihan on June 21, 2014, 16:14 GMT

    Ramdin was a good, strong choice as captain. I hope he has the respect and backing of the players. Many of the team were a bit fatigued though after so many overs, it's bloody draining watching big partnerships for the 9th, 10th wicket, even from the grand stands.

  • siddhartha87 on June 21, 2014, 15:48 GMT

    I like it..Sounds Ramdin is hungry for more success. Hope to see another win for Indies in last test. And yes,Gayle ,please play positively like this.

  • Collis79 on June 21, 2014, 15:17 GMT

    It was not just the " lazy attitude" that I was not impressed with. The techniques of Brathwaite, Edwards and the rest of the batting is useless as they refuse to move their feet. We cannot be serious including Benn, he is just not a Test material as he takes too long to get wickets. Taylor done well but Roach and Gabriel have been around long enough to develop their bowling and they haven't. All they do is just run in with no plans of what they're intending to do with the ball. Against better sides we will be exposed. I can't imagine Gibson being happy with Ambrose onboard, after all, Ambrose is a proud WIndian who wants to develop the players and get WIndies back to past glories,

  • chechong0114 on June 21, 2014, 15:03 GMT

    Great observation and great attitude by captain Ramdin, that is the attitude that needs to be adopted by the whole team if they are to continue to have success at the test level. I hope the other players especially the senior ones do not take offense to his statements but adopt his mentality to ensure success going forward. West Indies cricket is in desperate need of some consistent success in all levels and formats of the game so hats off to Dinesh for taking the time to make his concerns known.

  • on June 21, 2014, 14:23 GMT

    i'm impressed.... i thought ramdin was immature as a leader... and in some ways i could see where tactically he was shy (first match- an LBW shout that he should have reviewed he didn't.. i'm sure if it were sammy he would have asked sammy to review... but because he is the captain he may have been timid - it would have been overruled and given out had he reviewed) and this game .. i would have expected at 8 wickets down to see 5 slips a gully and 2 bat pads... attack them... the gaps in the field may have surrendered the same 93 run lead... but at least for the afternoon session on the 4th day .. the last hour or so... they could have tried...

    curtly is a big help i'm seeing. wonder if a batting consultant may be of use?

    good game. alot of good mental features were reflected here.... if west indies keep these changes and persevere... we can actually get in the top 5 i think

  • on June 21, 2014, 13:52 GMT

    In the past, West Indies won because of their style which did not allow bowlers to settle down. They attacked. It is the West Indies way. That is what Gayle did - notice that he doesn't grind out a score like BJ and every time he tries to, he fails. Our greats before him did similarly and earned nicknames like 'master-blaster' and so on. Of course, in those days the captain set the tone and was, essentially, the coach. Going out and blocking from the first ball plays the game of the opposition so let us hope that, going forward, we can beat the ball and take the half of the responsibility for winning a game from the bowlers. Let's hope that the coach learns this and that our captain knows that it is his call. please do it the 'Windies way.' Congratulations guys.

  • on June 21, 2014, 13:48 GMT

    The only thing that the West Indian team lacks is self confidence. If you can bat explosively, take some stunning catches and bowl excellent spells in the IPL, why you cannot prove your excellence in the other format of the game.

  • on June 21, 2014, 13:22 GMT

    Great attitude - but how ill they rectify same on the field when it creeps back up? The wicketkeeper has the responsibility to organise all close fielders, and should do so the next time, especially as the wicketkeeper is also the skipper!

  • mrhamilton on June 21, 2014, 13:20 GMT

    test cricket is a long drawn out war not a run in the park.at the end of the fourth day west indies showed why they are not winning test, they slouched , got frustrated and gave up. the captain has to take some responsibility , he needed to attack the tail enders more , four slip and a gully , and short fielders in front of the bat, hopefully he will learn. it's a young team that needs NARINE because he is a wicket taker and the tail enders have no chance against him. benn bowled a lot of overs but does not penetrate enough , they won but they must understand that tests are hard fought little battles within the game and only those who are mentally and physically ready will come out victorious. GOOD LUCK IN THE NEXT GAME, BRING NARINE.
