West Indies quicks rekindle memories of World Cup glory

West Indies quicks rekindle memories of World Cup glory Jason Holder's West Indies are reviving memories of their World Cup glory days with a pace attack that has the ability to strike fear into opposition batsmen.

Chris Gayle will "relish" the chance to take on England quicks Mark Wood and Jofra Archer, according to West Indies coach Corey Collymore.

Gayle has hinted he could retire from one-day cricket after the World Cup and is eager to bow out on a high befitting his self-appointed "Universe Boss" moniker.

The 39-year-old proved there was plenty left in the tank when England toured the Caribbean earlier this year, smashing a record 39 sixes in a drawn five-match series.

England's Wood a doubt for West Indies World Cup clash

England's Wood a doubt for West Indies World Cup clash England fast bowler Mark Wood could miss the World Cup match against the West Indies in Southampton on Friday following a recurrence of his longstanding ankle problems. 

The England cricket team toured the West Indies between January and March 2019 to play three Tests, five One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches. The series included England 's first Test match in Saint Lucia

West Indies 115 for 3 ( Gayle 77) beat England 113 (Thomas 5-21) by seven wickets Scorecard and ball-by-ball commentary. By the time Gayle was out, bowled by a Wood offcutter, West Indies ' work was done at 93 for 2, the winning runs coming from a boundary by Shimron Hetmyer off Tom Curran's

The teams reconvene at the Hampshire Bowl on Friday, when Gayle can expect to face a barrage from Barbados-born Archer and Durham's Wood.

Both men have hit 95 miles per-hour (153 kph) since the start of the tournament, but very little worries the big-hitting Jamaican.

"Chris thrives on that. I have known him since he was 16 and he has always loved a challenge," said Collymore, the West Indies bowling coach.

"He has always enjoyed the challenge of fast bowling so I expect him to relish that. I have known Archer for a while and I saw Wood in the Caribbean.

"They are both very impressive, as we have seen throughout this tournament."

Archer could have been bowling for the West Indies, had they persuaded him to pursue an international future with them, but even in his absence they are a frightening prospect.

Cricket World Cup: West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite found guilty of dissent

Cricket World Cup: West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite found guilty of dissent Carlos Brathwaite received one demerit point after breaching the ICC code of conduct during West Indies' defeat to England.

The home of West Indies Cricket on BBC Sport online. West Indies are showing "plenty of signs" of the "Calypso cricket" played by their previous dominant sides, says Australia coach Justin Langer.

The hosts have schooled England in the disciplines of Test cricket and made the tourists look like the slapdash outfit West Indies were once so wrongly caricatured as.

In Oshane Thomas, Andre Russell, Sheldon Cottrell and Shannon Gabriel they have four seamers capable of making the batsmen hop, leaving Collymore to predict a fiery encounter.

"I did work with him (Archer) when he was a lot younger in Barbados. He was very impressive. The skills he shows now are ones he always had so we are expecting more of the same from him," he said.

"But we have quick bowlers too so it should be a lively game.

"I don't think many people like the short stuff, whether it is England or the West Indies. If you find a batsman that has a weakness to it, then you go after that."
