England had made light of WIndies in the first ODI where the visitors chased a humongous total with ease. The Windies captain then stressed on his bowlers nullifying the impressive batting strength of England – and they did that. Defending a total of 289, Windies bowlers bowled England out for 263 runs to win the game by 26 runs.
Cottrell seized the opportunity by picking up a brilliant 5 wickets in 9 overs. The bowler was given a chance in the absence of Kemar Roach and Keemo Paul – and he made sure that he made the most of it. The left-arm fast bowler has done enough to warrant a place in the team for the next game.
England will have an added incentive when they face Windies in the 3rd ODI after losing in the test series. The visitors are the top-ranked ODI team in the world and they must be itching to showcase that. The outcome of the upcoming match could be crucial in determining the winner of the series.
