What a change from just a change in format. After being throughly dominated in both traditional formats, the Windies are excelling in T20s.
Scary, isn't it.
I don't know why they can't play like this in ODI cricket They have the players, but clearly don't have the mindset.
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

Because you can't play 50 overs the same way you can 20 overs. Why don't teams bat at 8 runs per over for 4 sessions of a Test match? That would 1000 runs and no team would lose from that position. Attacking fields means its easy to hit boundaries in Tests, no?

Doesn't work that way.

Simply put, the ODI game is not just about power hitting (WI and Afghans are good at that) except in the the last 5-7 overs when you bat first. In today's game the ODI game is as follows:

First powerplay - save wickets and look to score 45 runs losing at most 1 wicket. Anything more is a bonus.
2nd powerplay - consolidation and accumulation phase. Score at 5+ runs per over by limiting dot balls. boundaries are not essential by RBW is critical.
3rd powerplay - go solid from overs 41-45...explode in the last 5.

So a team can score 45-1 in PP1, 175-3 in PP2, and 80-100+ in PP3 giving a total of 300-320 or even more. 300 will always give you a sniff at a win, if you can bowl well or if the pitch misbehaves in the 2nd half.

Its that PP2 that is most vital given it is 60% of the innings. And you will see that all the bottom ranked sides really struggle there.

Its not surprising that there is such incompetent umpiring in BD. Almost every domestic season has comtroversies with players expressing dissent and getting in trouble.

That being said, DRS should be available for use in any situation to dispute umpires calls and or the 3rd umpire should be able correct wrong decisions even if players are unaware.

The other factor is all 3 formats should employ neutral umpires. Thank god Tests do. Umpire errors should not be allowed to ruin matches. Thankfully, the Windies managed to overcome it in this series.
