A loose-limbed left-handed batsmen holds the responsibility of opening the fragile West Indian batting. This man hasn’t lived up to the expectations. The only reason for his failure is that his feet get stuck and usually tries to blast the ball through the point region or a flashy square cut resulting in an edge.
If Hinds has to come good, he must remove the glue from his pair of shoes and start moving his feet. The only knock of any substance came against the Pakistani’s when he blasted 165 at Bridgetown in 1999-2000.
then he had a torrid time in England as he failed to cope up with the bouncy pitches and had a terrible run in Australia. he almost lost his place in the side but a half-century at Sydney removed the axe from his neck.
With the Test average of a mere 30, he needs to improve a lot to become a fine cricketer.
