Stand-in captain Giovante Depeiza says West Indies Under-19s still need to make critical improvements if they are to go deep into the ICC Under-19 World Cup.
The home side rebounded from their loss to Australia Under-19s last Friday to trounce Scotland Under-19s by seven wickets in St Kitts on Monday but Depeiza said greater efficiency in the key areas of batting and bowler was required.
The home side bundled out the Scots for a paltry 95 in the 36th over with fast bowler Shiva Sankar grabbing three for 17 to earn Man-of-the-Match honours, and left-arm spinner Anderson Mahase (2-16) and off-spinner Onaje Amory (2-26) taking two wickets apiece.
Sankar grabbed the first three wickets to fall to reduce Scotland to 29 for three in the ninth over, a position from which the innings never recovered.
“I think we bowl in partnerships really well. We have a good bunch of guys here, we feed off each other, it was really great.”
He added: “Coming from a loss, I think that is a great performance there so it is just about building and continuing and I’m just really happy with the performance today and the win.”
West Indies Under-19s face Sri Lanka Under-19s in their third match here Friday.
