Blog by Gulu Ezekiel: Are the Windies Back?
by
Sep 18, 2006
With the Champions Trophy and the World Cup the next two big events on the cricket calendar, it looks like the West Indies are peaking at the right time.

Despite their shock loss in the opening match of the ongoing DLF tri-series in Kuala Lumpur, the fact that the former world champions are through to the final even before their final game must rank as a huge surprise.

Who would have predicted before the tournament that India and Australia would be fighting it out for the second berth in the final?

Following their victories against Zimbabwe and then India at home and despite the fact that even as defending champions in next month's Champions Trophy they have to qualify for the tournament proper, it looks like the Caribbean are shaping up as the favourites to retain their title next month in India.

India have their work cut out at KL. Theoretically even if they lose to the Windies on Wednesday, they still have a chance of reaching the final if they beat Australia in the final group tie on Friday.

But to do so they would have to win by a whopping margin in order to sneak through on better run-rate. Assuming the rain keeps away, that still looks highly unlikely. So the next two matches are looming as do-or-die ties for India.
