Lloyd: All-rounders will have biggest roles

LON­DON – One of the great­est West In­dies cap­tains of all time, Sir Clive Lloyd, ex­pects all-rounders to play a de­ci­sive role in the up­com­ing ICC Crick­et World Cup.

Sir Clive, who led the Windies to their on­ly two World Cup ti­tles in 1975 and 1979, said with the pitch­es in Eng­land pre­dict­ed to be flat, said he be­lieved the play of those mul­ti-di­men­sion­al play­ers would de­ter­mine the win­ner.

“From Afghanistan to Eng­land, or from In­dia to West In­dies, every team is blessed with top-class all-rounders, that’s why I be­lieve it will be an all-rounders’ World Cup,” Lloyd said

With Windies’s skip­per Ja­son Hold­er cur­rent­ly ranked as the best Test all-rounder in the world and sixth best in ODIs, along with the ex­plo­sive An­dre Rus­sell in the side, Lloyd said he ex­pect­ed the re­gion­al side to give a good show­ing

He said the West In­dies would be con­fi­dent af­ter draw­ing their ODI se­ries with top-ranked Eng­land 2-2 in March

The West In­dies Crick­et Board has brought back the main play­ers who have been do­ing well in dif­fer­ent tour­na­ments around the world. They will try their best

“Dur­ing the last 20-odd years, we lost so many good crick­eters. I think the good crick­eters have again come up with the in­ten­tion of do­ing good,” Lloyd in­sist­ed

The 2019 ICC Crick­et World Cup will run from May 30 un­til Ju­ly 14
