Coach Benjamin unhappy despite historic Hurricanes win

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI - Leeward Islands Hurricanes coach Winston K. M. Benjamin has called for more consistency from the unit on the back of a shock innings and four runs defeat over the Barbados Pride in Cricket West Indies 4-Day Championship last week.

Fast bowler Gavin Tonge took nine wickets overall and second innings of 6 for 21 as the Pride were dismissed for 116 in the second innings with an hour to go before the close of play.

The win marked the first for the Hurricanes over Barbados in eight years.

Benjamin, however, believes the team’s execution could have been better.

“We should have bowled them out for less than 100. We gave away 52 runs trying things that we didn’t need to try. If we had executed or been a bit more patient then we could have bowled them out for under that score,” Benjamin told Antigua Observer.

“We need to be consistent and not just for games like this [against Barbados] but for the other games to come and as I said in my [previous] interview, my aim is not to go out and win the competition but to improve the cricket, and when we win then that is a bonus,” he added.
