Clive Lloyd has led the West Indian cricket team to two World Cup triumphs (1975 and 1979). The former West Indian cricketer feels that the Men in blue are currently in selection dilemma. The team encountered their first defeat in the tournament against the hosts by 31 runs and made two changes in the team in the clash against Bangladesh. Several injuries in the squad have also compelled the team to make changes in their playing 11.

Clive Lloyd wrote in his column for ICC that, “England played the right kind of game against them by attacking the spinners and they need to strengthen their batting lower down the order.”

Lloyd praised the two teams Australia, who are already qualified for the semi-finals and India, who will most likely join the Aussies by winning one of their two remaining games of the tournament. He said that they have been the two standout teams for him at this World Cup. They have understood the conditions better than any of the others and have strolled through. “The wickets in this tournament have been excellent... Australia and India are at home on them and that will be so important when it will come to the knock out games.” He added.

Talking about the Windies’ 23 run defeat against the Lankans, Clive mentioned that they have talent with the bat and they team needs to learn from their mistakes and rectify them.
