Arthur backs players to put up a ruthless show to win St. Lucia ODI against Windies
Melbourne: Australian cricket coach Mickey Arthur has told his players to put up a ruthless show to defeat the West Indies in the fourth one-dayer in St Lucia.
Arthur is dissatisfied with what he called fundamental blunders being made by players in the five-game series, which is currently locked at 1-1.
He said a repeat performance against the Windies would not be good enough.
``We`ve made some bad mistakes in every game. We probably haven`t done the basics well enough and we haven`t done the one-percenters well enough. They [West Indies] seem to have a lot of spirit and they`re really up for the fight, but we`ve certainly missed opportunities to be 2-1 ahead,” The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Arthur, as saying.
The West Indies have made only one change to their squad for the final two one-dayers, naming Adrian Barath in place of opener Kieron Powell.
