By India Today Sports Desk: West Indies cricket team captain, Shai Hope, has expressed his determination to lead his team to victory in the final One Day International (ODI) match against India.

In a post-match interview, Hope stated that his team will come hard against India once again in the decider.

“Very satisfied to be honest, like I said in the previous game we want to come back and level the series and we have done it. We gotta win the next game to win the series. The guys are gonna come hard again. We keep speaking about attitude, whenever we are on the field we need to show it,” Hope said in the post match presentation while collecting the player of the match trophy.

The Windies captain anchored his team to victory while chasing 182 runs in Barbados in the 2nd ODI match of the series.

Whenever I contribute to the team, I feel happy. I think when things are difficult to score on this surface, we need to score hard. We need to make the fielders in the deep run and collect the runs.

The West Indies captain also highlighted the importance of replicating successful strategies and maintaining a positive attitude on the field.

“We need to keep repeating it more and more, to start with the new ball it was tough, the bowlers did their job and the batters did the job in the end. We need to replicate our plans and show some good attitude,” the Windies captain concluded.

After being blown away in the first ODI, Windies showed some character, both with the bat and ball. They were helped with India’s experimentation in the middle order which led to the visiting side crumbling for just 181 runs.

In return, West Indies started well and after a mini collapse, Hope, alongside Keacy Carty, saw the hosts home with 6 wickets remaining.
