Keemo Paul admitted it has been a tough time for the Windies as they have lost both the Test and ODI series, but said they are determined to win the T20I series

West Indies pacer Keemo Paul informed that they will rely on the their pace bowling strength, and their power hitting in the powerplay segment, to clinch the third and final T20I, and the series, against host Bangladesh Saturday.

The Windies took part in their practice session at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium prior to their last match of the tour. 

Paul admitted it has been a tough time for the Windies as they have lost both the Test and ODI series, but said they are determined to win the T20I series.

“I think it is a totally different wicket in Dhaka compared to Sylhet. We have sorted out some plans, and we are confident for the last game. Our main strength is our fast-bowling department. So we will continue with that. Also we need to do well in the powerplay. We have a plan for that and hopefully, it is going to work for us in the game,” Paul said to the media Friday.

“I think it has been a tough series for us. We have lost the ODI series. But coming into the T20I series, we still have confidence. It is just about going to the middle and executing the plans properly to win the series. We need to give 110% [Saturday] to look for a victory,” he added.
