Colombo: West Indies captain Darren Sammy has conceded that his team must improve on bowling in the decisive ICC World Twenty20 Group B match against Ireland on Monday.
The West Indies lost by nine wickets on the Duckworth-Lewis method to Group winners Australia on Saturday. The Australians, in pursuit of 192 to win, blasted 100 for one off only 9.1 overs when rain intervened.
Sammy said it was unfortunate that rains proved a crucial factor in the outcome.
"I think rain played its part, otherwise it would have been a cracker of a game. The build-up was very exciting and I think both teams did deliver, but it was unfortunate that rain came when it did. We thought we were still in it. They still needed nine an over and they had to keep going."
Sammy added: "It's unfortunate that weather played a part but that's something we have to get over. We are now looking forward to the next game against Ireland.
"We back ourselves to set targets and I think we did that. It's good we achieved our first target with the bat, put lots of runs on the board.
