WI vs UAE; Kevin Sinclair dedicates Player-of-the-Match award to his grandfather

West Indies continued their brilliant run in the absence of their regular captain, Shai Hope, as they emphatically completed a comprehensive 3-0 whitewash over the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with a four-wicket win in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) in Sharjah.

Friday’s match was special for Kevin Sinclair, who also marked his international return with figures of 4 for 24 as West Indies swept UAE 3-0 in Sharjah.

Carlos Brathwaite, who was on TV commentary, noted that Sinclair is now getting his off-break to grip and turn more than he did in the past. This has, in turn, made his slider more effective and put him in West Indies or West Indies A contention across formats.

“We were in a bit of a bother, so my thing was just to keep it simple and keep it as tight as possible,” Sinclair said. “Getting a breakthrough as well was really good for me.”

Sinclair credited former Guyana allrounder and coach Esuan Crandon for his recent progress. During the Headley-Weekes tri-series, Sinclair also benefitted from working with Nikita Miller.

“As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, Esuan Crandon,” Sinclair said.
