Two-time champions West Indies suffer an unceremonious exit from T20 World Cup

West Indies head coach Phil Simmons opines that the batters have failed to deliver the goods as the two-time champions were knocked out of the T20 World Cup by Ireland on Thursday in Hobart. West Indies opted to bat first in a must-win Super 12 clash in the hope of putting scoreboard pressure on Ireland, but sucummbed to a stranglehold and could only push up to 146/5 in 20 overs, despite hoarding 34 runs in the last three overs. Simmons reckoned the team had not been consistent with the bat even before the showpiece event commenced in Australia.
