I feel safe in Karachi, says Walton

KARACHI: West Indies have played and lost back-to-back Twenty20 games against Pakistan  at the National Stadium immediately after landing in Karachi.

Jet-lagged and low on experience, the visitors have shown no spine in two big defeats against the home team.

But their big-hitting opener Chadwick Walton did try to put up some resistance. He hit a quickfire 40 in the second T20 International on Monday night but failed to stop the rampaging Pakistanis from recording an 82-run win.

Walton hoped that things would be better for his team in the final game on Tuesday as the West Indians look to avoid a whitewash.

“There's always motivation for the fellows because we are playing for the West Indies — obviously — and it's better to lose a series 2-1 than to lose a series 3-0,” he told reporters.

The issue of security fears has been the main talking point before and during the three-match series but Walton said he had so safety concerns.

“I think I'm pretty much safe in Pakistan … I'm satisfied with the security,” he said.

“The crowd in Karachi is very energetic, which is a good sight for everyone.”
