West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard said failing to execute their plans has been the story of his team as it went down by 67 runs in the third T20I against India to lose the series 1-2. Batting first, India amassed a huge 240 for 3, In reply, West Indies could manage only 173 for 8. "They scored 240. I thought we didn't execute as we wanted. Yes, they got off to a good start but we got a couple of wickets where we got back into the game. But when we came back in that scenario we didn't execute properly. That has been the story this series in terms of where we need to improve," Pollard told reporters. Despite losing the series, Pollard looked to pick up the positives. "I thought as a batting unit throughout the series, we have been consistent. Again scores of 200, 170, 170-odd, has been a must for us as a team in the last 12-18 months or so. An again positive step in the right direction," he said.
