No super heroes needed

NZ beat (that’s an understatement) WI by 7 wickets with more than 10 overs to spare after bowling them out for 177 in 44.4 overs. Here is the scorecard.

A quick glance at the NZ team does not show any great names except Stephen Fleming whereas the WI lineup boasts of Lara, Gayle, Chandrapaul and Sarwan.

I am reminded of a recent post by Vivek wherein he has argued that individual heroes will no longer carry the day in ODIs and what really matters is team work.

Is this being vindicated in the WI- NZ match and the other matches that follow?
