RAJKOT, India – On the eve of the first Test match versus India in Rajkot, the WINDIES are focused on playing a patient game against the host and number one-ranked Test team, India.
The WINDIES arrived in India a week ago and has since played a two-day warm-up match against a BCCI XI which ended in a draw. The team had solid batting performances from centurion Sunil Ambris, with half-centuries from Vice-Captain Kraigg Brathwaite and Shane Dowrich. Devendra Bishoo also had a decent bowling spell, picking up three wickets.
WINDIES Captain Jason Holder complimented the patient style of play during the warm-up match, indicating that the team will remain focused and play a complete and patient game without looking at the names in the Indian team’s line-up.
Holder indicated that the team is ready for the challenge and that they all share the same mindset, of solid performances and playing good cricket.
