WEST INDIES’ injury concerns have been allayed. Two days before the opening Test against England tomorrow at Lord’s, coach Ottis Gibson delivered an encouraging progress report.
It came against the background of recent injuries to key fast bowlers Fidel Edwards, Kemar Roach and Ravi Rampaul.
“Everybody pulled up okay. It all goes back to managing niggles,” Gibson said.
“Kemar twisted his ankle at Northants. He’s been treated twice a day for the last couple of days. He had a little bowl today [yesterday], about six overs, pretty controlled. . . no complaints, so at this stage, he’s doing okay.
“Ravi’s was just a twisted neck from sleeping badly or just staying up too late watching TV or playing Playstation. He’s fine and Fidel is fine also. Everything looks all set.”
