THE BATTING department of the Barbados Pride is the biggest concern ahead of today’s start of the Regional 4-Day cricket match against the Jamaica Scorpions at the 3Ws Oval.
However, head coach Emmerson Trotman believes the return of West Indies opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite will be a major boost to the squad and should help alleviate the issue.
“As far as our batting is concerned, it is necessary to be positive and play with some more intensity.
“The main problem at the moment is that the guys are worried about getting out. They shouldn’t be worried about being out but about scoring big runs, but I’m pretty sure they will do a lot better,” Trotman said during a training session yesterday at Kensington Oval.
“Kraigg is a fantastic player, he brings a lot to the changing room, so the boys are quite happy to see him around. He would ease a lot of pressure on the team because the guys really look up to him as a big performer, so it sets the team up nicely,” he added. (AGB)
