WEST INDIES coach Ottis Gibson yesterday described the loss of strike bowler Kemar Roach as a “blow” ahead of the team’s Test tour of Bangladesh. Roach, 24, is the West Indies’ most successful bowler in Tests this year, snaring 39 wickets at 22.25 runs apiece in seven matches. He has been sidelined with a knee injury and could be out of action for close to a month. “It’s a blow for us. He’s been an outstanding Test bowler for us in the last 12 months,” Gibson said during the second day of a three-day tune-up match against the Sagicor High Performance Centre at the Three Ws Oval. Gibson is hopeful that the Barbadian pacer, who has 82 wickets in 21 Tests at an average of 27.69, will recover in time for the One-day segment of the tour that follows the two-match Test series.
