Tougher tests

Social Share

West Indies veteran Shivnarine Chanderpaul, and re-energised spinner Sulieman Benn have been singled out by Denesh Ramdin as the outstanding performers in the just ended Test series against Bangladesh.

But the skipper isn’t pretending not to realise how tough the team’s next two assignments, both overseas, will be.

“Those two stood out throughout the series for us,” Ramdin said after West Indies completed a dominant 296-run victory at the Beausejour Stadium in St Lucia which earned the boys in maroon a 2-0 series sweep.

“Kraigg’s double-century and Shiv didn’t get out in the series. They batted and batted, and took the opposition out of the game. It was an all-round team effort. Leon Johnson coming in for his first Test, he batted really well. Kemar Roach bowled exceptionally well in the first innings, and Sulieman Benn put up his hand in the second innings and he bowled long overs so he got the result he wanted.”
