Give young players time, says Gower

FORMER ENGLAND MASTER BATSMAN David Gower thinks it is important that England be patient with some of its young players, like Barbadian Christopher Jordan.

Gower, one of the leading batsmen of his generation with 8 231 runs in a career spanning 14 years (1978-1992), said that young players need time to develop and made the adjustment to international cricket.

“Chris Jordan is very new to Test cricket. I think he has a lot of promise, because he bowls reasonably well, he can bat and he catches beautifully. But in terms of what his main role is, which is to bowl, and as first change, then he is still learning that part of the game,” he said.

Gower, 57, said it was important that England go on to win this match and complete a series win.
