Tino Best laments lack of team support
RETIRED WEST INDIES fast bowler Tino Best has lamented the lack of support he got from most of his teammates when he made his Test debut against Australia at Kensington Oval in 2003.
Best made the revelation in his autobiography Mind the Windows, which is now available by pre-order, saying he felt very lonely in his maiden Test.
“It was my first big international match and I felt lonely. I felt totally on my own out there,” the outspoken Best wrote.
“How can this be right? The Aussies were a good – no, great – side. That was one problem, but the lack of support from my teammates was a bigger one. I know we were 2-0 down in the series, which didn’t help, but no one said anything,” claimed Best. (EZS)
