Consistency is the key, says Hope

BARBADOS’ young batting prodigy Shai Hope says he will use his outstanding performances in the just concluded Regional Super50 to kickstart his career for West Indies.

The 23-year-old right-hander struck 101 in Saturday’s final to help power Barbados Pride to the Super50 title with a 59-run victory over Jamaica Scorpions at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.

Hope finished the tournament as one of the leading run-scorers with 482 runs and two centuries, following his 125 in the semi-final against Leeward Islands Hurricanes last Thursday.

“I just have to stay consistent, consistent in front and behind the stumps. [I have to] score as many runs as possible and take the chances that come to me,” Hope said in reference to his international career. (CMC/EZS)
