Tough England tour in summer

CHIEF SELECTOR Courtney Browne has warned that West Indies should brace for a difficult tour of England this summer, but says the young regional side should use the experience as a learning curve in building for the future.

West Indies face the hosts in a three-Test tour starting in August. They have not won a series in England in 29 years and have lost all but one of the seven overall within the last 17 years.

With limited-overs series against minnows Afghanistan next month and India in July, Browne said it was hoped these outings could provide some momentum for the Windies ahead of the England trip.

“We’re looking for our guys to do very well against Afghanistan,” said the former West Indies wicketkeeper, who took over his current role from the legendary Clive Lloyd last June. (CMC)
