Pride looking to clear Jaguars hurdle
COACH Emmerson Trotman is delighted to have Test fast bowler Kemar Roach back in the Barbados Pride team.
But Trotman says the team will have to improve their overall game if they are to beat five-time defending champions Guyana in the second round West Indies Regional Four-day Championship starting today.
Speaking to NATION SPORT shortly after the squad commenced a long training session at Kensington Oval, yesterday, Trotman said he was quietly confident the team would rebound from their three-wicket opening-round loss to the Windward Islands Volcanoes in St Vincent.
“The boys are upbeat inspite of the loss in St Vincent. We are confident we will do well against Guyana. We fell down in three areas in St Vincent. We didn’t bat well enough, we didn’t bowl or execute well enough and we have to improve on our fielding.
“We have addressed those areas and I am confident fans will see a much improved performance over the next few days. I am not worried about Guyana. We will keep an eye on one or two individuals but we have to make sure we outplay them. Pound for pound our boys are on par with them,” Trotman asserted.
