Windies ‘bigger threat’ to England
Assistant coach Roddy Estwick believes West Indies are better poised now than three years ago to carve out a positive series result on their proposed tour of England.
On their last tour of the United Kingdom in 2017, the Caribbean side pulled off an astonishing victory in the second Test at Leeds, but suffered heavy defeats in the two other Tests to go down 2-1 in the three-Test series.
However, Estwick said players had gained significant experience since then and with several other players coming through to give the Test squad greater depth, the Windies could prove a serious threat for their higher-ranked opponents.
“For me, I think we might be a better team when we go to England this time,” Estwick said while overseeing training sessions, designed by the Barbados Cricket Association’s head coach Dexter Toppin at Kensington Oval for the Barbadian group selected in the 30-man provisional squad. (CMC)
