MANCHESTER – Off-spinning all-rounder Roston Chase believes West Indies can put their recent modest batting form behind them and excel in next month’s three-Test cricket series against England but will need to first rediscover their self-belief.

West Indies have struggled in recent times to post competitive totals, but Chase said yesterday that players needed to back their ability and adopt the right mentality if they were to see an improvement in their fortunes.

“It’s fair to say we haven’t had the best time as a top order but some of the guys, I think, we’ve played 30 or more Test matches. So the guys have that experience and the know-how – how to get runs at this level – so we’re ever improving,” the right-hander said via a Zoom media conference from the team’s quarantine at Old Trafford.

“It’s just for us to get that confidence and that belief back in our batting in the top order. I think we’ll be fine because the guys know that we have the ability. . . ” (CMC)
