SOUTHAMPTON – Stylish right-hander Shamarh Brooks yesterday reiterated the importance of the West Indies batsmen pulling their weight in the three-Test series against England starting Wednesday at the Ageas Bowl.
The team’s batting has developed a notorious reputation for being unpredictable and is expected to come under the microscope in often difficult English conditions, against experienced seamers James Anderson and Stuart Broad.
“The guys have been working very, very hard. We know the English bowling attack is a good one [but] once we bat well, I think we have a very good chance,” said Brooks, who has played three Tests since making his debut a year ago.
“Spending time at the crease will be key and as long as we apply ourselves, spend some time out there, it will get easier. We need as a batting unit to stand up in this series and make the difference.” (CMC/EZS)
