West Indies head coach Phil Simmons says he is worried about the struggling form of top-order batsman Shai Hope.

The 26-year-old right-hander is in danger of losing his place in the squad for the final test against England at Old Trafford after failing to make an impact in the historic three-match biosecure series so far.

Hope, who is renowned for his heroics at Headingley back in 2017, scoring twin centuries, is yet to produce for the visitors against England.

“I am concerned. He’s gone four innings without a score and in contrast to how we played over the last four months in the other formats, I am concerned about his form and we will be sitting down and chatting about that over the next couple days,” Simmons told a live zoom post-match press conference after yesterday’s 113-run loss to the Brits.
