Interim West Indies men’s head coach, Andre Coley, has pointed to key elements of the beleaguered side’s batting which he hopes to see developed on next month’s two-Test tour of Zimbabwe.
The Caribbean side’s batsmen struggled on last month’s two-Test campaign in Australia, with captain Kraigg Brathwaite and his debutant left-handed opening partner Tagenarine Chanderpaul the only two to average above 30.
West Indies lost both Tests – the first by 164 runs in Perth and the second by a massive 419 runs after they were dismissed for a historic low of 77 in their second innings.
“Kraigg alluded to this . . . just in terms of the fight that we want to show,” Coley told an online media conference, yesterday.
“The messaging generally would really be around intent to score – batting is about scoring runs. Each batter will go about that in a different fashion and have their own particular style. . .” (CMC)
