Coley points to way forward

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)
