WI savour success

West Indies’ cricketers are savouring the success of a series victory over long-standing rivals England, but captain Kraigg Brathwaite is urging his players to raise the bar and remain hungry for success.

The Caribbean side captured the Vivian Richards And Ian Botham Trophy, the new symbol of supremacy against the English, with an emphatic ten-wicket win in the deciding third Test at the National Cricket Stadium in Grenada yesterday.

The result gave West Indies a 1-0 win in the three-Test series after the first two Tests – at the Vivian Richards Cricket Ground in Antigua and Kensington Oval in Barbados – were drawn.

The Windies shrugged off the unkind slur in the English media describing them as “a mediocre side” and left the visitors to ponder their immediate future on another winter trip that has not gone to plan. (AR)
