Patience Game

Head coach Darren Sammy has urged his batsmen to pay special attention to the new-ball period but believes there will be “plenty of runs on offer” once they can get through that challenging stage of the game.

The 9 a.m. starts for the ICC World Cup Qualifiers have seen bowlers dominate with the new ball in seam-friendly conditions. However, batters flourished once the game progressed, and Sammy said West Indies possessed the required skills to negate the new-ball threat.

“We knew it. Anywhere in the world, a nine o’clock start will pose a challenge with the new ball to the batters,” Sammy explained ahead of West Indies’ fixture against Nepal today.
