Kemar Roach and Phil Simmons are both confident about the chances that the West Indies will win against England.
Last time, the West Indies won against England in a Test match series. To date, fast bowler Kemar Roach and coach Phil Simmons have both expressed their confidence that they have a chance to win against England in their upcoming match tour in July.
In a recent statement, Roach said, ‘It's always going to be tough to play in England but I think once you get stuck into them we stand a great chance of beating them. Our plan was always to make it tough for the England batsmen. I think we did that fantastically well. Once you can execute that again here, I don't see any reason why you can't cause trouble and get over the English batsmen’.
Simmons, on the other hand, also remains optimistic about the possible return of Shannon Gabriel on the field since he was enlisted as a reserve player. Should Gabriel make it to the final lineup, then the West Indies will have an addition to their great list of fast bowlers.
‘There's a lot of pressure on the batsmen to perform because the bowling unit have been carrying the Test team for a while now’, Simmons said.
The upcoming West Indies tour of England will be held behind closed doors on July 8 at the Rose Bowl Cricket Ground. The said tour will be comprised of three Test matches. To further understand this format of cricket, head over to Betwala.
