After Test series against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, for the year 2021, West Indies are unbeaten in Test matches so far. The team led by Kraigg Brathwaite has shown improvements, and the results are proving.

In the West Indies 2-0 Bangladesh series, batting was led by newcomers Kyle Mayers, Nkrumah Bonner, and Joshua Da Silva. Fast track to the Caribbean, where West Indies played Sri Lanka. Captain Brathwaite led from the front with the bat, while Mayers, Bonner, and company complimented the skipper.
The patience shown by the West Indies batsmen was different and, for the first time since 2012, five batters from the West Indies team averaged over 50. Former West Indies captain Sarwan said: “I ‘ n believe the fact that these guys are applying themselves. in the batting for a long time is a very good sign. Obviously, Test cricket is over five days, and it’s important, when you’re batting, that you try to spend as much time in the crease, and I think they’ve shown that. ”
Had “Patience” been the name of a batsman in the West Indies Test team, he certainly would have been Brathwaite’s captain. The right wing, who was the “match player” in the second and final Tests, with scores of 126 and 85, fought for 813 minutes, the most by an Indian in a Test.
“Of course Kraigg we know what he can do and hopefully the rest of the men (who would) continue to qualify themselves and spend so much time in the crease,” Sarwan said in a Radio Program Sean Devers recently.
In that Bangladesh series, Mayers hit the charts with 261 runs in two Tests, including a brilliant 210 on the first run that led West Indies to a historic win. Bonner made 231 runs in that series while keeper batsman Da Silva kicked 174 runs.
In the recent series in Sri Lanka, Brathwaite led the West Indies batting with 237 runs, while Mayers scored 201 runs, while Bonner, who scored his first century, had 144 runs in three overs. Jason Holder (138), Rahkeem Cornwall (134) and Da Silva (102) were the other batsmen who applied themselves when given a chance at the Sri Lanka Tests. (Brandon Corlette)
