Roach calls for consistency and positivity ahead of the Test series – News Room Guyana

Consistency and a positive approach are key elements for the West Indies to do well in the upcoming two Test matches against Bangladesh. That’s the view of fast bowler Kemar Roach.

Speaking at a Virtual press conference this week, the experienced Roach touched on what the Caribbean side needed to excel in what he considered ‘difficult conditions.’

“Hopefully so,” was Roach’s response about whether a different West Indies would reach the Test series after the ODI players were hammered 3-0.

“The One Day series didn’t go as we would have liked, but we have to understand that it was a very young team, a lot of inexperience in that team, so it was just a learning curve for those guys.”

After several first-choice ODI players opted out of the series due to COVID-19 concerns and injuries, a second-string side meant nine players received their first 50-over match.

Roach continued: “For the Probation team I’m sure a couple of guys have been here before, so we know what to expect. I expect the lads to go out there and give a better showing, give better fights and obviously try to win some West Indies games. ”

With Bangladesh riding high on the success of the ODI series, Roach believes West Indies must be positive in implementing plans.

“Obviously coming to Bangladesh is always a difficult journey, so it means we’re positive and trying to execute our plans as best we can. It’s about us all going out there, giving it the best shot and putting on a good show. “

The Test matches begin on February 3 and 11.
