West Indian head coach Phil Simmons says only great performances from his batsmen will secure a place on his team when the regional side gets ready to take on New Zealand’ A ‘in a four-day warm-up game starting today.
Simmons made it clear that all the batters on the team are under pressure to perform, especially Jamaican batsmen John Campbell and Jermaine Blackwood who failed to make a significant contribution with the Bat ‘A’ recently in the three-day opening game against New Zealand.
Campbell and Blackwood only made four, respectively. eight runs in an impressive total of 366, scored by the West Indies, with Darren Bravo scoring a fine of 135 while Shamarh Brooks scoring 80, Kraigg Brathwaite 47 and Roston Chase 42.
Simmons says the batters’ results have been good. However, he is looking for more variety in his game as they prepare for an efficient kiwi bowling attack in the two game test series.
« I think it’s about spending time on the crease. I’m not worried that Bravo scored a hundred goals. I look at the time they spend on the fold and how they control their innings. That’s what I’m looking for in this four day game of John and Blackwood, ”said Simmons.
The manager insisted that it wouldn’t be the last chance for Campbell or Blackwood to show off their skills as he believed the abundance of talent on the squad and competition for places would bring the best out of them.
« I don’t know about the last chance. I think it’s a case where everyone is under pressure. With Bravo and Hetmyer we are more in a group of batsmen looking for four or five places. It’s putting pressure on them, and that’s exactly what we want. We need the shows, and when you perform, you will be there. ”
The Trinidadian stated that big partnerships and big hundreds are what he would be looking for in the warm up game from his rackets. However, another key component for him is winning the official top-tier game.
« At the end of the four days, the best that can happen is to win the game, so we can go into the friendly with that kind of success and confidence, » said Simmons.
