WEST Indies’ pace attack is sufficiently confident of skittling out England in the first Test that their bowlers are arguing over who will be first to bag a five-wicket haul.
The tourists begin the match today as major underdogs but captain Darren Sammy revealed there is no shortage of confidence in his dressing room as they prepare to face the world’s No1 Test team at Lord’s.
“There’s been a lot of discussion in the dressing room about who’s going to put their name on the [honours] board,” said Sammy.
“Kemar [Roach] said he’s going to be the first one; Ravi [Rampaul] said it’s going be him – and I myself think it’s going to be me as well. We left the Caribbean knowing it’s going to be a very difficult challenge. But we also know that if we can play well and put runs on the board we back our bowling attack to get 20 wickets and win a Test match.”
