Desmond Haynes: Nkrumah Bonner’s efforts pleased us greatly
“It was a hard-fought first match in Antigua, and we decide to stick with the same 13 players for the second match in Barbados,” said lead selector Desmond Haynes, explaining why no changes were made ahead of the Barbados Test.
“Bonner demonstrated how you should play, and we were very please with how he play in the first and second innings.” “It was difficult work for all of the bowlers, and we were very please with how they stick to the task,” he added.
Meanwhile, it is unclear whether the West Indies will make any changes to their playing XI. While Kyle Mayers may be considered for the middle order, Anderson Phillip is likely to continue warming the benches after the pacers performed well in the previous match. Meanwhile, England is expected to present a revised strategy in Barbados.
