Brathwaite urges not to get carried away

West Indies skipper Kraigg Brathwaite said on Wednesday that they didn’t want to look too far ahead as they prepare to take on the hosts in the series-deciding second Test at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium on Thursday.

West Indies won the opening Test in Chattogram in a thrilling manner and are now looking forward to clinching their first away Test series win over Tigers after 2012.
However, the visitors are expected to face a stiff challenge as the wicket is going to spin much more than what happened in the port-city.
“We as a team don’t want to get too far ahead. We have five days of Test cricket to play. We are very happy to have won the first Test,” Brathwaite said.
“We want to buckle down. Victory has meant a lot for us. The guys are very proud of winning the first Test but we look forward to the next five days.
“We got a nice win but we have to start over fresh. We have to buckle down, and can’t be complacent. We have to fight hard again,” he added.
