WI ‘starting from scratch’ before Pakistan Test series

Popular News

West Indies and Pakistan commence a two-Test series at Sabina Park in Jamaica on Thursday with head coach Phil Simmons concerned about the readiness of the home players for what is expected to be a formidable challenge from talented but mercurial opponents.

"A lot of the players said they didn't get any work done in their home territories before this camp and the four-day game," said the former West Indies all-rounder following a four-day warm-fixture ahead of the opening encounter.

Meanwhile, on the back of four consecutive Test wins, including convincing successes over the same South Africans on home soil, Pakistan would not appear to be burdened by similar concerns.
