Brathwaite getting ready for England

NORTH SOUND, Antigua – West Indies opener Kraigg Brathwaite says he is quietly confident of doing well against England as the home team started their preparations for the upcoming three-Test Series.

The 22-year-old was speaking as the Windies started their preparations at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground on Monday.

The Barbados batsman has been in terrific form scoring three centuries in the recently concluded inaugural WICB Professional Cricket League (PCL) and a hard fought century against South Africa in the second Test at Port Elizabeth last year.

“I am obviously looking forward to this home series against England. England is a tough opposition so you know you got to work hard,” said Brathwaite, who scored three test centuries last year.

“And in terms of my form I am coming from first class cricket feeling quite confident and just keep believing in myself and carry that into this series”.

Brathwaite’s recent centuries include 102 and 112 against Guyana Jaguars and 106 against South Africa last year.

The West Indies continued their preparation with a full training session at the Sir Vivian Richards Cricket Ground yesterday morning under the supervision of new head coach Phil Simmons, the former West Indies allrounder.

“I think we had a good practice session. All the guys enjoyed it,” he said.

“The new coach seems pretty cool and relaxed and I enjoyed the first day working with him. I thought it was a good day for the team.”

The last time West Indies and England played a test series in the Caribbean, the regional side emerged victorious one-nil.

“It would be phenomenal (winning the series),” said Brathwaite.

“Obviously the team is a little bit young but we have some good experienced guys and coming out on top would mean a lot for the region and I believe the guys can do it”.
