In four days’ time when the West Indies bow into action against New Zealand ‘A’ at the Queenstown Events Centre in Queenstown, New Zealand, fans should expect to see evidence of some of the areas that head coach Phil Simmons has had the players concentrating on since they arrived in New Zealand.
The West Indies were given a special dispensation to train while they were isolation but have now began more intensive training as they ramp up their preparations for their three T20 Internationals and two Test-series that begins on November 27.
Phil Simmons revealed that there are specific areas which the team has been focused on that will hopefully translate in better performances in what is expected to be a challenging tour.
“The big areas are consistency, especially in the bowling and understanding situations, especially in the batting,” Simmons said.
We have situations when we have been in control of games and people give away their wickets, so things like that are the main things that we are concentrating on now.”
Overall, things have been going well Simmons said, explaining that while some days have been cold there have also been warm days which they players have enjoyed.
“When its warm, West Indies teams tend to thrive so they’ve been very good. They’re enjoying it,” he said. (Sportsmax)
