Ban vs WI, 2020-21 – Kraigg Brathwaite and Co ready with ‘specific plans’ to counter Bangladesh spinners


The stand-in Test captain says they reviewed their 2018 defeat to find out where they could improve

A day after coach Phil Simmons raised optimism for the West Indies ODI side, Test captain Kraigg Brathwaite said the side has learnt from the mistakes made during their 2018 tour to Bangladesh.

Brathwaite’s own miserable form in that series – just 22 runs in the two Tests – was one of the reasons why the visitors capitulated so easily. With the home side having their full complement of spinners available this time too, and West Indies having an even more inexperienced side, there will be even more responsibility on Brathwaite. He hasn’t had the best of times recently too, having made just 55 runs in two Tests in New Zealand Tests last month.

Brathwaite wants to lead by example and set a foundation as a batsman, the key to which, he said, would be balance at the crease.
