The West Indies cricketers are currently in training camp at Coolidge Cricket Ground here to prepare for the series.
It is important to get off to a good start. We’re playing against India, so you know the boys are looking forward to it, Cricket West Indies (CWI) quoted Brathwaite as saying.
I think as a team, as batsmen and bowlers, we already have thoughts in our heads about what to expect and that’s why preparation is very important.
It’s all about how you prepare, knowing what our conditions will be, we tend to know how the surfaces will play and we already know the Indian team, so it’s important from that point on mentally to prepare and understand what plans we want to execute both in bowling and batting, so you know it will come down to execution, he added.
Brathwaite will be back in action after a four-month break when the Caribbean team hosts India in Dominica. The second test will be in Trinidad starting July 20.
Brathwaite urged Caribbean cricket fans to come out in large numbers and support the team in the series against India.
Dominica will host the first Test match and we encourage the fans in Dominica to come out and support us, but the boys are looking forward to the first two Test matches of this cycle, said the red-ball specialist.
It’s great, you know it’s the 100th Test match against the West Indies and it’s in Trinidad and you know they love cricket there, so
