W.I. Captain shows more spark – Urges Team To To Be Flexible
“You have to be flexible and leave options open, I’m sure there are times when you will have to promote batters who are more suitable to the situation, there are likely to be changes in terms of the batting order,” Sarwan told journalists after the West Indies final practice session at the Wanderers yesterday ahead of their big opening encounter with host South Africa.
“I think we have a very good chance, we haven’t only played well in the warm up games (v Kenya and New Zealand) but we played well in England and it will give us a lot of confidence if we continue to play the way we have been playing, we have a very rounded team with a lot of all rounders mixed with batters and in this form of the game you need those players who are all rounders,” Sarwan reasoned.
Another vital factor will be the performance of his fast bowlers up front. While there has been much discussion and new strategies being applied to this newest form of the game, Sarwan believes the basic principles must still weigh heavily.
“It is very important for us as a young team to give a good account of ourselves in this tournament,” Sarwan said.
