“We have to play ten days of hard cricket,” Kraigg Brathwaite lays out a road map for his team

Kraigg Brathwaite addressed a press conference ahead of the first test against Australia. He stated that the plan is in motion for the game. Brathwaite wants his batters to bat as long as possible. He believes that would be the key to these conditions.

“We want to bat [for] 100 overs, the main focus is to have discipline,” Brathwaite said. “We have batsmen that can get on with it, so it’s not to stop them. It’s for them to do the processes throughout the entire innings. It’s not to change anyone’s game”

“I think batting time is always great to have in Test cricket… to believe they can do it. We know Australia is a superior team. We have to play ten days of hard cricket, that’s our main focus.”

Kraigg Brathwaite further added that he and the team understand the importance of test cricket. Moreover, he revealed that the team wants to do well in order to encourage more youngsters to join the game in the future.

“We know Test cricket is real cricket. As a team, we want to do well for the Caribbean, and want youngsters to play Test cricket for West Indies”

“Obviously we were great in the past, and we use it as motivation to get to that level. If we stick together as a group, we can improve and get to those great levels.”
