England skipper Joe Root has said, England batsmen must prepare well if they are to get the better of a “formidable” West Indies bowling attack in the 3 test series next month.
West Indies will be banking heavily on their pace attack in England to defend the Wisden Trophy which they won after triumphing 2-1 on home soil in the 2019 series.
England could not afford to lower their guard against an attack which featured 3 bowlers Jason Holder, Kemar Roach and Shannon Gabriel who trio are among the top 20 in official test rankings, Joe Root said
Root said that “We are very aware of the skill West Indies have and what they will bring to this series,” “One thing that stood out was how formidable their bowling attack can be. It is really important we prepare well and we are ready for all of that.” He said
Jason Holder is also the top ranked test all-rounder, followed by England’s Ben Stokes, and West Indies head coach Phil Simmons has predicted their rivalry would light up the series.
Joe Root further said that “Jase is one of the most well-respected guys in international cricket,” “He took the job at a young age and we are starting to see him at the peak of his career, “He comes across as a very good bloke. I am looking forward to chatting to him from a social distance.”
