Martin ready for Pakistan

Bridgetown, BarbadosNew West Indies leg-spinner Anthony Martin has already given a lot of thought to how he will approach the upcoming matches against Pakistan. The 28-year-old Policeman from Antigua is a clever operator and is planning how best to utilise his skills when he comes up against the visitors.

The lion-hearted Martin was impressive for the West Indies A Team in England last year, and was brilliant for the Leeward Islands in the WICB 50 Over Tournament, when he took a superb hat-trick and led them to a share of the title.
