Taylor - Jamaica want nothing but win

Jamaica Observer article.

Kingston, Jamaica - Jerome Taylor and John Campbell have declared that the team is going into tomorrow's game against the Leeward Islands with one thing in mind, and that is to get maximum points.

The fast bowler strongly believes that his team has a good chance of defeating their opponents.

"The team is very upbeat and looking to go into the game and taking maximum points. It is four days of long and hard cricket and so we are not underestimating any one, but we are taking nothing less than a victory," Taylor told the Jamaica Observer yesterday, moments before departing Sabina Park en route to St Kitts.

Taylor said that he was pleased with his form, but that the team needs to fire in all departments.

"From time to time our strength have been in the bowling, but there are times when the batters come good and the bowling don't click, and so as a team we need to be consistent in every area.

"I am pleased with the way I am bowling and I hope that it stays and I know that it will improve more," he said.

Opening batsman John Campbell also said that the team is on a high and he wants to contribute more to the team.

"The team is bowling and batting good and so we are confident of a victory against the Leewards, who are a good team, but once we apply ourselves and play as a team, then I don't see why we should not come out with maximum points.

"The first game I scored a half-century batting for more than four hours and I want to improve on that. I want to bat as long as possible, take as much time to get in and set myself to get a good score. Once I get a good start I can capitalise on that and make a good contribution to the team," Campbell noted.
