Windies girls ready for Sri Lanka

Cave Hill, Barbados -- The West Indies women’s cricketers have been putting in the work at a camp at the Sagicor High Performance Centre with the target of bettering Sri Lanka in the upcoming eight-match series.

Coach Sherwin Campbell expressed great satisfaction with the camp where the emphasis has been on the batting in view of dealing with the expected slow bowling from the Asian team.

Shane to create history at home

Roseau, Dominica — Shane Shillingford is set to create history on Monday when he becomes the first Dominican to play a Test match on home soil.  The tall off-spinner bowled well against the Australians on his comeback to international cricket in Trinidad last week and is expected to retain his place in the team for the all-important third and final Digicel Test at his home ground.

Fudadin arrives with confidence

Roseau, Dominica — It has been a long journey from the playing field at the Rose Hall Cricket Club to the West Indies team, but Assad Fudadin has made that journey and now he is looking to take more strides forward.

The confident left-hander had his first day among his new team-mates in the West Indies camp on Saturday, as the Windies prepared for the all-important third Digicel Test against Australia at Windsor Park. First ball on Monday is 10 am (9 am Jamaica Time).

Sammy’s bravery rattled Aussies

PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, CMC - Australia captain Michael Clarke admitted he was worried about losing the second Test against West Indies, especially after the way his opposite number Darren Sammy set about the run chase.

Sammy was unbeaten on a cameo 30 from 26 balls when persistent rain ended the Windies’ pursuit of 215 for victory and forced a draw at Queen’s Park Oval. West Indies were 53 for two when the game was called off.
