Windies on upward curve - Lloyd

St John’s, Antigua - The former legendary captain of the all-conquering West Indies team, Clive Lloyd says that he is convinced that West Indies cricket is on the upward curve.

“I have seen the signs, I am seeing the ‘green shoots’ in players like Kirk Edwards and Andre Russell who have come on to the scene and done well and shown that they are quality players who can compete against any team around the world,” Lloyd observed.

He said that he can see a core of about 15 to 20 young players who he believes has the quality to take West Indies cricket forward.

Dhaka, Bangladesh -- Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo grabbed 5-90 as the West Indies trounced Bangladesh by 229 runs in the second and final Test match at the Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Wednesday to wrap up the series 1-0.

Bangladesh, who were set an improbable victory target of 508 runs, were shot out for 278 soon after lunch on the fifth day. Bishoo, who turns 26 on Sunday, returned with career-best figures in only his seventh Test. He ended with match figures of 8-152 and now has 32 wickets in seven Test matches since his debut in May.
