West Indies cricket

West Indies players need county experience

Carlyle Laurie

West Indies offspinner Lance Gibbs has urged more of the current team to play county cricket in England to help revive their fortunes in Test cricket. Speaking to Sam Sheringham from bbc.co.uk, Gibbs said that a county stint would help younger cricketers improve.

"All of our great players have had exposure in English cricket, whether it is league or county, where the ball swings and swerves," Gibbs said. “They put their games together in foreign conditions and became successful. These young players have never had that. In English conditions, anybody could pick up a ball and make something happen with it and our players need to learn how to deal with that."
