Ottis Gibson hoping for win before leaving England cricket

Ottis Gibson hoping for win before leaving England cricket

FORMER TRINIDAD and Tobago and West Indies wicket- keeper/batsman Deryck Murray has refuted claims made by ex-TT and WI captain, and batting legend, Brian Lara, that the regional teams of the past did not at times play within the spirit of the game.

This match is England's last Test before they begin the defence of the Ashes in Australia in November.

Now the reliable close-catcher and often dogged tailender is on the brink of becoming just the sixth bowler and only the third paceman, after West Indies' Courtney Walsh and Australia's Glenn McGrath, to take 500 Test wickets.

"As for having a big effect on cricket, I'm very glad about it. I was getting ready for some more embarrassment". He flicked the ball down the leg side and Jeffrey Dujon dived and collected.

Like England their top-order has a number of players who could be seen as passengers but coach Stuart Law will be hoping that persistence pays off as it did with the younger of the Hope brothers. The umpire wasn't taking him on but he kept going and going and eventually he stuck his finger up and gave Bailey out.

"England sort of lost faith in the game".

In the last Investec Test Match of the 2017 summer, the series is evenly poised at 1-1 after the Windies hit back from a heavy defeat at Edgbaston to record victory in dramatic fashion at Headingley.

"As a West Indian, I was truly embarrassed".

One of those came before play on the final day. "It is very important for the guys coming through and it is important it is someone who can prepare them for playing Test cricket".

Lara also suggested that such gamesmanship actually damaged Caribbean cricket in the long run.

"Now we've reached Lord's - the home of cricket - and everyone is excited and talking about what could be a great end to the series".

'But he doesn't know the group of players, he doesn't even know me.

"Test match cricket has a strong, consistent and passionate following across England and Wales and the seven summer Tests, starting with the Pakistan matches, are sure to attract good crowds. But that didn't happen".

The global fixture list announced by the England and Wales Cricket Board also confirms there will, as expected, be no day-night Test next year.
