Former West Indies captain Brian Lara has underlined the need for the team’s red-ball cricketers to work on their “mental approach” to the game.
Lara’s views come two days prior to the start of West Indies’ two-test home series against India, with both him and Ramnaresh Sarwan part of the side’s pre-series camp in Antigua.
The 50 year old Lara emphasized that the 2-1 series triumph against England at home earlier this year was an accomplishment that bodes well for the team heading into their first assignment in the world test championship.
Lara further said he was impressed with the “intensity”, skills-set and technical acumen of the current line of West Indies’ test players, including the 13-man squad for the games against India, which he admitted did play a part in his decision to get involved.
At the camp, lira is understood to have shared his expertise with the players on several aspects of the game.
