ROACH WARNS WINDIES

SEAMER. – Kemar Roach has warned West Indies against complacency as they prepare for their two-Test series against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo which gets underway on Saturday.

The West Indies are ranked number eight in the ICC Test rankings while Zimbabwe languish at number 10, and are without a Test win in four years The Chevrons have also never beaten West Indies in a Test, having lost six of eight previous meetings, but Roach labelled them a dangerous side especially in home conditions.

“We must not get complacent. We’re in Zimbabwe. Yes they’re under us but I believe they’re a very good team,” he argued.

“They have some very good players, some good experienced players – they’ve been playing for a while — and they’re in home conditions so they know the conditions better than us. I think once we go out there with that same mentality we had in the second Test in England, I think we’ll do a very good job.”

In that second Test at Headingley in August, West Indies produced an astonishing performance to trounce the hosts by five wickets, after chasing down 322 on the final day.
