Bridgetown (Barbados), Oct 17 IANS | 1 year ago

Coach Junior Bennett said he is impressed with the development of several players during the West Indies A team's recent tour of India.


Bennett Wednesday identified opening batsman Kraigg Brathwaite and fast bowler Miguel Cummins as two players "who performed brilliantly" during the month-long tour, reports CMC.

"I was very impressed with young Cummins. He worked really hard and stood up on every occasion," Bennett told WICB Media.

"I believe he has what it takes to move on to the next level and we should really invest in him. He is a really good talent for West Indies cricket."

The West Indies came from behind to beat India 2-1 in the One-day List A series.

However, India A won the one-off T20, while the three-match four-day series ended 1-1.

"The spin bowling was also very good," said Bennett.

"When you look at the stats in the 'Test' matches Nikita Miller bowled over 140 overs and Permaul bowled over 90 overs and they were consistent throughout. Credit to our bowlers, they did exceptionally well on those surfaces."

The team returned to the Caribbean Tuesday.
