Curtly Ambrose, a former pacer, was overjoyed when the West Indies won the third test match in Grenada. The first two matches ended in a stalemate, prompting widespread criticism of the pitches. The Grenada surface was significantly livelier, and England couldn’t hold off the West Indies’ speed onslaught. As a result, the hosts took a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
In the first innings, England was bowled out for 24 runs, while in the second, they were only bowled out for 120 runs. It showed their batting weaknesses while also highlighting the strength of the Windies bowling attack. Kyle Mayers needed just 5/18 to whittle the opposition down to 120 yards. After a rough stretch in international cricket, Ambrose said the triumph against England meant a lot to the Caribbean people.
“Winning one game convincingly does not imply that we have turned a corner, but it is a start in the right way.” When people are put under duress, they have a tendency to disintegrate. That did not happen in this series,” he went on to say.
Curtly Ambrose’s Series Victory Is A Step In The Right Direction
Curly Ambrose, who has 405 Test wickets, went on to say that the squad’s veteran players, including as Jason Holder, Kemar Roach, and captain Kraigg Brathwaite, are steering the side in the correct path.
“We have men like Kemar Roach (pace bowler) and Jason Holder (all-rounder) leading the way.” They are excellent role models. We put forth a lot of effort in preparation, and it simply carried over into every game, with someone else raising their hand and doing their job,” Ambrose said.
