“I know this group could do it, it’s all about attitude” – Kraigg Brathwaite on Test Series against Australia

West Indies on Monday (June 27) sealed the Test series 2-0 with a comprehensive 10-wicket triumph against Bangladesh in the second Test at St Lucia.

West Indies came to this series after defeated England 1-0 in a three-match series in the Caribbean soil.

West Indies head coach Phil Simmons said the Test series win over Bangladesh will be a confidence booster as they face a quality Australian team later this year.

“It should give us confidence and we’ve got time to prepare to go to Australia. Australia is always a difficult series, (it) does not matter what team you go down there with, so we have to make sure we prepare well and continue our winning.” Simmons said 

Speaking at the post-match interview, West Indies skipper, Kraigg Brathwaite also talk about consecutive series wins against England and Bangladesh and upcoming Australian Test series.

“It’s good to get wins. Obviously, that gives you confidence. Australia at home is going to be a challenging team but I’ve been there already and I know this group could do it,” he said.

“As I said, it’s all about attitude. It’s not about who you are playing against, it’s about attitude and sticking to the plans as a unit and being tough, especially as batsmen.” He concluded.
