CRICKET: Assistant Windies coach tells team not to panic

Published: Thursday December 12, 2013 | 12:37 pm Comments 0

Assistant coach Stuart Williams said the third day of the second Test against New Zealand will be very crucial for West Indies.

Kirk Edwards scored his second straight half-century of the series and Marlon Samuels his first in six innings, but another top-order batting slump left the Windies under a cloud after the rain-marred the second†day.

Edwards, once more opening the batting, hit 55 and Samuels was unbeaten on an even 50, as the visitors, replying to the New Zealandersí first innings total of 441, reached 158 for four at the close on Thursday.

The assistant coach said the Windies should not begin to panic adding that the remaining batsmen have a job to do by taking things session by session and giving the side the best chance of being competitive.
