CRICKET: Ambrose backing West Indies bowling attack
West Indies bowling consultant Curtly Ambrose believes a Sheldon Cottrell-led attack can compete with the top-ranked South Africa attack in the upcoming Test series, which starts in Centurion on Wednesday.
The Jamaican left-arm quick bowler took five wickets in six overs against a South African Invitational last week in a tour match at Willowmoore Park and is a frontrunner to open the bowling for the tourists.
Despite a Test ranking of eighth, ahead of only Zimbabwe and Bangladesh, Ambrose predicted his side could compete with the hosts.
West Indies have had a poor record against South Africa.
They have lost ten of 12 previous Tests in South Africa, managing just one win and one draw.
