CRICKET: Chanderpaul backs Windies to bounce back against SA
West Indies batsman Shiv Chanderpaul has expressed confidence in his team’s ability to bounce back against hosts South Africa in the second Test match, starting on Boxing Day, Friday.
The match will be played at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth.
West Indies suffered their heaviest ever defeat in South Africa, when they were humiliated by an innings and 220 runs in the opening Test.
Chanderpaul believes the Caribbean side has players who can step up.
In an effort to boost their scoring the West Indies will be expecting much from Chanderpaul and Marlon Samuels, who was the highest run-scorer on their last tour to South Africa.
The match is scheduled to start at 3:30 Friday morning Jamaica Time.
