CRICKET: WI to stage training session at Sabina Park this morning

Published:Thursday | June 27, 2013 | 9:05 AM

West Indies cricketers will this morning stage their final training session before the start of the tri-nation series, which bowls off tomorrow at Sabina Park in Kingston.

The tournament, which will be held in Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago, will see each team playing each other twice, with the top two teams advancing to the final.

The Jamaican leg is set to bowl off tomorrow, with the West Indies facing ICC Champions Trophy semi-finalists Sri Lanka.

India, who won the 2013 Champions Trophy at the weekend, is the other team in the tournament.

West Indies Head Coach Ottis Gibson and Captain Dwayne Bravo say they are confident the regional side has the strength to win the series.

Captain Bravo says the West Indies squad includes a lot of match-winners who are capable of leading the Caribbean side to the title.

Coach Gibson says he is expecting the West Indies to use their recent disappointments in the Champions Trophy as motivation to succeed.

The Windies made an early exit from the ICC Champions Trophy in England after rain intervened during their run-chase against South Africa.

The match was ruled a tie under the Duckworth/Lewis method and South Africa advanced to the semi-final courtesy of a better net run rate.
