JAMAICA GLEANER – Middle-order batsman Darren Bravo says the series of defeats suffered by the West Indies in recent times is as a result of the batsmen’s lack of confidence.
Bravo scored a century in the West Indies innings and 212-run loss to the Aussies in the first Test on the heels of a crushing defeat at the hands of a Rookie Cricket Australia 11.
In October, the Caribbean cricketers were beaten two-nil by Sri Lanka in a Test series, where Bravo was one of only two batsmen to score 50s.
“It’s just a matter of confidence,” Bravo said.
“Coming in to this series, most of our batsmen didn’t really have that confidence. We lost the series in Sri Lanka; we lost the practice game as well in Brisbane. It’s a matter of confidence.”
