West Indies Tour of England 2020
West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach says he wants to get his hands on the Wisden Trophy again and will be going all out to defeat England in the upcoming three-Test Series. Roach was the Man-of-the-Series with 18 wickets in three matches in last year’s sensation win on home turf and is “ready to go again” when the first Test bowls off on July 8.

While speaking to journalists from around the world via Zoom link he said that while the personal goal is to reach 200 Test wickets, the overall aim is winning for West Indies.

The West Indies squad will live, train and play in a “bio-secure” environment during the seven weeks of the tour, as part of the comprehensive medical and operations plans to ensure player and staff safety. The bio-secure protocols will restrict movement in and out of the venues, so the selection panel has also named a list of reserve players who will travel to train and help prepare the Test squad and ensure replacements are available in case of any injury.

“We haven’t played for a while. Our last Test match was December last year against Afghanistan in India. We have been working very hard and we have games coming up to get our bodies tuned. I’m looking forward to it. The body is feeling quite well.

The 200-mark is on my mind – it would be an honour to get into the 200 bracket on this tour. My focus is getting to the mark and maybe push on to over 250 and maybe 300. But the goal is to beat England. We want to win again and take back home the trophy.”
