Coach backs birthday boy Bishoo

Delhi, India -- Devendra Bishoo will have one of the biggest days of his cricketing life on Sunday when he lines up for West Indies against India in the first Test match at the Feroz Shah Kotla.

The leg-spinner has been the West Indies’ highest wicket-taker this year with 32 wickets in seven matches at an average of just over 30. He will be facing the Indian batsmen for the first time on their home turf. It is also his 26th birthday.

Playing for Windies helped Hyatt

North Sound, Antigua – Jamaican batsman Danza Hyatt said that playing for the West Indies senior team has improved his confidence and has helped him to progress as a batsman.

“Being around the experienced guys and playing international cricket has helped me for sure,” said Hyatt who has appeared in five One Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals.

He said his time on the international stage has allowed him to pick up good form.

“I think I’m in good nick so I have to capitalize and I need to continue to get the big scores,” Hyatt reasoned.

"Hype over 100th ton could make it tough"

Delhi, India CMC/IANS – West Indies coach Ottis Gibson said the hype around Sachin Tendulkar’s 100th international hundred could make it tough for the batting maestro.

Gibson tried to deflect questions about Tendulkar being on the verge of scoring his 100th international century.

“I was not aware of the milestone and haven’t thought much about it,” he said. “But I feel if there is too much hype, it would be tough for Tendulkar ... but Tendulkar is a legend and he would get it anyway, eventually it will happen.”
