Time to rise for WI: Dyson
West Indies coach John Dyson believes his team's daunting, imminent challenge against Australia could be the making of his Caribbean team.
The Windies face the world champions in the first of three Tests in Jamaica from May 22 with Dyson predicting some of his younger players will seize their opportunity against Ricky Ponting's men.
"This is the time for our guys to play their best cricket. This is a really great opportunity for them. As I look at the main players it is a chance to further enhance their reputations," said Dyson.
"When you look at the less high profile players, it is a golden opportunity for them to put their hands up and say: 'I have arrived', and really put some big numbers on the board.
"I have been telling them this is the time to really deliver and be counted, and what better occasion than against the best side in the world and in front of your supporters on home turf. If everyone delivers the team will surely benefit."
The West Indies have been training here since Monday and according to Dyson, the players have worked hard on getting ready for the three Tests, five ODIs and one Twenty20 international.
