‘Extra time spent in Bangladesh ought to help Windies players’

West Indies spinner Rahkeem Cornwall thought that the extra time spent here in Bangladesh while on tour will help players adapt to the conditions better.  

Both of the West Indies Test and ODI squads came to Dhaka on January 10. While the ODI players have been in action till now -- playing in the three-match ODI series that ended Monday with Bangladesh sweeping the series 3-0 -- the Test team members have been biding their time and practicing for the upcoming two-Test series, starting from February 3 at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium (ZACS) in Chattogram. 

And according to Cornwall, the heaviest cricketer in the world, the extra time spent in Bangladesh would help them to acclimatize to the conditions here.

"You have to get adapt to this condition. This condition is difficult to play cricket. The more time you spend here, the easier it gets to understand the conditions," siad Cornwall after today's practice session at ZACS.

Cornwall also acknowledged the differences in the pitches here in Bangladesh than those in the Caribbean.

"It spins a bit more here. Pitches are a little bit dryer here than the Caribbean. So, you just have to adapt and play best to our ability," said the 27-year-old.
