Jason Holder leads the West Indies team off the field after defeating England

"The practical side is there for the young players but I feel mentally they can grow a little bit and learn a little bit more", official website of Cricket West Indies (CWI) quoted Lara as saying. "And, I see that little similarity where that passion... was at times that passion that makes people look at us and be like 'Why are they so angry?'"

"With Keemo ruled out for this match, it's good to have someone with Miguel's quality back in the squad, as he brings experience to the team", Windies interim head coach Floyd Reifer said.

The inaugural edition will see the elite nations - Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies - fight for top honours across 71 Test matches in 27 series over the next two years.

For India, Chesteshwar Pujara, who reeled off three centuries in the four Tests in Australia, has already picked up from where he left off Down Under in notching up three figures in the lone warm-up fixture against a regional representative team last weekend.

After dominating the preceding T20 and One-Day International series, India are seeking to extend their dominance in the Caribbean. "There will hardly be any boring draws, there will be exciting draws because everyone will want those extra points", he said while speaking at the West Indies Players Awards night according to Cricbuzz.

"The talent that's within is there. We must lay the foundation at home first before we travel overseas in foreign conditions to sort of take command of situations". Former Windies cricketer Ramnaresh Sarwan is also a part of the camp.

Together, it is hoped they can inspire the current Windies batting group in what will be a hard series against a world-class bowling attack.

"I think these contributions are not recognised or spoken about so much but as a team we all have markers set as to what is expected from certain batting positions".
