Brian Lara Urges West Indies Be “technical and tactical” In Test Match Series Against England

Former West Indies Test Captain, Brian Lara, is urging the regional side to be “technical and tactical” in order to mitigate the threat of England’s batting in the three-Test series starting next week at Lord’s.

On Wednesday the first Test match  bowls off.

The 55-year-old Lara said it was important for West Indies to stay “aggressive” in the field, and not to fall into the trap of going on the defensive too early.

He made the comments while speaking in an interview with Sky Sports.

West Indies have already suffered a setback to their squad ahead of the series with veteran fast bowler, Kemar Roach,  ruled out with a knee injury.

However, Lara,  said his concern more surrounded the inexperienced batting line-up.
