“The Man of the Series performance last year against England was the high point of my career and we won the series as well, which was something extra special for the people of the West Indies and those fans all around the world who support us,” windiescricket.com quoted Kemar Roach as saying.

Name on the honours board is a special kind of feel

Remembering his personal and team’s performance in the series against England last year, Kemar Roach said he will try to replicate the performance again. The ball was just coming out and everything just flowed, he added.

“…we played a very good brand of cricket. Going to England will bring back some good memories. I love playing in England, very good facilities and wonderful atmosphere,” said the ace Windies paceman.

Ready to play without fans

The Barbados player added the five wicket haul performance at the Lords last times he played in England and said it always feel special to have your name on the Lords’ honour board. Speaking further he said, even though the match will be played without spectators, it will be quite good for him.

“I love playing in England, very good facilities and wonderful atmosphere. Even though we won’t be playing in front the fans this time, it will still be quite good. I had a good series last time…. It felt special to get five wickets at Lords and have my name on the honours board.”

To beat England in England would be something special

Speaking to windiescricket.com, the right-arm fast bowler revealed his target he set for the England Tour saying that to beat England in their own den would be something special for him.

To beat England in England would be something special for us as players and for West Indies cricket. “It’s definitely doable…. We beat them last time they were here in the West Indies last year and we have many of the same players who were in that team last year,” added Kemar Roach.
