The strip laid out in Hobart for the first test between Australia and West Indies has lush green patches all over it. The pitch is bound to assist the pacers throughout the game and this can be a boon for the West Indian pacers. The visiting bowlers were simply ecstatic on having a look at the pitch and were completely galvanized.

“Of course, there aren’t many wickets in the world like that, so it’s good to see that for a change. I’m pretty excited to get a go on Thursday,” pacer Kemar Roach said of the wicket. “Yeah I think so it will still be green on Thursday. I know Australians play very hard cricket and they believe in what they do, so that’s what they give us, and that’s what we’re going to take,” Roach said.

“There’s some very good fast bowlers in our group, our job is to go out there and give it our best shot. Jerome Taylor has been leading the attack very well, he’s in good form, one of the fastest bowlers in the world Shannon Gabriel, and then myself. And Jason Holder the captain has been good as well. I think we can give the Australians some trouble,” Roach reckoned.

“I love being the underdogs. If we can come out on top then it’s going to be a whole different story, they will change their mouths, I think we’ve got to go out there, do the best that we can and give Australia a good run,” Roach concluded.
