LANGER IN AWE OF WINDIES TAL­ENT

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Aus­tralia stand-in coach Justin Langer says he was in awe of the tal­ent on dis­play among the lo­cal fast bowlers in the West Indies. Aus­tralia beat the Windies in the tri-se­ries, but Langer be­lieves the pitches are not nur­tur­ing the tal­ent in the Caribbean. He said: “Alzari Joseph bowled fast, beau­ti­ful york­ers - and what an ath­lete. There is so much fast-bowl­ing tal­ent here. You’ve got big, tall, beau­ti­ful ath­letes but I don’t un­der­stand why they play on such dead, low, life­less wickets.”
