Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Fyi -


CRICK­ETERS have wasted no time in hit­ting the wa­ters at the pop­u­lar Ac­cra beach on the South Coast after ar­riv­ing in Bar­ba­dos on Fri­day evening for the first leg of their Caribbean tour.

After re­turn­ing to their ho­tel fol­low­ing a prac­tice ses­sion at the 3Ws Oval yes­ter­day morn­ing, some of them went for an af­ter­noon swim and snorkelling.

Among them were cap­tain Joe Root, lead­ing fast bowlers James An­der­son and Stu­art Broad, and all-rounder Ben Stokes.

Eng­land will play the West In­dies in the first of three Tests start­ing at Kens­ing­ton Oval on Jan­uary 23.
