Cricket news - Pybus warns of England recoil after heavy defeat

"One swallow does not make a summer" - Pybus.

West have Indies, a fool of those who began the series against England, were predicting a whitewash for the tourists, but their coach, Richard Pybus, is very interested in, ensure that you do not go astray after their brilliant victory in Barbados.

It was a superb performance from the West Indies that they are now genuine hopes of winning the series, which continues next week with the second Test in Antigua, starting on Thursday. And while a series victory would be a remarkable performance for the hosts, they are eighth in the world, and England the third, that is a long way to go yet. After all, West Indies for two Tests in a row only once in the last five years.

You could derive no benefit, on a similar occasion, when they last played in England. After the performance against England in Headingley in the year 2017, competes with the one break in this week in Barbados, West Indies broke in the next game at Lord's to defeat a series. This kind of inconsistency in performance on Test-level is the main reason why they are ranked so low - the talent, as shown, in Bridgetown, is obvious and does not show the challenge for the home team, the Kensington Oval was the winner of a one-off.

"One swallow does not make a summer," said Pybus. "It is to keep my job your feet on the ground? Absolutely. We have our goals for the series and we have placed crosses in the first Test. But to injure England. They are a good team and I have great respect for you. You will come back with us in Antigua. Our game must be at the highest level."

West Indies was built the victory, which is on the excellence of their bowlers to do with the four-strong pace Quartet, the damage in England's humiliating first innings 77 all. And then the spin of Roston Chase catering for eight of the tourists second innings wickets as West Indies wrapped up a 381-run win on day four. Although the off-spinner took the applause in the second dig, Pybus sought the recognition of the contribution of the fast bowlers in this innings.

"Chase was wonderful," he said. "Roston bowled exceptionally well. His control was good, he good fields and exercised a huge amount of pressure throughout the game with his consistency. But I think that the pressure created by the bow unit was great, which is what happens when you have four good fast bowlers. As a unit, they complement each other. Roston bowled well, but if you have pressure at both ends, it's pretty hard for the racket."

There were also fine performances with the bat, none more so than captain Jason holder, unbeaten double-hundred in West Indies' second innings, as he and Shane Dowrich took England to the cleaning on the third day, batting for two and a half sessions. It was a further proof that holder, who is also bowled with skill and perseverance, today is one of the best all-rounder in the game. It was no surprise that he was named in the ICC Test team of the year a few weeks ago.

"We have delivered on a game-plan with precision," said Pybus. "The team stayed cool enough, and deeds, to do what we've seen, strategically. This is all credit to Jason. He is calm and composed guy. It is one thing, strategic leadership, it is to result in a other performance. There have been many special achievements, but he was exceptional. It was just an incredible performance."
