We Mix Business with Pleasure.

ROSEAU, Dominica, Wednesday March 20, 2013 – Assistant coach  Toby Radford says the West Indies are coming out with guns blazing in an attempt  to send the Zimbabwe players back to Harare empty handed, when the second test  begins here Wednesday.

The two sides play each other in a second and deciding test at Windsor Park  in Roseau following West Indies 9 wicket win at Kensington, their fifth straight  win in test.

The Caribbean side will be looking for their sixth consecutive win – going  back to August last year when they beat New Zealand in Antigua and Jamaica; and  last November when they beat Bangladesh in Dhaka and Khulna.

“Every game is important. We want to make sure the Zimbabweans don’t win a  game on this tour. We want to send them home empty-handed, “said Radford.

“ We have had a really good run in Test cricket this last year – we did well  against New Zealand, we did really well in Bangladesh and we would like to  follow that up with a complete sweep here as well.”

The game will be Zimbabwe’s last opportunity to salvage some pride after  losing every international match on their Caribbean tour.

They have already suffered heavy losses in the One-Day Internationals 3-0 at  the Grenada National Stadium and took the T20s 2-0 at the Vivian Richards  Cricket Ground in Antigua.

The Zimbabwe cricketers will have their work cut out for them on a surface  expected to provide bounce against inform spinner Shane Shillingford playing in  front his home crowd.

“Last year it was fantastic and Shane bowled exceptionally well as he did  again last week in Barbados,” said Radford in reference to Shillingford’s ten  wicket haul against the Australians at Windsor Park last year.

“If he can produce something again like that I think it will be a great  atmosphere. They are really good people here they love their cricket.. a nice  stadium and I think we will be in for a really good game”.

The second Test bowls off at Windsor Park on Wednesday at 10 am (9 am Jamaica  time).
