Barbados – Inspired by the progress he witnessed in the just-concluded series against Pakistan, West Indies head coach Stuart Law says the regional side will be targeting an upset when they face England in their next Test series this August.

West Indies are ranked a lowly eighth, only behind minnows Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, while England are fourth, but Law believes once his side can build on the positives from the recent series and use the preparation time before England wisely, they will be able to reap positive results.

“We can continue to work hard. When we get to England, we’ve got a pretty extensive preparation period before the first Test,” the Australian said.

“It’s not going to guarantee us victories but it will certainly give us an idea of what we’re faced with. England are a wonderful team but we’re going there not just to compete but we’re going there to hopefully upset them.”

What should Law state? He cannot admit that chances that WI win one game are below 20%, he needs to be positive and instill false confidence into his troops.

The reality is that Law needs his troops to put in a credible performance, that would exceed expectations. WI cricket is a supporting cast in sports entertainment and all would be happy if the entertainment is not a lop-sided affair.

I saw the lead post in the Back Room and it is as obvious as it gets.

I don't waste time dealing with the obvious...nothing neuronally stimulating in the lead post.

But I must say that coming from you with an IQ similar to that of a cue stick, it was a great attempt at intellectual heavy lifting.

Anyway, my response is just ahead of your last post. No need to repost.

I would tell you instead: Do not start an economic argument with and I am quoting you here, "infinite growth..."

It's as foolish and non-argumentative as it gets.

I like the positive attitude, however, to upset England the batsmen must improve their deficiencies against the swinging ball.

The shock will be not being able to shock them since they will be expecting it...
