WEST INDIES head coach Phil Simmons has said Test captain Kraigg Brathwaite is growing as a leader.

He made the observation as he also praised the skipper for his determination in the opening Test against Bangladesh, which the Caribbean side won by seven wickets at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium on Sunday.

The head coach had high praise for captain and opener Kraigg Brathwaite and fast bowler Kemar Roach.

“He seems to be growing in the role as we go along,” Simmons said of the opening batsman, who was named permanent captain in March last year.

Cannot agree more, always interesting to look at body language on the field.
Very evident that all are playing for him and doing just what he is demanding.
Every leader has to lead by example and I think that is why he commands so much respect.
Clearly his tactical awareness will only get better but cannot fault it now anyway
