Hamilton will come good: Chase
West Indian all-rounder Roston Chase was really satisfied with his century knock and said he wanted to score more. “I was really pleased with that. This was my first away from home. After the first game, I really looked at my batting in both innings and I thought that I was trying to overhit the ball. On these quick outfields, that’s not really called for,” Chase said.
“You just need to stroke the ball into the gaps and get the ones and twos and put the bad balls away. Runs will come that way. I was pleased with my performance. I wanted to go bigger, it’s never enough runs for the batsman,” he added.
Chase also weighed in favour of Jahmar Hamilton, who came on as a substitute wicket-keeper for the injured Shane Dowrich and had an indifferent stint.
“I guess he wasn’t really prepared mentally to come out at that stage. It just probably gave him a quick jump. First time wicket-keeping in an international game as well, so probably a little nerves but I know Jahmar, he is a good keeper,” said Chase. “I know he will pick up the slack and turn it his way.”
On the pitch, Chase hoped there would be more wear and tear from Sunday and that it should help the spinners’ cause.
The West Indian all-rounder, when asked whether their plan for K.L. Rahul worked just thought they really bowled well to him.
“We tried to contain the batsmen.
“We set more defensive fields and tried to put pressure back on them after they got the quick start and it paid off for us. Then we had a few lapses on the field and that really cost it,” Chase said.
