West Indies coach Phil Simmons hopes to intimidate opponents with sharp work in the field when the ICC World T20 gets under way in a few days’ time. Despite comfortable wins over Zimbabwe in warm-up matches to date there were a couple of missed opportunities and dropped catches during the game. For the coach shoddy field work is one of the things the team is looking to avoid for the tournament.
“It’s a case of making sure that we get back to a standard where people are afraid of us in the field, and we have the players that can put that fear into other people in the field,” said Simmons.”I think we, as a unit, have to make sure everybody is doing their job and if we can get it to that stage by the 16th then people will be in for a shock.” “I think we need to make sure that we are in the field, that we are getting to the ball and we are hitting stumps and things like that,” he said. The West Indies will open its campaign against England at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
