According to sources virat kohli is the "benchmark" and that is why all west indies players should work as hard as the indian captain to achieve their goals, feels their assistant coach Roddy Estwick. Meanwhile in a media interaction ahead of the ODI series, which begins here on sunday, said the team's young cricketers like shimron hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran must learn from opposition skipper Kohli. Apparently a lot of players can learn from him. Then, we have got a chance. Without hard work, there is no success. Hard work is boring but it can give you great success. Once they keep working and dealing with the process, they will have a chance."
When asked about the challenges in store for the young spinners in the side while taking on india, he said: "It's a learning curve for these young spinners Hayden Walsh Jr, Kharry Pierre and Roston Chase. It's all about learning and building blocks for the 2023 World Cup. He added "Once you play against the best, it helps you to raise your game and standard. So, it is good that we are playing against a quality side like India".
Moreover on what dimension Romario Shepherd added to the west indies squad, Estwick said he was a very good cricketer and would add value to the bowling and batting departments.
