Former fast bowler Bishop believes Windies face 'impossible' task against England
London, May 13(ANI): Former West Indies bowler Ian Bishop believes the Caribbean team has no chance against world's number one ranked Test team England in the three-match Test series, starting on May 17 at Lord's.
Bishop believes the Windies top order lacks experience and won't be able to face the world class bowling attack of England seamers in bowler friendly conditions.
"It's about being realistic and the facts suggest this is an impossible task for the West Indies. The West Indies batting worries me with Adrian Barath, Kieron Powell and Kirk Edwards in the top three," The Daily Star quoted Bishop, as saying.
"They are all young and their form has not been great, maybe with the slight exception of Edwards. They are still learning their game. None of them have any experience of conquering English conditions. This is their first UK tour, and I think, they will struggle," he added.
Bishop feels so strongly about the struggle facing his team because of the respect he has for the England bowling attack, and he compared their bowling attack to that of South Africa's pace battery.
The bowlers were let down by the out of form batsmen against Pakistan but Bishop doesn't think that will be the case this time.
"In English conditions, James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Tim Bresnan or Steve Finn is an outstanding attack. The only attack in world cricket that compares is South Africa's, with Dale Steyn, Morne Morkel and Vernon Philander," he said. (ANI)
