Curtly Ambrose feels Shai Hope could benefit from a rest in the third Test of the series against England as his dire run of form in Tests continues.
Hope hasn’t scored a century in the format for almost three years now – his last Test hundred came on the last West Indies’ tour of England in 2017 when he reached three figures in both the innings of the Headingley Test.
The right-hand batsman, who has impressed in the ODI format, scoring 3289 runs at 52.20 for the West Indies, has returned scores of 16, 9, 25 and 7 respectively in the two Tests of the series so far. And Ambrose believes resting Hope for the third Test might help him “regain confidence”.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
