West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite had only a few positives to attract on from a heavy innings defeat within the first check in opposition to South Africa in St Lucia however singled out teenage quick bowler Jayden Seales for particular reward.
The 19-year-old had performed just one first-class match earlier than the check however took 3-75, together with his figures barely tarnished by a late onslaught from centurion Quinton de Kock.
Seales’ potential to swing the ball at tempo off an excellent size bodes properly for the long run, Brathwaite mentioned.”Not all bowlers have that pure size and he clearly swings the ball. So I used to be not stunned by his efficiency on this sport,” the captain mentioned.
“Even at observe, there are completely different little issues that he does with the ball. He’s one for the long run, large time.”Clearly he’s younger, however he was robust, his tempo was up all through and I actually suppose he’s one thing particular.”
West Indies carried out properly as a unit with the ball however have been woeful with the bat as they have been bowled out for 97 and 162, slumping to defeat by an innings and 63 runs.
That can weigh closely on their minds going into the second check, which begins on Friday on the similar venue.”We’ve received to bat higher. (Roston) Chase confirmed struggle (making 62 within the second innings), however that first innings hampered us quite a bit,” Brathwaite mentioned.
“We’ll take a bit of break and are available again stronger. For me it’s about getting your thoughts in the correct place. It’s extra psychological than technical.”
