West Indian middle-order batsman Brendan Nash has described what it feels like to part of a struggling West Indian side, saying that he and his team-mates are 'sick' of losing.
Nash has been recalled to the Test squad to face South Africa having not played a part in his side's 5-0 One-Day International defeat to the Proteas, the 2-0 Twenty20 International series defeat or the ICC World Twenty20.
“We’re sick of losing. We don’t like losing. We don’t enjoy it, but it is not something we can just turn around in one day. It is going to be a slow process, but we’re trying to do the right thing,” Nash told local radio station 103FM ahead of the first Test in Trinidad.
“Nobody wants to lose, we’re doing what we can with the resources we have and the structures we have to try and turn things around, he added.
The West Indies do have happy recent memories of Trinidad, where they drew with England to seal a 1-0 Test series victory in 2009.
“I hope everyone remembers the Digicel Series last year against England. It came down to the last match. We were one up and we held on for a draw to win the series. Hopefully the Trinis put their minds back to that and support us . That’s what we needed at that time and that’s what we need at this time.
“We haven’t had the best of runs in the shorter format of the game. (Tests) are different and we showed some good signs against Australia at the end of last year, and this is the next Test series since then so hopefully the fans will come out and support us."
Nash scored his maiden Test century at the Queen's Park Oval when he scored 109 against England and he returns to the national squad following a run of good form playing for the 'A' team in Bangladesh.
