West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach bowled his heart out to earn the Man-of-the-Series award in the just concluded three-match rubber against Sri Lanka.

The Test series, which was heavily hit by rain, ended on Sunday when the third Test was declared a draw.

Roach collected 10 wickets at 24.5 runs each to be the highest wicket taker for the West Indies. His best figures were 5 for 100 in the second Test…

“I feel really good to come here to Sri Lanka and get the Man-of-the-Series award. I’m proud of my achievement. I put in the hard work and I always tried to challenge the techniques of the Sri Lankan batsmen,” Roach said.

“The pitches here are very tough for fast bowling so I was really happy I came away with something to show. As the main fast bowler in the team I knew I had a lot of work to do so I adapted mentally and physically to the job I was asked to do. Test cricket is very tough. The batsmen are a very high class and they know how to score runs. Fitness is also a key aspect. I know once I stay fit and strong I will always give myself a better chance of performing.”

Roach added:”It was good that I could help the team to earn a draw in the series. Coming to Sri Lanka and holding our own and earning a draw is a massive achievement of us as a team…”

“I still have a lot to learn. I will keep talking to the coach and the captain and try to improve my game as much as possible. I have not played cricket in all the Test-playing nations so I’m still inexperienced when it comes to world cricket. I will continue to ask questions and try to learn as much as I can. I want to take my game to higher height.”
