PROMISING West Indies pacer Andre Russell says he is satisfied with his performance during the recent rain-affected Test tour of Sri Lanka…

“It was a good experience because it’s at the (Test) level that I’ve always wanted to play at. I enjoyed it, but I was a bit disappointed with how I got out when I batted. I have looked on it as a learning process and I’m looking to move on even stronger, so I just have to work on that.

“It’s not necessarily hot like here in Jamaica, but it’s very humid and you tend to sweat a lot. It took time getting acclimatised to the conditions, and bowling on those flat pitches is hard work so you have to put in a 110 per cent. If you come and hit the length hard you are going to get results. Playing against those top batsmen you have to be patient and more consistent. For a debut Test match I think I had a good one,” Russell said…

The fast-bowling all-rounder added that the complex action of spinner Ajantha Mendis had been his major problem on tour.

“Mendis gave me some problems and got me out twice on the tour — in the warm-up game and in the Test match. I just have to pay more attention to his action and try to play him on the front foot more often. Playing at the top level is just about being more consistent and just thinking about your game a bit more,” he said…
