Richardson backs Windies to show ‘fighting spirit’ in last Test against Kiwis

Wellington, Dec 18: West Indies great Richie Richardson believes the tourists will display a fighting spirit as they attempt to bounce back from being 1-0 down in the Test series against New Zealand.

According to Stuff.co.nz, Richardson said the tourists needed to shrug off the absence of spinner Shane Shillingford, who on Tuesday was banned from playing in the third test because of an illegal bowling action.

Richardson said that the team had to focus on what was ahead of them and their focus right now was to win the last Test match.

Sunil Narine is likely to take Shillingford’s place and the hosts will be wary of him after he caused the Black Caps problems in the test and one-day series in the Caribbean last year, the report said. (ANI)
