WEST INDIES’ cricketers start a series against Zimbabwe at Kensington Oval today seeking to achieve a feat the Caribbean side has not attained in 25 years.
Not since 1988 have West Indies won six successive Tests, but the two-match rubber against Zimbabwe gives Darren Sammy’s team the opportunity to duplicate the streak set by Vivian Richards’ side.
On the heels of four successive victories, dating back to last year’s home series against New Zealand and extending to the away tour of Bangladesh later in the year, Sammy and his men are eying the “six-peat” against a Zimbabwe team that is not listed on the ICC Test rankings because of insufficient matches.
“That’s the goal of the team,” Sammy said yesterday after a training session at Kensington Oval. “We’d love to do that but if you look at Test cricket around the world, lower ranked teams are putting up a good fight. We won’t take them for granted.
