Ambris eyes another ton
Sunil Ambris said he is preparing hard to follow up with a second hundred, when West Indies 'A' face Sri Lanka 'A' in the second 'Test', starting today at the Trelawny Multi-purpose Complex.
The Windies 'A' batsman hit his fourth first-class hundred of 106 to lead the hosts to 364 for eight declared in their first innings, paving the way for an innings-and-13-run victory in the weather-affected first 'Test', which ended last Saturday at the same venue.
"It was a good innings, but it was not my best first-class hundred," said Ambris. "It was good in the context of the game. I was able to score at a good clip and most of the other batsmen in the match were not able to accomplish the same thing and that helped to set the tone for our solid first-innings total.
"I was just being myself. I was just trying to be positive and put away the bad balls. Try to play each ball on merit and score in the right areas. There were times when I had to be patient and grind hard, and there were times when I was scoring easily and freely."
Ambris said the knock increased the level of confidence he had in his game and he will be looking to epitomise consistency with another solid knock over the weekend.
