Port-of-Spain (Trinidad): Jun 18, 2014

West Indies pacer Jerome Taylor said encouragement from former cricketer Curtly Ambrose has contributed to his recent success in the ongoing Test series against New Zealand.

Taylor, who has been among the leading wicket takers for West Indies, grabbed four for 34 on the Day One of the second Test on Monday to help tilt the balance in favour of the home side.

His bowling exploits have highlighted an impressive return to international cricket after nearly five years’ absence, reports CMC.

“I have been having a lot of talks with Sir Curtly and he is someone from whom you can learn a lot from in terms of fast bowling,” Taylor said. “He is passing on a lot of the knowledge and that is something that is vital for us.”

Taylor removed Hamish Rutherford early on the first day, before snaring three more scalps in the final session to wreck New Zealand’s middle-order. He credited his performances to the inputs provided by West Indies’ bowling coach Ambrose, a former West Indies pacer.

“I must give some credit to him, he had done a lot for us in terms of mindset and approach to the game,” said Taylor. “He continues to stress that in Test cricket you need to be patient with the ball.”
