Both the bowlers missed out on the three-day practice match against UPCA that concluded in a draw at the JU Saltlake Campus today due to shoulder injuries.
“Shane was supposed to play but then he slept badly on his neck and had a little bit of shoulder problem so we rested him,” Gibson told reporters after their warm-up match.
Giving an update about their main strike bowler Roach, the 44-year-old former pacer said: “Kemar Roach has got a little bit of shoulder problem but he should be okay for next week. But it was good to see Sheldon Cotterrell getting a run and Tino too looked good.”
The coach was hopeful that the duo would be fit in time before the two-Test series beginning here November 6.
“Everything is looking in course for the Test series. We’re pretty happy the way we’re at the moment.”
