North Sound (Antigua): Mar 7, 2014

England captain Stuart Broad says the key to his side’s success in the upcoming Twenty20 Series against West Indies, will be how well they adjust to new conditions in Barbados.

The tourists pulled off a 25-run victory in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) on Wednesday to take the series 2-1. They face the hosts on Sunday in the first of three T20s at Kensington Oval, reports CMC.

“Winning helps your confidence and your belief, and to win in pressure scenarios in conditions that are a little bit foreign to us should help our belief. It should give us confidence,” Broad said

“We’ve got to go to Barbados, adjust to conditions there. But part of being a Twenty20 cricketer and being in the England side – that is your biggest test – is adjusting to different wickets in Twenty20 cricket as quickly as you can. And that’s what we’ll have to do come Sunday.”

The T20 series will be crucial preparation for both teams as they gear up for their outing in the  ICC World Twenty20 Championship in Bangladesh in March.

And while Broad acknowledged the importance of the ODI series win here, he said the focus was now on success at the upcoming T20 Championship.

“You saw at the end the celebrations from the guys, how much it means to us to win a series,” he said.

“A lot of these guys haven’t been part of the one-day squad for a little while. To come over to the West Indies, play 50-over cricket and produce like we have done is awesome.

“We’re now into Twenty20 mode that we take to a World Cup, but I think we got a lot out the last two weeks here in Antigua.”
