Stephen Parry happy at ‘dream’ debut against West Indies
England‘s Stephen Parry had a dream debut against the West Indies in the second One-Day International (ODI) match at North Sound Antigua as he picked up 3 for 32 and helped his side during their thrilling 3-wicket win over the home side.
Parry said that it was a heart-warming experience against the West Indies and he hoped that he would come up with similar performances in the matches to follow for his side.
Parry praised Ravi Bopara and Stuart Broad for building up a crucial 58-run partnership for the eight wicket which eventually changed the course of the game.
Parry said that though a spot in the Test side was out of his reach currently still he hoped that Graeme Swann’s retirement may have opened up a window of opportunity for him and other spinners to challenge for the coveted spot.
Parry concluded by saying that his immediate aim was of course to consolidate his place as a England regular in the ODI set-up and stake a claim for a place in the ICC World Cup 2015.
