Antigua: West Indies cricket is in shambles and its fast bowlers have forgotten how to intimidate batsmen, feels legendary pacer Curtly Ambrose who does not foresee a return to past glory for the team anytime soon.
"The present standard is very, very bad and the only way interest can be revived is if we start winning some matches," said Ambrose, who took 405 wickets from his 98 Tests. Ambrose is disappointed that West Indian fast bowlers have forgotten the art of intimidating batsmen.
"I think it's very important for a fast bowler to be intimidating. He must intimidate batsmen. I used to do it. I liked to soften them up," he recalled.
