Southampton: (seedhibaat news service)He missed out on a well-deserving century during the opening Test against England but West Indies batsman Jermaine Blackwood is more disappointed about not being able to stay till the target was achieved.
Blackwood scored a match-winning 95 in the second innings as West Indies claimed a four-wicket win over England on Sunday. He was dismissed with his team just 11 short of the target of 200.
The right-handed batsman, who has scored 1469 runs in 29 Tests for England so far, acknowledged the confidence shown by his captain Jason Holder and coach Phil Simmons.
Coming to bat with West Indies tottering at 27-3, Blackwood rode his luck and guided his team closer to the target before a moment’s lapse of concentration saw him hit straight to Jimmy Anderson at mid-off in the 61st over.
