A BATTING WITH BIMAL BREAKING REPORT: I am currently receiving help from Gordon Greenidge, admits Adrian Barath

Barath is confident that Greenidge will point out and correct any errors in his batting

West Indies batsman Adrian Barath is currently seeking advice from legendary opener Gordon Greenidge after admitting that he has not been in the best of forms as of late.

Barath’s batting has taken such a drastic slide that even regional side Trinidad and Tobago have dropped him from their squad.

However, Barath is confident that he can regain his place in both the Trinidad and Tobago and West Indies squad under the guidance of Greenidge.

“Currently I am in training under the watchful eyes of Gordon Greenidge which is somewhat of a private thing at the moment, Barath said. “Greenidge organised a ten-day programme which began on Monday (last week) and is conducted on afternoons after we have concluded national training, so it’s really an interesting thing.”

Barath started off his Test career in emphatic style by scoring a century against Australia in 2009, but he failed to be included in the national team’s recently concluded tour of Bangladesh due to his poor form.

Kieran Powell, who replaced Barath in the Test side, has already made a name for himself by scoring back-to-back centuries in the first Test against Bangladesh.

But, Barath believes that under Greenidge’s watchful gaze, he will be able to reclaim his spot on the national team.

“I intend to use this opportunity to gain as much knowledge and confidence so I am looking forward to the next five days,” Barath said. “Additionally, this presents the opportunity for me to build a relationship with him and understand what made him such a special player, especially since in his time they did not have the facilities and technology we have today, so it would be interesting to find out what they did in order to perform consistently at the highest level.”
