Barath getting help from Windies legend Greenidge

Port−of−Spain, Nov 21 (IANS/CMC) Trinidad and Tobago opening batsman Adrian Barath has turned to a West Indies legend to improve his batting as he attempts to regain his place in the regional side.

Barath has sought the services of former West Indies opening batsman Gordon Greenidge ahead of three major cricket competitions in the region, reports CMC.

Greenidge, who formed a prolific opening partnership with Desmond Haynes in the heyday of Windies cricket, is facilitating a ten−day training exercise for Barath which began Monday.

"Currently I am in training under the watchful eyes of Gordon Greenidge which is somewhat of a private thing at the moment," said Barath currently preparing with the national squad for the Caribbean Twenty20 series.

"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, who scored a century on his Test debut against Australia back in 2009, was left out of the West Indies squad currently on tour of Bangladesh.

Kieran Powell, opening the batting with Chris Gayle, scored a century in each innings as the Caribbean side won the first Test by 77 runs.

However, Barath is hoping to regain his place in the Windies team and believes the batting clinic with Greenidge will help him achieve that goal.

"I intend to use this opportunity to gain as much knowledge and confidence so I am looking forward to the next five days," said Barath.

"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."
