Ramdin: I am not feeling any pressure


Denesh Ramdin says he is not feeling under any extra pressure now that he has been removed as the captain of the West Indies Test side.

The 30 year-old wicketkeeper was replaced as skipper for the longest format by allrounder Jason Holder, who will lead the regional team on a tour to Sri Lanka next month.

Ramdin, who has been told by the selectors to concentrate on his batting, says the presence of another two wicketkeeper/batsmen, Shane Dowrich and Shai Hope, in the squad has not affected him at all.

A right-handed batsman, Ramdin said: "I am looking forward to the camp and getting in some work before the tough Sri Lankan series comes up.

"It is going to be a very tough tour because the conditions are tough and we have to do as much work going into the series, if we stand a chance of doing well.

"I feel good at the moment, looking to hit some balls and get my game going. It will be important to spend time at the crease and forge partnerships with whoever is batting with me.

"I am not feeling any pressure at all. They might be under more pressure than me because they have less experience and they will be batting higher up the order."
