(Antigua Observer) West Indies will have to “play exceptionally well to even compete against England”, says legendary fast bowler Sir Curtly Ambrose.

The three-Test series begins with a day-night match – the first in England – at Edgbaston on Thursday.

The tourists have lost six consecutive Test series, their most recent win coming against Bangladesh in 2014.

“I am concerned with the way we are playing,” said 53-year-old Sir Curtly, who played 98 Tests for West Indies.

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 live’s Tuffers and Vaughan Cricket Show, he added: “I am hoping they can at least win one Test or compete, but, as a realist, I am not too sure they will.”

West Indies will be without several key players – including Chris Gayle, Darren Bravo, Darren Sammy and Marlon Samuels – after a number of disputes in the Caribbean between the board and its players.
