DHAKA- Sunil Narine believes the spinners will have a big part to play in West Indies' title defense of the World T20 in Bangladesh, where conditions traditionally favor the slow bowlers. He said "Spinners will play a key role but I think at the end of the day it will be the whole team effort. I think all of our guys are keen on taking the challenge. We have a good bunch of guys going out there and we will give it our all.”
Narine added that he was comfortable coming into the tournament as the top-ranked T20 bowler. In the last World T20 in Sri Lanka, Narine had taken nine wickets in seven games, including figures of 3 for 9 in the final against Sri Lanka. Narine said that he was prepared to deliver the goods amid all the hype around him. Narine also expressed his relief at West Indies' impressive form in their home series against England, admitting that it proved to be a big confidence booster before entering Bangladesh. He was equally happy that West Indies managed to retain the core of their title-winning team that prevailed in Sri Lanka two years ago.
