The Barbadian player asserted that he has the skills and abilities to achieve the success he is enjoying in 50 over format of the game and all he needs to get there are “minor tweaks” and some work on the “mental side” of his game.

Test cricket is favorite format

Talking about his performance in the longest format of the game, Shai Hope, who created history by making twin tons at Headingley in a famous win for West Indies in 2017, said Test cricket is his favorite format and he is working on his skills to portray the reflection.

“Red-ball batting is definitely my favourite part of the game but the runs and the stats aren’t exactly where we want them to be, but I’m working towards that,”

ICC official website quoted Hope

“I would probably say it’s more of a mental thing. Hopefully, I can turn it around and move on from there.”

Shai Hope is optimistic

The 26-years old, who has played 31 Tests and averages 27.2, appeared optimistic in his quest to improve his Test stats with self-belief.

“Just [need to] have the continued belief in myself, back my ability because I know I can get it done, it’s not like I haven’t done it before,” added Shai Hope.

“Case of making sure I make the most of these opportunities and do whatever I can to make the team win.”
