The 29-year-old toured here last year with West Indies 'A' but says the thrill of playing the longest format had left him highly motivated for the two-Test series, reports CMC.

West Indies will play two Tests, three ODIs and two T20 internationals against Sri Lanka.

"It's my first time in Sri Lanka playing Test cricket. I've heard a lot about Sri Lanka and the pitch taking spin, so I really want to play here. They are one of the best teams in the world at playing spin," Bishoo said yesterday.

West Indies face Sri Lanka President's XI in a three-day tour match starting on Thursday.
