Mystery off-spinner Sunil Narine could prove a huge asset to the West Indies attempts to avoid a whitewash against England, head coach Ottis Gibson has said.

The 24-year-old, who was a stand-out in the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) for champions Kolkata Knight Riders, was unexpectedly called up on Wednesday to replace injured bowler Kemar Roach.

“It’s his first time playing international cricket in England and there’s a disadvantage playing for the first time in these conditions but it’s an advantage because the opposition haven’t seen him yet,” Gibson said.
