West Indies look set to have a fully fit seam attack for the opening Test against England starting at Lord's here today.

There were worries over the trio of Kemar Roach, Fidel Edwards and Ravi Rampaul coming out of the four-day tour match against England Lions last week but head coach Ottis Gibson said the players had acquitted themselves well in training.

“Everybody pulled up okay today (Wednesday). It all goes back to managing niggles with the Lord’s Test on Thursday being the big event in mind,” Gibson said yesterday.

All three bowlers were used sparingly on the final day of the Lions tour match, raising question marks over the players’ fitness.
