Spin bowler Rahkeem Cornwall said he has learnt from the recent Test series loss in England and is ready to move on.
The Antiguan, in an interview with Observer, said that although he failed to pick up wickets in the lone Test he played, it was a learning experience for him.
“I don’t feel too bad about my performance and maybe on a different day wickets would have come my way, but I didn’t get any wickets. I think I bowled pretty well. Opportunities came about but it was just not my day to get wickets. Going forward I just think that I have to work on my game and make sure I can perform under every condition that I might be going to but I wouldn’t say it was a bad tour, I just have to move on and learn from it,” he said.
Cornwall went wicket-less in the final Test, going for 164 runs from 46 overs as West Indies lost the series decider match by 269 runs.
Despite surrendering the Wisden Trophy, Cornwall credited the players for the efforts they made during the series.
“I think we performed well in the first game and we did all we needed to do to win that first game and I think that came from the preparation we had before. In the second and the third Tests we played okay cricket but not good enough to come over the line; but I think we still put in a good effort,” he said.
West Indies had won the opening match by four wickets before losing the second by 113 runs.
