Simmons, speaking about Pakistan, praised the Men in Green for victory in their last couple of Test series.
“We are at home, but we are a little bit of an underdog in this. We know that we’re going to try to put everything into it and ensure that we come out on top,” he said.
He stressed improving batting standards and highlighted the importance of batters scoring big runs consistently to provide bowlers with an opportunity to defend the target.
“It is the beginning of a new series, and we will try to perform to the best of our abilities,” he said when inquired how difficult it will be for the West Indies in the upcoming ICC Test Championship cycle after not doing so good in the previous one.
