Veteran pacer Curtley Ambrose said the West Indies should rest Shai Hope from the decisive third Test match of the series against England as repeated failures could affect his career.

Ambrose while talking to Sky Sports said, “Something is going wrong with this batsman after scoring a brilliant century at Headingley.”

Hope played two centuries innings in Headingley in the 2017 series. This wicketkeeper-batsman has not even crossed the 30-run mark in his four innings of the current series against England.

Ambrose, who took 630 wickets in Tests and ODIs for the West Indies, said, “He is a much better player than what we are seeing right now.” Apparently, his confidence is still low. If possible, he should rest in the next match so that he can gain some confidence. He said, “If he continues to fail in the same way then his career may be affected.”
