Gabriel's pace has 'put the wind up' Eng

Better bowling execution has lifted West Indies to victory in their series against England, the Caribbean team's former coach Stuart Law has said ahead of the third and final Test starting in St. Lucia on Saturday.

The underdog home team clinched the series by winning the first two Tests in one-sided fashion.

The pace of Shannon Gabriel gave the hosts an extra weapon, according to Law.

"Shannon Gabriel bowling at [that pace], no-one wants to face it and I know for a fact a few England boys don't like facing Shannon," Law said.

"He wasn't the main destroyer. He was the one who put the wind up [England] and got them thinking, and then you had the skill and the craft of Kemar Roach, and Jason Holder with his big swing and bounce and a young firebrand Alzarri Joseph who can let rip at 90-plus as well.
