Former West Indies pacer Curtly Ambrose believed that his former bowling partner Courtney Walsh could offer a lot to Bangladeshi fast bowlers in the upcoming days.

Ambrose and Walsh formed a formidable partnership during the 1990s and brought much success to West Indies cricket through their sheer pace and accuracy making them lethal pace bowling pairs of all time.

‘Courtney Walsh is a legend. He’s got a lot of knowledge in terms of fast bowling. He can only serve the Bangladeshi bowlers for the future. As long as they’re willing to learn, he’s got a lot to offer,’’ Ambrose told reporters recently in England.

 ‘’So I am sure that these guys will get better as long as Courtney’s there,’’ he said while terming Walsh as a very good friend of him, Ambrose refused to draw any comparison.

‘‘Walshie [Walsh] is a very good friend of mine. Everyone knows that we were great as a bowling partnership and we maintain our friendship and we are like brothers, so I won’t talk about him as a bowler, we all know what kind of a bowler he was,’’ he said.

‘’We all know what kind of a bowler I was, so there is nothing to talk about, myself or him,’ he added.


Ambrose, who took 405 Test wickets and 225 one-day internationals wickets in his career, praised Bangladesh’s rise as a cricketing nation but added that there were still some areas to improve for them to get more success in the sport.

“Their cricket has improved. When they came into international cricket first, everyone used to beat up on them, but now they are a much better cricket team,’’ said Ambrose.

‘’They are very competitive, especially in the ODIs and T20Is. They’ve still got a bit of work to do in the Test matches because over five days is a long time. But they are much more competitive and teams who are playing against them nowadays, it’s not an easy walk over like before,’’ he said.

‘’For instance, West Indies, the last nine games we played against Bangladesh, Bangladesh have won seven, so that says a lot. So they’re not easy pushovers for any team these days, but there’s still room for improvement,’ he added.
