Lara says West Indies must try to win in four days
West Indies must try and win the Tests against England in four days because they cannot last five days, says legendary batsman Brian Lara.
The three-Test series starts on Wednesday at Southampton.
The tourists have a strong fast bowling line-up but their batsmen average only 23.59 in 19 Tests since their most recent tour of England in 2017.
"They have to be able to pounce immediately," said Lara, who will be part of the BBC highlights programme.
"England are not beaten very easily at home and are overwhelming favourites."
Lara, who scored a record 11,953 runs for West Indies in 131 Tests, said the series would depend on how quickly they can adapt to English conditions.
