Obed McCoy aims to win CPL 2022
West Indies pacer Obed McCoy was bought by Rajasthan Royals for a price of Rs 75 lacs by the Rajasthan Royals, and he did pretty well for the Royals. He scalped 11 wickets in 7 matches and was one of the reliable players of the side in the death overs. The left-arm pacer will play for the Royals-owned Barbados Royals in the CPL.
McCoy said that it is a new franchise for him, but he has settled in quickly as there are quite a few familiar faces in the camp due to its connection with Rajasthan Royals. McCoy insists that he feels at home with the Royals.
“It’s a new franchise for me but I’ve settled well into the team because there are a lot of familiar faces in our camp. It’s like a continuation from the IPL itself,” McCoy said.
McCoy made it clear that he aims to win the CPL with the Barbados Royals as Rajasthan Royals lost in the final against Gujarat Titans. He insists that the pitches in the tournament will suit the spinners, and a bowler like him will be effective with the slower balls under his arsenal.
“We’re here to win the CPL and I will plan to keep going out there and take wickets to get the team over the rope,” McCoy added.
“With wickets in the Caribbean, you know that the majority will be spin tracks, so I think that will play a role. I think for batters it will be about getting in and making the most of it, while for the bowling team, the middle overs will be crucial.”
