Cape Town - West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach said the ball "came out of my hand pretty well" after ripping through England's batting order on the second day of the first Test in Barbados on Thursday.
Roach took five wickets for four runs in a 27-ball spell after lunch, as England collapsed from 30 /1 to 77 all out as the Caribbean side took a 212-run lead after the first innings after they were 289 all out earlier on.
The hosts then went to stumps on 127/6, a lead of 339, but all the talk was of the calamitous collapse suffered by the tourists and Roach's spell which saw him end with figures of 5/17 in 11 overs.
The paceman said after the day's play: "I've felt better in the past, but today the ball came out of my hand pretty well.
"I was pretty happy with how I felt. Eight overs on the trot was a bit tough, the heat was pretty hot, but I was ready to go for the team.
"You can go fuller [on this pitch] and bring them forward, that's most important, and create some chances"
With the lead already at 339 going into the third day, Roach reckons a target of close to 400 will be tough for England to chase even with so much time still left in the game.
Roach continued: "A lead of 300 is good going into the third day," Roach said at the close, "but the pitch has toughened up a little bit for the batsmen, so we just need to put runs on the board.
"It's a tough one but 400 runs on the board is going to be tough for the English. Bowl in the right areas, that's the plan going forward."
