West Indies’ latest batting recruit, Sunil Ambris, has been praised for the way he has transformed his game, in order to make the rise to the international level.

He sent a clear signal to tour selectors with an audacious 153 off 145 balls in the three-day tour match against New Zealand A which ended on Monday.
