"I think winning the series would obviously be the pinnacle right now. We are a little bit behind on the eight-ball but I am sure guys have it in them to come back out of the pit and fight," Roach told ESPNcricinfo.
Roach joined these West Indian legends on the list
Roach joined a number of West Indian greats on the elite tally. The list includes Courtney Walsh (519), Curtly Ambrose (405), Malcolm Marshall (376), Lance Gibbs (309), Joel Garner (259), Michael Holding (249), Sir Garfield Sobers (235) and Sir Andy Roberts (202).
Speaking on the historic landmark, Roach expressed his contentment.
"The landmark gave me a little bit of relief. Obviously it was a bit emotional. I know the journey I have had. It has been very very tough to get back on the field. To get that milestone is a weight off my back. It's all about how much I can go now," he said.
