It would be very interesting to know what Cricket West Indies’(CWI) administration believes is the reason for the poor performances of the West Indies (Windies) cricket team. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to take a confidential poll of the members of that august body, giving each one the opportunity to air their views, letting all fans be aware of their separate opinions as to who or what is to blame for the dismal showing of their cricket team?
Plus, as a bonus, could they all let us know what individual plan each one would employ to correct the situation? They must feel free to express themselves without fear that anyone will take away from them their so eagerly sought-after positions, their sanctimonious offices as directors of CWI! Wouldn’t it be marvellous?
The Caribbean team played so wretchedly in 2017 that the odd respectable win has been drowned in a sea of devastating performances, climaxing on their tour of New Zealand. Yet we, what remains of the cricket-loving public, have to endure the same old depressing excuses so much so that the Australian coach of the team, Stuart Law, has now fallen into the trap of trying to justify reasons for losing. Yet, whether Windies batted first or second, whether they won the toss or not, nevertheless they were beaten badly!
