There has been much healthy discussion and speculation on the West Indies (WI) team selected for the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2019 that starts in England on May 30.
Of course, this is expected as there is a brand new president in Ricky Skerritt who has instituted changes, one being the introduction of new selectors for the WI team. The new chairman is Robert Haynes of Jamaica; others are Floyd Reifer of Barbados and Jimmy Adams, the Director of Cricket at Cricket West Indies (CWI). Jason Holder, the captain, is also a selector.
I give the selectors credit for not being tempted to make drastic changes that could upset the delicate balance of the team. Quite wisely, they have maintained the regulars with few changes so as not to upset the momentum and good feelings that would have been built up over the past few months among team members.
