By Bryan Davis, former West Indies, Test cricketer
West Indies (WI) cricket in the 21st century is judged solely on the heights it achieved in the late 20th century. Because of its dominance and the small populations of a group of island nations that, combined together, formed one cricket nation that, when worldwide acclamation was received, it made us all proud and worthy of our talents.
However, the downside of this monumental climb to the top was our cricket going into a freefall. Although many solutions have been tried over the years, nothing worked. Many ‘experts’ put forward their ideas and the reasons why such failure came about, still, WI teams find it rather difficult to climb out of the abyss.
