Windies Cricket Crisis
When are West Indies cricket fans going to rise up an demand a change in the management of our cricket team? We have suffered the embarrassment and humiliation of how badly the team is doing for too long. The only thing the management has managed to do is to humiliate and to marginalise senior players, who, luckily for them, are not without appreciation for their talents elsewhere.
In turn, the pressure is placed on this young team to compete with vastly more experienced teams. So, we have these young players on whose inexperienced shoulders the weight of a glorious past is imposed, losing confidence after each disastrous encounter.
I am fed up with the way things are and I’m encouraging my fellow cricket lovers to speak out loudly against the current status. I reject the WIBC and the coach’s mealy-mouthed comments at the end of each loss. No lessons are being learned. No progress is being made.
We have slipped so far down the ratings that we may soon be no better than Netherlands, Canada etc. If managers of any other organisation had presided over such dismal results, they could not have hoped to keep their jobs for so long.
Of the last 32 Test matches we have played, we have won a measly 2!! Whatever the problems are, these managers have proved themselves entirely incapable of solving them. It is time for them to go. Come on people of the West Indies let your voices be heard throughout the Caribbean!
