Cricket: West Indies stars offered ‘temporary amnesty’ by board

West Indies stars offered ‘temporary amnesty’ by board

Hard-line selection policy to be relaxed

With West Indies in a race to qualify for the 2019 World Cup, their cricket board has offered “temporary amnesty” to the players who do not fit their selection criteria in order to have them available to play ODIs. This could pave way for the return of stars such as Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Sunil Narine, Samuel Badree as soon as next month when the team is scheduled for a tour of England, as had been earlier reported by ESPNcricinfo.

Cricket West Indies (CWI) has had a stringent policy of picking only those players who are active in the domestic one-day tournament for 50-over internationals. But, with one eye on putting the best XI on the park, the board and the West Indies Players Association have called a truce.

The Politics of West Indies Cricket – by Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Dr. Dhanpaul Narine

Kevin Pietersen’s book is a good place to start. His views are less about cricket and more about the politics of pettiness in English cricket.

After criticizing the state of English cricket Pietersen says, ‘you need stars if you want to grow your game.’ There is word that another star Shivnarine Chanderpaul is writing a book about his treatment by the cricket administration in the West Indies. When this book is published will we read about the politics of West Indies manipulative tactics?

Here is one for the purists: In November 2013 Dave Cameron, President of the West Indies Cricket Board, paid tribute to Shivnarine Chanderpaul for becoming the first West Indian to play in 150 Tests.  Continue reading

Cricket World Cup 2015: Gayle’s 215 is first WC double century; 372 with Samuels breaks records

Chris Gayle 215 vs Zimbabwe- WC 2015

Gayle scores 215- fastest ODI double century – 16 sixes equals ODI record

After scoring the fastest ODI double-hundred, against Zimbabwe on Tuesday, Chris Gayle admitted he had been under pressure to score runs following a lean run of form recently. Gayle’s 215, which came off 147 balls, was the fifth double-hundred in ODIs and the first in a World Cup, and his record 372-run stand with Marlon Samuels the highest in ODIs – propelled West Indies to a formidable 372 for 2 in Canberra.

Gayle said that people had been expecting him to score a double-hundred for a while now and was happy to deliver. “There has been a lot of pressure. The runs haven’t been coming,” Gayle said. “It’s the first time in my career that so many people wanted me to score runs. The messages kept coming in – on Twitter. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen that so many people wanted me to perform. I’m glad I gave them something to cheer about.  Continue reading

Ramnaresh Sarwan with his man-of-the-match trophy

At 33, former West Indies and Guyana Captain Ramnaresh ‘Ronnie’ Sarwan seems to have found a new lease on life.

The elegant right-hander, who was recently married, started off the 2014 Regional NAGICO Super50 cricket tournament in Trinidad & Tobago with a scintillating unbeaten 89 from 62 balls with 10 fours and two sixes to spur Guyana to an emphatic 114-run win over Ireland at the Queens Park Oval on Friday night January 31, 2014.

He seems to be more settled mentally and more importantly a lot fitter now and the way he oozed confidence in his 49th 50-overs fifty suggested that he was almost back to Sarwan of old.  Continue reading
