It has been a most interesting first week start to the 2022 New Year for West Indies cricket. The first days of 2022 have produced some exciting appointments to the West Indies Selections Panel, ongoing fitness concerns surrounding at least one key player, as well as a few very enlightening comments from Head Coach Phil Simmons.

Most West Indies cricket fans would have been excited by Cricket West Indies’ successive announcements of the appointments of Sir Desmond Haynes and Ramnaresh Sarwan, as the Selection Chairman and Member replacements for the recently deposed Roger Harper and Miles Bascombe. The reputations of both Haynes and Sarwan, within both the Region and the wider cricketing world, as very well respected, knowledgeable, high caliber former West Indies players are undeniably solid.          Continue reading

CRICKET: No more prima donnas in West Indies teams

By February 12, 2020

Last week Monday, Cricket West Indies’ selection panel released the names of the 15-member squad for the upcoming One-Day International (ODI) Series in Sri Lanka. It was not the routine formal announcement of a group of names but rather a statement to the international cricketing world to ‘sit up and take notice,’ that West Indies cricket is serious business once again.

Evin Lewis, the most outstanding batsman in the recent home series against Ireland, and the young Guyanese batsman, Shimron Hetmyer were the surprising omissions from the team for the Sri Lankan tour.

As they arrive for the Test series against England, the West Indies are average on the field and a shambles off it. There is even talk of regions going it alone. Stephen Brenkley assesses the damage.
