“We must have our best players playing in our cricket – all aspects of our cricket,” he said in a recent interview with former West Indies fast bowler Ian Bishop.

“You can’t just think that you want all the money. Fellars are being paid pretty well but you must have some love for West Indies cricket. And at the moment I’m not seeing how it could move forward. I would like to see more of a skill set.”

Lloyd, who played in 110 tests and 87 one-day internationals for West Indies between 1974 and 1985, said that regional players are being overwhelmed by their opponents in all forms of the game.  Continue reading
