All the good which the West Indies cricketers might have done just over a month ago here in the warm, tropical climate of the Caribbean, evaporated in a matter of days in the cold, wintry weather of England. For the West Indies Cricket Board and the West Indies Team itâ€™s back to the drawing broads.
The comprehensive 2-0 defeat, both well within the five days of the Test matches, to the old enemy on their own territory could hardly have been surprising.
Not only did it put a stop to the positive advances which Chris Gayleâ€™s team made in the Caribbean, it sent the WICB and windies team back to square one.
The truth of the matter is leadership, both on and off the field, is lacking. As a people we are finding it difficult to attract the right caliber of players – those with a renewed and meaningful spirit that will make a conscious effort to improve the standard of the game in the region, and to lead us out of our current dilemma.
