Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.

SOMETHING is definitely lacking and not good in Berbice Cricket and the current leaders of the Berbice Cricket Board are totally clueless and have no knowledge of how to administer the game and to lift it to a higher level. As a former administrator of Berbice cricket, it pains my heart to see and observe the poor planning, no vision and the lack o

WHY is Cricket West Indies tampering with history by renaming the only regional entity that has truly united us for more than a century? Sure, you can go ahead and tinker with the name of the governing body, changing it from the West Cricket Board to Cricket West Indies, although that won’t change most people’s perception of that divisive orga

Former Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews By Sudipto Ganguly MUMBAI, India (Reuters) – Sri Lanka have never won a Test in India and with Virat Kohli’s men on a run of near-flawless home form the visitors are unlikely to break their duck in a three-match series starting in Kolkata tomorrow.

This was the mournful news that Kent County Cricket club had decided to “merge”, ie disband, the Lewisham district cricket team, handing it over to a neighbouring borough of simil
