West Indies celebration is unwarranted
chairman
opinion
Says Stephan Sookram  FLIPPING through social media Wednesday morning, I notice that there     are a lot of cheers and congratulations going around for the West Indies team that qualified for the World Cup 2019 set for England and Wales. But why are people celebrating? We haven’t won the cup. As a matter of fact, they playe
Dave Cameron’s sexist malfeasance
chairman
opinion
Dave Cameron, the president of Cricket West Indies, has the too-well-deserved reputation for engaging in intellectual malfeasance, of chatting nonsense at the most inopportune time, and of having the dexterity to place his foot in his own mouth. And he has the skill to accomplish all three at the same time. The latest example of Mr Cameron's malady
Dave Cameron is perceived as having passed judgement on the West Indies careers

Cricket West Indies President Dave Cameron is perceived as having passed judgement on the West Indies careers of Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard. Hopefully he has been misquoted or what he said was taken out of context. While one can understand the disappointment felt by President Cameron he is expected to show a bit more restraint an
Rest in peace cricket
chairman
opinion
  The Anglos, the English and the Australians, ran cricket for two hundred years, and but for occasional blights like limiting the number of bouncers when the Windies were bashing their heads in, they handled the game fair and square. India won the world cup in 1983, which sent the country into paroxysms of ecstasy. The tournament was held in
Geoffrey Boycott: England's focus on T20 cricket shortchanging the test arena
chairman
opinion
  OPINION: Money and self-interest are the guiding principles of those who run our wonderful game, not what is best for cricket. Many English counties are on the breadline or in serious debt like Yorkshire. They are trying to survive hand to mouth every year, so whenever the 18 county chairmen meet to discuss English cricket and its
Are West Indian Players Committed To Caribbean Cricket?
chairman
News
The West Indies have fielded an understrength team in all formats of the game, except T20 Internationals in the past few years. The situation is progressively getting worse, and in their most recent series against New Zealand, they were even unable to field a full strength, T20 team. This dire situation is the result of several factors including th
Drastic action needed now to save West Indies cricket
chairman
opinion
Guyana Government must act to end local impasse THE West Indies have just completed yet another disappointing overseas tour—this time the team failed to win a single game across the three formats they played in New Zealand. This must surely go down as one of the most depressing campaigns by a West Indies team, even in an era of sub-standard perform
Woes, blows, more sorrow for our cricket
chairman
opinion
As the West Indies cricketers slip out of New Zealand from their Australasian nightmare, not only Cricket West Indies (CWI) but mainly the players themselves have to do much soul-searching. Coach of the beleaguered side Stuart Law has already made that call for great introspection. For CWI it might also be time to take a number of serious remedial
What WI need by Rudi V. Webster
chairman
opinion
Dr. Rudi Webster TOO often we in the Caribbean believe that we are not good enough; something is not working and needs to be fixed; something is missing; and something special needs to be added to make us worthwhile. The key to our success already lies inside us but these limiting beliefs hide it and conceal the wealth within. The following story i
The recent debacle and the state of West Indies cricket
chairman
News
THE West Indies cricket team has just wrapped up another test series and predictably was badly beaten by a New Zealand team that could hardly be described as top flight. In the first test our boys were bounced out in the first innings by Neil Wagner; and although there was some resistance in the second innings, we invariably collapsed to hand the K
