I think it goes back further than 20/20.......with pay TV introduced to the Caribbean, many youngsters turned to basketball (NBA) and football....not to mention corruption and a lack of forward planning for when the tide turned against them ie youth academies etc etc


Agree with both of this points but 20/20 is the most recent one.

A few West Indian mates all want the WICB to be disbanded and started again

Cons won by an innings and over 200 runs


That might explain why it looked like a movie on when I had my lunch.

David Warner must be disappointed he was the only one who couldn't rack up a century against that rabble.

Warner was always going to struggle against West Indies as normally a second innings wouldn't be needed. Stats show he's better in the second innings than the first.

Quick turn around before tests so they wouldn't want them burnt out, so this gives them the opportunity to have a break.

Also, with so many recent injuries and mid series retirements this year they're probably concerned about that as well if they make them work too hard.

Sadly boring and one sided.

Oh how the might have fallen.

Here is my all time Windies team (based on players I saw play live).

Greenidge
Haynes
V Richards
Lara
Lloyd
Sobers
Dujon
Marshall
Roberts
Holding
Ambrose

If it was a touring party of 17, the remaining five would be Richardson, Kanhai, Gibbs, Murray and Walsh

Definitely would have Walsh in there, first choice of bowlers.

Played against Richardson a few times, an amazing man and batsmen and great with a beer in his hand and the one liners

In the next test should Australia win the toss they should sent the Windies into bat and then declare their first innings at 0/0. If they lose the toss and sent into bat declare at 0/0... make it interesting.

No ages revealed here but I saw him twice in the summer of 1968/69 . I did see him play for the World XI when the South African tour was cancelled in the summer of 1971/72.

I'd have Walsh in my greatest ever World XI. First choice pace bowler in fact.
