    West Indies Board should take the credit for these defeats. Sorry for the players who are trying but they aren’t feeling motivated to play after the sacking of Sammy and Simmons within a month.

      Michael you beat me to it. From the time I saw this article I logged in to say the exact thing you said. The defeats are for the board and selectors. Dave Cameron and Courtney Browne tek dat.

    So that means the board and officers will be fired for poor performance?

    The team cricketing skills & techniques leaves a lot to be desired..They build up too much dot balls..they dont run bxt wickets with intensity..The bowlers do not vary their pace nor adjust their bowling angle. Johnson Charles need to work on his batting skills. The impact of coaching is not seen in the performance of the team.

    Unfortunately not! Poor players will take the fall again! And the same old continues until the Board is forced to step down.

    How can one blame the Board and selectors if those same players are the ones who are performing on the local scene ? Gayle has a bad back,Russell asked to be excused because of the drug issue and Sammy NEVER used to perform and there are no other players who have the experience and who have been performing consistently as those in the UAE.
    G G Billingy ..I agree with you 100 %, they not only lack lack the skills,they are NOT playing as a TEAM.

    As long as board and selectors are picking their friends to play they will never win the entire cricket board must be cleanse of politics

    They are playing to the best of they abilities. That said, there is very little ability anywhere in this team. From the top down ,there isn’t anyone that has shown that they are capable of batting long and sensibly . If this lot represent the best we have to offer ,many of us will die of old age before we will ever see a West Indian team that is competitive once the likes of Gale , D.Bravo, Sammy, is gone. There is no one on the team that can read a googlely from an off break. Not a fellow that can play a swinging ball.We don’t even deserve to be allowed in the Test Arena right now playing against the top teams ,it is not only shameful, but embarrassing,and humiliating .
    Our selectors are jokers,none of who ever achieved any thing of note playing cricket,but yet we expect them to be experts in selecting teams to represent our nations. What a joke.We obviously are under achievers who are willing to settle for cheap labor.(selectors and Chairman) Maybe the price is right.That could be the only reason those in charge are holding the positions they have.

    You think that westindies could win a game .People have feelings. How do you expect to drop Sammy and Phil Simmons at the same time just before a series. I think that Jason Holder should resign as captain before the board drop him.The selectors put that poor boy under so much pressure just before a series. Physiological pressure.How could the young man perform under so much pressure.He is just a human being.

    Thank God I was privileged to witness Windies cricket when we bestrode The World.

    Jason Holder should step down as Captain. Who will be the next fool to step forward. Carlos Brathwaithe most probably! Before you look around Afghanistan will be beating West Indies! Stuppps’!!!!
