I am concerned about the state of Leeward Islands cricket especially as one who represented the West Indies at the Highest Level with guys from the Leeward Islands such as Sir Vivian Richards and Sir Curtley Ambrose.
We the Cricket Legends of Barbados wrote to the board offering to assist them in improving the standard of their cricket and got no reply.
For the last 4 years we saw the decline and its boggles the mind why the WICB did not act on this, taking into consideration the cricketers the Leeward Islands have produced and what they have done for West Indies cricket. Are we at Cricket Legends the only ones who see this gap in our regional cricket?
I am not surprised at what is happening, I am disappointed that we rushed into a professional set up without first addressing the standard of our Cricket. Does the Barbados Tridents need overseas players ? Should we really take away players from the Leeward Islands in a so call draft system ?
Please give a bonus to the committee that sorts out the weak links in our cricket.
