For some strange reason, there is
this belief that harsh words can force
failing athletes into a winning mode.
We can all understand the frustra-
tion of angry fans who have been
awaiting a return to the top by our
West Indian players. Not even the
resounding beatings from India and
New Zealand could force the diehards
into submission that the recovery is
not yet under way.
Despite the fact that fans are there
to provide words of consolation and
encouragement to the present crop of
players, the regularity of the players
failure to demonstrate the quality of
the past stars, lends itself to a constant
repeat of mediocrity.
The false attempt to market the
upcoming series regionally and inter-
nationally, does not have any sub-
stance, especially when these words
of promise are coming from Messrs
Cameron, the chairman of the WICB,
and the new kid on the block Richard
Pybus, the director of WI cricket.
I often wonder if the board members
of the WICB offered any opinion dur-
ing discussions which relate to analyses
of our teams performances.
I have listened very carefully to
recent interviews done by the two
gentlemen, both of which did not offer
a semblance of what the problems
are, on or off the pitch.
Can we not come to terms with
reality and recognise that West indies
cricket is in dire need of some bet-
ter-trained students of the great game,
and exceptional communication skills
to convince the players of their defi-
ciencies and open a few corridors for
It is much more than the superficial
approach to the batting, bowling and
fielding, all of which do not remind
us even remotely of the great players
who took this region to the top of
Is it accurate to assume that we are
devoid of even a single world-class
player, maybe with the exception of
the ageing Shiv Chanderpaul, around
whom we can reproduce competence
in the near future?
We can easily blame ourselves for
jumping the gun by headlining per-
formances which are moderate in
quality and nothing in comparison to
the types which took us to the pre-
There was sufficient time for the
strong heads in the current technical
aspects of our game to attempt to
guide us as to what really are the rea-
sons for this abysmal state of our
Where are the constructive voices
of coach Otis Gibson, selectors Clyde
Butts, Courtney Browne and Robert
Haynes, all of whom have been part
of the selection process of this present
Any coach will readily admit that
progress comes from the observation
of mistakes, the relatively remedial
instruction, and the demand for play-
ers to indulge in proficiency at practice
sessions and specifically on match
Of all the glib chatter which has hit
the airwaves and news print, no one
has yet made an effort to console the
supporters with hope for a better
What is even more disgusting is
that we are about barking upon a
regional ODI Caribbean series when
these same players will be competing
against each other in the home ter-
Surely, the standard of play will not
allow us to judge our true mettle, sim-
ply because our competence is below
the level of the international game.
So the fans, especially those who
are visiting for Carnival, will have to
be served up with much of our Car-
nival activities, mixed in with what
little will be displayed on the pitch.
Will the fans get their money s
worth? Yes, because of the dancing
girls, our famous calypso bards plus
food and drink which bring joy and
satisfaction to all.
However, with four matches com-
pleted, the crowds have not shown
that there is sufficient excitement at
Admittedly, Chanderpaul and Sar-
wan s batting competence and expe-
rience, plus a sprinkling of improve-
ment from fast bowlers, Holder,
Seaton, and the return of Taylor,
brought some level of satisfaction to
the handful of spectators.
In the batting department, T&T
was clearly the guiltiest of these prob-
lems. Barath s desire to play uncon-
trolled square cuts, Simmons to
attempt high risks shots on a wicket
that has variable bounce and pace,
Cooper s nothing shot, attempted
when he has not yet occupied the
crease enough to understand the wick-
et, and Mohammed s premeditated
desire to play lofted drives when he
is not in control, are all the reasons
why we failed to bring joy to the fans.
Now the task has become more dif-
ficult and it will force us to live our
game. Hopefully Sunil Narine will
come to our rescue.

Can Narine rescue T&T?
