West Indies cricket continues to decline and it is evident that there is no proper structure in place to move in forward drafting new officials in to the management level has earned little success at the lower level but the senior team is still struggling for consistency. The players have to show much more actions of professionalism and until as one team.
It is important that the West Indies selectors embark on a plan to select a new Test captain. A comprehensive study must be done on how to rebuild the Test squad. The team must not be based only on the batting performance of its players but also the need to have a variety of bowlers.
WINDIES HAVE TALENTED PLAYERS
West Indies cricket is not short on quality players needed to gain success on the field. What is lacking is good leadership and the implementation of proper strategies. At this level and time, Denesh Ramdin, West Indies wicket keeper batsman should be the choice to lead the Test team. West Indies bowlers Kemar Roach, Tino Best, Sunil Narine, Nikita Miller and Ravi Rampaul have sufficient experience to battle any opposition.
The West Indies management must focus heavily on rebuilding the Test squad and coach Ottis Gibson must exempt himself and allow a new coach to handle the challenge.
GIBSON AND SAMMY MUST GO
The image is a factor in respect to West Indies cricket and the cricketing world have seen enough of Ottis Gibson as coach and Darren Sammy as captain of the West Indies team. Nikita Miller and Narsingh Deonarine have major roles to play for the West Indies in the Test. A strong middle order batting is essential in Test cricket and these batsmen must be knowledgeable of their roles.
Spinners are playing a critical role in West Indies cricket at all levels. This can be seen from the credible performances of Samuel Badree and Sunil Narine from Trinidad and Tobago and Nikita Miller, the left-arm spinner from Jamaica.
