West Indian cricket is a sore topic for me. I have gone through every ritual possible to try to ensure the mediocre could breathe easier. In the end though we know why WI are losing. We are just not good enough. I say we because the failure of WI cricket is a failure of Caribbean society.
Years ago a friend of mine in 1998 told a group of us a story about West Indian players she accompanied to dinner in South Africa not being able to use cutlery properly. Its not an unusual situation.
Most West Indian cricket 'fans' dont actually go to the first class games nor do they patronise the cricketers in their early years. So the average West Indian cricketer rightly sees no connection between the majority of fans and themselves. They are playing for an unassisted buck all the way from u15 cricket to the senior level playing to the applause of a hardy few and the neighborhood goats and sheep.
Then many of the Caribbean fans who are cussing their lack of committment, spend most of their day stupsing their way through work, with scant loyalty for country, employer or anything else for that matter.
Life is so logical eh.
