T&T: Rebuild Windies from the ground up

Whether the West Indies Test Team wins the final match against England or not in the four-Test series beginning today in Antigua we must take crucially needed decisions, some of them unpleasant, to seek to put us once more on the road to the summit of world cricket. These must include in addition to the removal of the entire West Indies Cricket Board of Control (WICB), the entering into immediate negotiations with the International Cricket Council (ICC) to allow for the West Indies’ withdrawal from Test and International One-day cricket for at least one calendar year. The Region must use this grace period, this sabbatical, to start from scratch, to regroup, to do some serious introspection to see where the WICB and the team went wrong over the past decade or so, and determine what is necessary to effect a cricket renaissance.
