Chris Gayle

Gayle wants more money

Windies star batsman Chris Gayle has appealed against what has been deemed inadequate compensation, in a case against Australia Media entity Fairfax Media that was decided in his favour a little over a year ago. In the much-publicized case, the 39-year-old batsman took the media house to court following its publication of sexual misconduct allegations […]

Series blip

GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Roston Chase struck an entertaining fifth Test hundred to take some of the shine off a clinical England performance, as West Indies crashed to a heavy 232-run defeat in the third and final Test today. Asked to chase an improbable 485 after England declared their second innings on 361 for […]

Daunting task

GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Captain Joe Root’s 16th Test hundred helped starve West Indies of meaningful success as England extended their lead to well over 400, to take a stranglehold on the final Test at the Darren Sammy National Stadium today. On a rare day of toil in the three-Test series, the hosts managed […]

Jason Holder

New ball

West Indies captain Jason Holder says it is somewhat disappointing that West Indians such as Jofra Archer and Chris Jordan have thrown in their lot with England, adding they could have increased the existing regional talent pool. But, Holder added in an interview with Sky Sports Cricket that he understood why they had taken such […]

Kirk Edwards

Edwards’ revival

Just over four years ago then 29-year-old Kirk Edwards was Test vice-captain as West Indies defeated Bangladesh by 296 runs in the second Test at Gros Islet, St Lucia. A dip in form saw the former Barbados captain being subsequently ignored by both regional and Barbados selectors. His career nose-dived with a horrid 2014-2015 season […]

Bravo’s ‘practice’ proved perfect

GROS ISLET, St Lucia – Prior to the second Test against England in Antigua last weekend, stroke-maker Darren Bravo had struck eight hundreds and 16 half-centuries in the longest format.

Sobering advice

With West Indies emphatically defeating England in back-to-back Test matches to reclaim the coveted Wisden Trophy, cricket legend Sir Garfield Sobers is warning fans not to get carried away with their expectations of the regional side.  Noting that he was proud of the Jason Holder-led team, Sir Garfield suggested that while belief in one’s team […]

Jason Holder

Holder’s ‘stock’ continues to rise
