Riley makes case to retain presidency

Conde Riley is not daunted over the possibility that Joel Garner may be entering the race for the presidency of the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) when elections are held on August 14 at Kensington Oval.  On July 27, 2017, Riley was elected president of the BCA after Garner the then incumbent president did not run […]

Americans emerging from Bolt’s shadow

Meltdown

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – The senior West Indies team’s World Cup batting virus seems to be spreading. A familiar batting meltdown thwarted West Indies A’s pursuit of a very modest total and sent them crashing to a disappointing 65-run loss to India A, in the opening 50-over clash today. Chasing 191 for victory at Coolidge […]

Deryck Murray

Misplaced expectations, says Murray

Former West Indies vice-captain Deryck Murray believes the Caribbean side read too much into their performance against England in the five-match one-day series earlier this year, and it provided a false premise for unrealistic expectations at the World Cup. West Indies held the world number one and World Cup favourites, England, to a 2-2 draw […]

Shai Hope

‘Blame us, not the change of coach’

LEEDS, England – West Indies’ batsman Shai Hope has dismissed suggestions that the last-minute coaching change which saw Floyd Reifer taking up the job as head coach a month before the start of the ICC World Cup, was to blame for the Windies’ poor showing in the tournament. The regional team won just two of […]

The 8th Women’s World Cup, which kicked off on June 7, culminated Sunday evening at Parc […]

Chris Gayle

Gayle’s last hurrah?

He opened the batting, and scored an 18-ball 7. He bowled six overs and picked up a wicket. He strutted around the Headingley turf, mostly with a big smile on his face, and threw in as much drama as possible into pouching a sitter on the field and, if that wasn’t enough, proceeded to do […]

Carlos Brathwaite

‘Bright spots amid the disappointment’

LEEDS, England – All-rounder Carlos Brathwaite believes West Indies must immediately embark on a rebuilding effort in the wake of their disastrous showing at the ICC World Cup.
