Final Australia vs West Indies Womens Match Highlights

Sammy hits WICB for big 6
Just in case the West Indies Cricket Board had plans to take credit for the victory of the men’s team in the World T20 competition, captain Darren Sammy, with the certainty he often shows as a late-order hitter of tremendous power and precision, scuttled the thought from board president Dave Cameron. And he did so before the watching world.

Sammy blue vex in victory
The West Indies team was determined to win a second World T20 title after criticism by the media and its own cricket board ahead of the tournament, captain Darren Sammy said yesterday. Amid a lingering pay dispute, the West Indies Cricket Board had said it was considering sending a second-string team if the players did not agree to its terms.

Players not playing domestic tournaments ineligble for West Indies: Michael Muirhead
During the recent Australian tour coach Phil Simmons publicly stated, twice, that he would like to have the best players available to play for the West Indies across all formats. This obviously goes against the selectors, director of cricket Richard Pybus and your view that those senior players have to play in the domestic formats to be considered for international selection. So with this clash of positions, is there any tension between coach and you guys currently?

  • West Indies?

    Congrats to the Caribbean Cricket team..

  • FLASHBACK: Who’s grovelling now?
    When Tony Greig overstepped the line on the eve of England’s series against West Indies

  • Congratulations to the Windies men, women and under 19 teams. We have every reason to be proud. The men repeating the T20 victory.
    The Windies show they have dept with Badree bowling some of the most conservative overs, and the Jamaicans, Bajans showing they could handle themselves well in the batting line up. Particularly the Bajan all rounder who virtually stole the game from the Brits in one over. Remarkable.

    The Captain shared the pain of the team at the closing sadly remarking that the West Indies Cricket Board did not even call to congratulate them. I am sure that what the West Indies players get paid is nothing near what baseball players get for a season in the US. Yes cricket is a far more exciting game and while baseball players and hockey players get paid millions. The pay issue should have been addressed because these are the best players in the world.

    At their level of play they deserve some respect. If the WICB have a problem then they can look or talk to other Cricket Boards understanding that these athletes are the best in the world and reward them accordingly. Further more it is imperative that Caribbean leaders put in place an advisory leadership board to intervene in situations where necessary. They can help end the pay dispute.

    Congratulations to Sammy and the team on hard fought victories, matches that was determined in the last over showing the character of the team and their dept at taking what may seem like a loss and turning it around. Are there going to be at least a few victory parade in TNT and some of the islands?

  • Bravo labels Cameron ‘immature and small-minded’
    The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron continues to be berated by the regional players, with all-rounder Dwayne Bravo the latest to hit the Jamaican for six. In a television interview yesterday morning, Bravo, still in India following the West Indies’ stunning victory in the World Twenty20 tournament on Sunday, was asked what he thought of Cameron’s tweet on Sunday which stated: “When is the last time a critic paid one of your bills? Always remember that when you start to give them your energy.” Many perceived the tweet to express a sense of indifference to the problems plaguing the team which were outlined by captain Darren Sammy in an emotional speech at the presentation ceremony.
