  1. We can all have our thoughts on Darren Sammy's end of match speech but here is the truth. Successive WICBs have managed West Indies cricket as if they were managing an ordinary company which is the reason for the state of West Indies cricket right now. West Indies cricket should be managed as a sporting franchise as this is what it rightfully is. Instead we have a board managing cricket as if they were managing their local grocery store where the boss is in charge and basically doing employees a favor by employing them. Sports is different, the athletes and the performance of the athletes build the reputation of the sporting franchise. Franchises then capitalize on the popularity of their athletes to generate income through the sales of merchandise and sporting events. Unfortunately while other territories have gone into another gear the WICB remained stagnant, only recognizing the need for a high profile tournament after seeing the success of the other countries. Time for a change. Yes I'm saying it. Time to bring in a board of directors who have experience in professional sports franchise management. And no, I don't mean experience managing W Connection in Trinidad or Defence Force in Jamaica but professional sports management like a San Antonio Spurs or Barcelona or Real Madrid. If we really want to West Indies to grow we must make sacrifice. I know it will cost a lot....... Learn from the past mistakes. For those who "just come" there was a similar situation in the 70's and 80's when the board did not have the foresight to recognize that the cricketers are professionals nor realized the potential of televised franchised cricket... Do some research.... This is not new to WICB but its shameful that the results is the same.

    • I agree, the marketing of the team is questionable. You are so correct we need a brand!
