I wish him all the Luck in the World , because he will need much more than that . His intentions are honourable
unfortunately the intentions of the WICBC are not honourable .

At the first hint of things not going well , Adams head more than likely will be on the block . I have never
ever heard any of the Pseudo Sports
Journalists in the Region state that
the problem resides with the WICBC .





Time after time the people in the WICBC have refused to undergo self
examination regarding their Stewardship of Cricket in the Region . The fact that THE READERS BUREAU
facilitates them to mistakenly believe that their Philosophy that
it aint their fault is absolutely
correct .

Very surprised a guy with Jimmy Adam's intellect, would take
a job at this time with the WICB.

Will be shocked if he is there more than 2 years.

It might not be the case that everyone of considerable intellect holds your view of the WICB

Is there any other reason why someone with this considerable intellect will want to join a gravy train other than having a taste?

Maybe he just thinks he can do a good job and improve the team and relations between players and WICB
