WICB code words -dedication, commitment & focus

Really means...unlikely to be selected by anyone for franchise cricket..now..or any time in the future..

I don't know if i should admire their honesty in admitting that they themselves as an institution are not committed to tackling the chalenges presented by franchise cricket.

So have instead identified the players that would best allow for consistency and continuity in Test cricket...of this lot, only Jason Holder has ever or could ever be considered for franchise cricket..and since he has obviously been offered the post of ODI & Test captain for life...he and he alone, had the comfort of forgoing any potential offer from any franchise, once he gets the call to rep the WI.

The WICB seems very deliberate and clear as to the way forward, they should just come out and admit that this is all their selection policy is about

It is indeed a great Pity that
Dedication ; Commitment & Focus are
traits that are not relevant to those
in the governance of Cricket in the Region .

If they were relevant to those in the
governance of Cricket in the Region ,Our Team would not be floundering at
or near the Bottom in the longer versions of the Game . Evidently they are exempted from those admirable Traits .

It was not my intention to Kill your post ; however there is a very well known adage :

" WHAT IS GOOD FOR THE GOOSE

IS ALSO GOOD FOR THE GANDER "

It is quite evident that those in the
WICBC/CWI , have probably never heard of the expression :

" TEACH BY SETTING AN EXAMPLE "
