Greenidge wants free rein for Lloyd

Fri, Aug 29, '14


Clive Lloyd

The West Indies hierarchy must give new chairman of selectors Clive Lloyd a free rein to make the changes that will inspire a turnaround in fortunes for the national team, according to batting great Gordon Greenidge.
Denesh Ramdin's side completed a 3-0 one-day whitewash of Bangladesh on Monday but the West Indies are ranked a lowly eighth in both the ODI and Test rankings.

Sweeping changes were made behind the scenes earlier this month with Lloyd taking over as chairman of selectors from Clyde Butts and being joined by new panel members Courtney Walsh and Eldine Baptiste.

Can keep, can bat

Fri, Aug 29, '14


Statistically Speaking

The modern wicketkeeper needs to be more than capable with the bat, and West Indies and Pakistan have had some success with them recently.

"Another team which struggled to get runs from their wicketkeeper - till fairly recently - was West Indies. Ramdin has been around in international cricket for almost a decade now, but after a promising start, there was a long period when his batting had faded badly. In his first 42 Tests, Ramdin's Test average was 22.80, quite poor by today's standards, and it wasn't a surprise when he was replaced by Carlton Baugh." writes J Rajesh in an ESPNcricinfo article
