Saqlain put my head in place: Bishoo
Mon, Jul 6, '15
In the past three years, Devendra Bishoo has represented West Indies only thrice. Despite that, he is among the top five bowlers from the Caribbean who feature in the International Cricket Council’s current list of highest ranked bowlers in Test cricket.
How is that so, some may ask. But the statistic should not surprise those who have closely followed the legspinner’s career, which started with a bang during the 2011 World Cup, plummeted into oblivion after a few poor outings by the next year, and only recently found itself resurrected again – during Australia’s tour to the West Indies.
By September 2011, six months after his One-Day International debut, Bishoo had 21 wickets from five Tests at an average of 35.42, and 19 wickets in 11 ODIs at 21.57, earning him the ICC Emerging Player of the Year award.
But the purple patch did not last, and a series of disappointing stints led to Bishoo’s exclusion from the national squads for all formats by May 2012.

As it considers its fresh mandate, the committee, on which Courtney Walsh and Joel Garner are the only members from the glorious past of fast bowling dominance, is presumably familiar with what prompted the directors' renewed concern.

Sun, Jul 5, '15
Former West Indies Captain and current Chairman of Selectors Clive Lloyd has taken a swipe at cricketers across the region, noting that the mental side of their game is not up to the standard of their opponents. Speaking during a recent ceremony, Lloyd noted that the current hit and miss status that the West Indies Cricket Team has incurred is based on the fact that there is a lack on the mental side of the game.
