Media Watch

West Indies pacer Kemar Roach said a helpful pitch and good line and length bowling led to his five-wicket haul in the first innings of the second Test against Bangladesh. “It feels good on a pretty bowler friendly wicket but to go out there and hit the straps early and get some wickets against the Bangladeshis, it is a good feeling for me and the WI,” Roach said.

Roach added the Windies bowlers had a good performance and didnt blame the Bangladesh batsmen with giving away their wickets.

Kingston, Jamaica - New chairman of the West Indies selection panel, Clive Lloyd, believes loyalty should be the order of the day as players contemplate decisions to either represent the West Indies against England or play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) next April.

The West Indies, currently ranked eighth in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Test rankings, are scheduled to face world number three England in a three-match Test series beginning on April 9 and ending May 5, 2015.

Chanderpaul fifty drives lead to 427

Mon, Sep 15, '14


Windies v Bangladesh

Barring the 92 minutes they took in the morning session to bowl Bangladesh out for 161, West Indies batted out the rest of the third day and fortified their hold of the second Test in St Lucia. Their lead sits at a daunting 427 runs after they reached 208 for 4 at stumps.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul batted sturdily to complete his 66th half-century. Jermaine Blackwood, at the other end, looked quite assured as well during a 108-run unbroken stand.

Sir Rebel with a cause

Mon, Sep 15, '14



Before he became a “Sir,” Frank Worrell used to give real, real trouble.
Imagine a contemporary West Indies cricketer, in his very first year in the regional side, refusing, on his own, to go on a tour because he wasn’t being paid enough. Think about a star player of the modern era leaving his homeland and making it public that he was doing so because of the narrow-mindedness and insularity, not just of the ordinary folk, but of the influential, privileged class who were doing very little to promote Caribbean integration, politically as well as socially.
Consider for a moment what would be the reaction if a nation, swept up in the euphoria of a significant achievement and therefore a sense of its own importance, were to be openly admonished for their imminent expression of chronic short-sightedness by a former West Indies cricket captain living in another island.
Frank Worrell was a rebel, but with a cause.

Roach leaves Bangladesh in tatters

Sun, Sep 14, '14


Windies v Bangladesh

Kemar Roach thrilled on his way to a five-wicket haul, leaving the Bangladesh batsmen dazed and confused. His 12-over spell after the tea interval gave West Indies full command at the end of the second day, with the visitors left lurching at 104 for seven.

They are now 276 runs behind West Indies' 380 all out from earlier in the day. The three-man pace attack was what Denesh Ramdin used for all but two overs till stumps.
