You mean he said more than "Gayle and Samuels have great experience to contribute"?

Can't say there isn't much I disagree with him here on.
If he can get the full support of the admin behind him maybe he can lead the turn-around.
One thing he pointed out is that the turn around won't be swift and I agree and it will be a work in progress and if the player on the field can handle that that will be great too.

Good, I look forward to hearing more comments like these from our head coach, where he articulates what is going on with the team, and sharing some of his thoughts with us.

All the boys that had come into the ODI side, outside the Test arena, had been playing T20 cricket back in the Caribbean [in the CPL], which is all smash, bash, crash, which we are very good at.

Laawd!!! that is such an apt description of a format some WI folks boasts so much of. I often feel bad when people label us as T20 kings.....

What's wrong with being the best?

Better than being worst in all formats.

This is the only format we've been adequately prepared for

If it's the pitches, why do we blame the players and anyone else other than CWI?

How else can we make a case for our homeboys if we dont attack players from other territories?

lol lol lol I think Mr. Law has come up with the perfect excuse for team failures. And it’s something that resonates with fans.

I would be really interested in finding out about the benchmarks or incentive clauses in Law’s two-year contract. Don’t know why international head coaches accept two-year contracts, or why CWI would hire a new coach and have his contract term end just prior to a World Cup.

Well according to Mr. Law and Order,
if you get Chris Gayle, Marlon Samuels coming back into this set-up, it is not necessarily about their performance.

It might be a perfect excuse, but for many years, I have believed that pitches have hampered the development of ourbatsmen and made our spinners look like world beater.

He is speaking as an outsider,with no family,friend or cultural influence and nails most of the problems contributing to the teams lack of success, that is in his jurisdiction.

We should remember the reason for the dismissal of Phil Simmons
Something had to give, so I credit Jimmy Adams and the CEO for putting some sense to DD and his board.
