"We are only looking for a scapegoat when we all go around talking about getting rid of Lara as it is not his fault that West Indies are playing poorly," Singh was quoted. "We have to examine all the available options and at the moment Jimmy Adams is not certain to be on the next test team and cannot be considered for the captaincy job," said Singh.

He stated that the current problem in Caribbean cricket stems from a lack of quality players as the same players star in the regional cricket competitions.

"When they step into the Test arena they are not doing well. So we have to say that basically we do not have a high level of players of Test calibre in the West Indies," Singh told the Express. "We are looking for players and we have to admit that we are not seeing any sign that the current players can do the job at the highest level," Singh said.

It is the Guyana cricket board they are talking about.

I clearly remember Twissy and some muddie cohorts vigorously campaigning here against Chetty for WICBC Prez

The betting attachment was only being used as an excuse...Twissy and cohorts could not stand an Indo WICB president.

Chetty's betting commendation was MINOR

BTW....Guyana cricket was never in better hands....
