HEADLINE: A Quintet Of Rising Windies Stars 2017-10-01 07:43:41 

The West Indies, or Windies, tour of England in 2017 has ended, and in what must be considered a disappointing exercise, but one that ended with a few wonderful and pleasing performances.

The Windies went to England unheralded, played mostly in conditions totally foreign to them, lost the three-match Test series 2-1, won the one-match T20 contest, and lost the five-match confrontation 4-0, a result that sentenced them to battle with Zimbabwe, Ireland, Afghanistan, and company for a place in next year's World Cup.

As bitter as the losses were, as easily as they lost the ODIs, however, the Windies left England with their heads held fairly high and with hope in their breasts.

The pride came from the unexpected brilliant performance at Headingley, where they scored 322 in the last innings to win by five wickets on the last day after the embarrassment of Edgbaston when they lost 19 wickets in one day, to lose in three days, from their decisive victory in the lone T20 fixture, and their fantastic recovery from 33 for three to 356 for five before losing the fourth ODI on the Duckworth Lewis scoring system.

The hope, however, came from the performance of a few youngsters - three batsmen, one bowler, and one all-rounder.

The article is a decent one IMO, I think many of the WI players would be better because of the challenge of playing in English conditions. I think the future of WI cricket is looking brighter because of some of the players who did well on this tour. However, the WI need a reliable spinner and another quality fast bowler to become a better team when all their best players are not available.

The youngsters, who came out with flying colours and provided hope for a bright tomorrow were, however, batsmen Kraigg Brathwaite, Shai Hope, and Evin Lewis; all-rounder Jason Holder; and fast bowler Alzarri Joseph.

Ain't gonna argue with Tony there!
