HEADLINE: ‘Not all great players are good teachers’- Clive Lloyd 2020-05-22 05:49:37 

Legendary West Indies captain Clive Lloyd agrees in principle with former players stepping in to provide mentorship for the new generation but has called for a careful screening process to get the best outcome from the experience.

The 75-year-old Lloyd has been respected for generations, not just for his cricketing ability but steady and inspiring leadership, which saw the West Indies lift back-to-back ICC World Cup titles in 1975 and 1979.

“We have to find out how strong they are in certain departments.  You can’t just say this guy is going to be this when he isn’t suited for that role.  You have to find out what strengths he or she has,” Lloyd told the Mason and Guest Radio program.

I am sure Lloyd knows this more than most.

Captain of a great WI team.....but failed miserably trying to give back to the game after his playing days...but one has to factor in the cricket politics he faced as an administrator and selector.

Talk bout Adrian Griffith's cover drive pass leg slip,oh it's Ragoonath and he was picked when his career was coming to an end at the age of 31.The selectors made sure he wasn't picked when he was younger and at his best,not so for Adrian Griffith and even Stuart Williams.
