After Fazeer picked himself up off the commentary box floor, still dazed he goes, "Pollard was a very good first class cricketer when he started out". This time it was I who hit the floor.

Atrocious commentary - they made our home team look good

didn't Pollard win a tri-nation home series that included Oz n RSA in the WI early days? What was the relevance of them bringing up Polly by the way, I neither listened nor watched.

They were having discussions about player development the demands of test cricket vs 20/20. Of course it was only a few days before that Pollard made the ridiculous and stupendous comment that they needed another 20/20 league to develop 20/20 players.

Genuinely some of the most clueless cricket commentary I've heard in a long time.

The guy has contradicted himself 45 times in the last three days and yesterday's Pollard and white-ball rant was ridiculous.

I feel genuinely sorry for Fazeer and Bish when they have to hear the same repetitive crap from every expert who thinks they are the only ones who know why Windies cricket has declined.

A big reason why we decline is no sustainable grass root program. No Academies and no vision.

The commentary was horrible and Fazeer was no better either but the truth is an offence to those who don't want to hear it.

I don’t see the relevance to the current Test series
The Test team doesn’t have the albatross of the “bully, sour, toxic Pouty” and how is that working out for them?

Somebody really did say yesterday that we can’t blame Polly for this one…then lo(w) and behold sir carl00

What I provided was merely the end of a discussion that was taking place and taken on its own, out of the context of the discussion that was going on live at the time, it would appear to someone who did not hear the entire discussion or too close minded or know nothing about test cricket... it would appear that it is not relevant.

Pollard is symptomatic of all that's wrong with WI cricket!!! Shortcut cricketer ascending to a position of leadership and does not know what the hell he is doing and then leading the entire region astray.
