ST JOHN'S, Antigua (CMC) — Fast bowling legend Courtney Walsh believes West Indies still need enhancement in key areas, if they are to become serious contenders with next year's Cricket World Cup in England on the horizon.

The Jamaican, currently the interim head coach of Bangladesh, identified competitiveness and consistency as the issues with the side, noting they needed “some fine-tuning” if they were to improve.

“I think consistency is the key. When I followed the games in the World Cup Qualifiers, I think we were up and down and a little bit inconsistent,” Walsh told Observer Radio's Good Morning Jojo Sports Show.

“And I am not sure as to the structure they have or what they are looking to work towards but there [are things] when I look at [them] from the outside that definitely could do with some fine-tuning to sort of make them more competitive and a little bit more consistent.”
