Hoss…….you realize Clive led the WI to being the best team in the world without a manager right? Are you going to blame Phil for not one WI batsman averaging over 40?

West Indies teams from the git go had managers. Clive Lloyd's world beaters were no exception.

How did Sammy get into this discussion about captaincy?
Did someone suggest that he should be made captain?
I am aware that I said that he should be the Coach instead of Simmons.The Coach requires a different skill set than the captaincy.

In any event let us get back to captaincy of the West Indies.It seems to me that the Test captaincy is settled and we are looking at the white ball captaincy.

The incumbent Nicholas Pooran has had a rough year with significant loss of personal form in the ODI's and inconsistency in the T 20's.We are therefore looking at possible alternatives in case things continue to go south with Pooran. It seems to me that those to be considered are Rovman Powell, Shimron Hetmyer and Kyle Mayers.All of them have their positives and negatives and it would be prudent to watch these three over the rest of the CPL and reappraise the situation after the World Cup.It is a pity that TKR did not appoint Pooran as captain for CPL 2022.

Lara was one of the best batters the world has ever seen. Watching him destroy bowling attacks was a joy to watch. His records still stand to this day. Simply put, he was a batting genius. He had to pull a team on the decline over the line on several occasions. He also was the captain of the team that won the ICC Champions Trophy. However, despite Lara's talent, he was not popular with his team mates. Perhaps it was jealousy or just the fact that he was arrogant. Either way, I appreciate his achievements and his commitment to West Indies cricket.
As for Mr. Sammy, he has punched well above his weight and is a champion. Say what you like about him but he is a two time t20 World Cup winning captain. Take some time to think about it. DS doesn't need your affirmation. big grin

I doubt you could call Sammy punching above his weight when he captained sides containing gayle, the greatest t20 of all time, pollard(the man with the 2nd most amount of sixes, DJ Bravo, t20 crickets leading wicket taker, narine, samuels, Rampaul, Simmons, Dre Rus, Badree etc. He simply had the best players on offer in the format. And captaining the team would not have been that hard because all of these guys were the best of friends prior to the world cups, starting with Gayle and DJ.

You do realize that Walcott, Sir Wes Hall and Lance Gibbs, the managers during the 80s, were not managers in the footballing sense as how you’re describing it. The first coaching manager was Bob Simpson, who came along when Allan Border wished to get his team better as the basics of the game in the late 80s

This is why Sammy used wisdom and let the better players shine, while he used his man management skills to get the best out of the team



Well said!

I agree with you. Pooran’s personal form has deserted him and I remember satying on this site that his form wasn’t exactly great before the captaincy and I didn’t know how the pressure would affect his batting. Obviously it has had a detrimental effect, despite a few class innings. But I’m also saying you can’t expect him to perform when the entire team is falling cheap around him. When the WI started losing consistently after Walsh and Ambrose retired, Lara wasn’t even captain, just the man expected to score most of the runs and his average dipped below 50 in 2001. Look at a foreign example. Angelo Matthews at one times averaged over 50 in tests. With SL’s decline as a test nation, his form suffered and he averages 45, which is still very good but it’s a big decrease

Kyle is a proven leader at club level and all his teams from junior level has won titles. He leads from the front and always puts his team first, only ever interested in WINNING. All his players will run through the proverbial wall for Dappa.

Why is he only in the mix now? It’s the same reason why he was not in the mix before as a player in deference to every other less talented player from Carlos, to Carter, to Stoute, to Nurse, to Greaves, to Primus and the list goes on. Simply a victim of the cliques in BIM cricket.

Everything happens in its time and we who know will silently watch on. He always said , “my time will come and I will be ready”.

This guy is as honest as the day is long; wonderfully genuine; very accessible especially to the juniors at his club; loves his cricket; and most of all, understands the rich heritage of West Indies cricket and what it means to the fans.
