The Caribbean cricket podcast
Welcome to edition no.2 of The Willow in the WIndies.
Joining me again is Joseph ‘Reds’ Perreira to look at recent events in West Indies cricket and in the wider world.
With England having just secured the Ashes we examine Australia’s shortcomings against the moving ball and consider if this is a neglected skill in the Caribbean too?
We look at the recent success of Guyana in both regional age group cricket and ask if we are seeing a Guyanese renaissance, despite other off-field challenges being faced by the nation?
We also discuss the implications of a newspaper report suggesting many senior international West Indies cricketers have withdrawn from WIPA, the West Indies Players’ Association union.
And finally, we recall two major figures ‘behind the scenes’ of West Indies cricket who died this week: Captain Peter Short in Barbados and Ron Legall in Guyana.
