The Caribbean cricket podcast
Welcome to edition no.5 of The Willow in the WIndies.
Once again Reds and I got together to discuss recent cricketing events in the Caribbean. The hot topics in the tropics we covered this week included:
The implications of the devastating storms in Dominica;
We speculated on the West Indies squad to be announced for the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka;
We discussed the qualities of Denesh Ramdin’s captaincy;
The value of playing county cricket for Fidel Edwards and Shannon Gabriel;
The usefulness (or otherwise) of the WICB’s regional territory town-hall meetings;
What we hope to see come out of the upcoming report by Dr Keith Mitchell’s panel investigating cricketing governance in the region;
I asked Reds whether the retiring Michael Clarke and Kumar Sangakkara were ‘greats’ or just ‘very goods’?;
And I asked if we had seen the last of Shiv Chanderpaul in Test cricket?
