The Willow in the WIndies – bat no. 6

Episode 6 – Holder In, Ramdin Out with Reds Perreira

Welcome to edition no.6 of The Willow in the WIndies.

Reds and I got together this week in the immediate aftermath of the announcement of West Indies’ tour party for the Test series in Sri Lanka – which included the news that Denesh Ramdin had been sacked as captain in place of Jason Holder.

We discussed this appointment, and the make-up of the side, especially the choice of spinners and opening batsmen.

We also discussed the value of the meeting held in Barbados between Phil Simmons, Clive Lloyd, Richard Pybus and the head coaches of the Caribbean’s regional territorities’ teams.

And we saluted Trinidad umpire Joel Wilson who is officiating the current Ashes ODI series in England.

    Hello! Love the play on words there. It would be good to have links to Twitter and Facebook etc on this email and on the actual web page, so people can easily share the post and get it seen more widely. Sara

      You are quite right Sara! Things I need to look at. Reckon I need to get you to help me with a ‘refresh’ of this blog – if you are willing! Btw – belated happy 1st anniversary. Must have been sometime recently if memory serves.
