Episode 7 – Upcoming Events with Reds Perreira

Welcome to edition no.7 of The Willow in the WIndies.

Up for discussion this week in my weekly conversation with Reds were:

The Caribbean’s continuing reaction to Jason Holder’s appointment as West Indies’ captain;

The possibility that Brian Lara may become the Minister of Sport for the new government in Trinidad & Tobago;

Clive Lloyd’s interview with Simon Crosskill on The Zone on SportsMax TV, in which Simon suggested Lloyd has put his reputation on the line in backing Holder as captain; plus the implication that Denesh Ramdin may go up the batting order to no.6 (with Shane Dowrich ready to take his place); WIndies’ under-performing tail-end batsmen; plus Lloyd’s dissatisfaction with 2-Test series;

Phil Simmon’s interview on Keith Holder’s Midwicket radio show on CBC in Barbados, in which he called for improved pitches in the region;

The West Indies Women’s upcoming series v Pakistan in St Lucia;

This WICB’s weekend town-hall gathering and Quarterly Directors’ meetings in Antigua;

The apparent closure of the WACA in Perth, Australia as a major Test Match venue;

Issues arising from Rod Marsh’s recent MCC Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture at Lord’s;

Some further memories of Arthur Morris;

And of course Reds’ opinion of the Ben Stokes ‘obstructing the field’ incident.
