I have said IT before, let me say it again.
The West Indies should NO LONGER be allowed to play INTERNATIONAL Cricket.
The pathetic, apathetic, groveling performance in Hobart, against Australia, in the 1st Test, PROVED, conclusively, what I have maintained.
Australia, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Bangladesh, England, Zimbabwe, India, Pakistan & South Africa are NATIONS, proud ones at that, and those that play for those NATIONAL SIDES do so with PATRIOTISM & PRIDE.
There is NO NATION called the West Indies.
They are but a meaningless franchise and it shows.
There is NO PRIDE, no patriotism, NOTHING.
It is a bloody disgrace.
In 1976 the proud West Indians of that era smouldered when Tony Greig said he would make them grovel.
This bunch of pathetic pussies grovel without even been asked to.
STOP THIS CHARADE.
Yes, Kraigg Brathwaite, who I have applauded in the past, did OK. But his 63.51% does NOT compare to Gordon Greenidge‘s (who my son is named after) efforts. For a start, Gordon, my hero, scored a century. Brathwaite, as if to PUNCTUATE what is wrong with the West Indies, fell short. In 1976 the West Indies WON by 425 runs. After Brathwaite the West Indies LOST by an INNINGS and 212 runs. Does not compare.
