Notes from a small island
A weblog by Jonathan Ali

Friday, April 04, 2003  

"The bare, unpalatable truth remains inescapable: in the only sphere in which they were truly independent, and even though it goes against the grain of their wider political history, the West Indies have brought in a foreign white man to tell them what to do.

"Theoretically, that ought to sting sharply. In the last few years, though, as they have watched their cricket go from bad to Bangladesh-being-a-worry, West Indians have become as pragmatic as they once were idealistic. Caribbean cricket is not yet out of trouble and it will escape that much sooner if it takes the best advice. The WICB is persuaded that such best advice is to be had from the place that has just produced the best cricket team of all time."
