Windies must shed power hitting label to progress claims Ambrose

  Former Windies fast bowler Curtly Ambrose. West Indies bowling legend Curtly Ambrose believes a new generation of cricketers must lose the label of ‘power hitting team’ if they are to take another major step in a positive direction. Heading into the ongoing ICC World Cup, the Windies were picked as a dark horse by pundits and fans alike, in

Over nearly three decades, Apa Sherpa has witnessed the effects of a warming climate and an overcrowded peak. I was born in Thame, Nepal, around 1960. I’m not exactly sure what year. When I was 12 years old, my father passed away. He was
The team must make believers of the rest of the region, too. They carry a lot on their shoulders: history, expectations, and memories. Now is not the time to look back. Just deal with the Boults and citizen Kane(s) and with dispatch and the usual flair. Can be done. Be a believer today. Bangladesh has not given up, as it eyes a place in the semis;
Dear Editor, THE current euphoria about the Cricket World Cup amongst global fans is mainly due to the open nature of the tournament. In this Championship, there are three highly regarded favourites: India, Australia and tournament host, England. Furthermore, Pakistan, Sri Lanka and South Africa retain loyal fan-bases in their homelands and large D
Cricket West Indies (CWI), formerly West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) is the governing body for professional and amateur cricket in the West Indies.

THE West Indies cricket team’s short but successful tour to Karachi for a three-match T20 series is being seen as Pakistan’s biggest step yet towards the restoration of international cricket in the country. Foreign players were unwilling to visit the country after the 2009 terrorist attack on the Sri Lanka team in Lahore. However, a tour by a high-
Says Stephan Sookram  FLIPPING through social media Wednesday morning, I notice that there     are a lot of cheers and congratulations going around for the West Indies team that qualified for the World Cup 2019 set for England and Wales. But why are people celebrating? We haven’t won the cup. As a matter of fact, they playe
Dave Cameron, the president of Cricket West Indies, has the too-well-deserved reputation for engaging in intellectual malfeasance, of chatting nonsense at the most inopportune time, and of having the dexterity to place his foot in his own mouth. And he has the skill to accomplish all three at the same time. The latest example of Mr Cameron's malady
Cricket West Indies President Dave Cameron is perceived as having passed judgement on the West Indies careers of Sunil Narine, Darren Bravo and Kieron Pollard. Hopefully he has been misquoted or what he said was taken out of context. While one can understand the disappointment felt by President Cameron he is expected to show a bit more restraint an
  The Anglos, the English and the Australians, ran cricket for two hundred years, and but for occasional blights like limiting the number of bouncers when the Windies were bashing their heads in, they handled the game fair and square. India won the world cup in 1983, which sent the country into paroxysms of ecstasy. The tournament was held in
  OPINION: Money and self-interest are the guiding principles of those who run our wonderful game, not what is best for cricket. Many English counties are on the breadline or in serious debt like Yorkshire. They are trying to survive hand to mouth every year, so whenever the 18 county chairmen meet to discuss English cricket and its
