Lara: West Indies Test problems not solved by money

by
5d ago
West Indies great Brian Lara does not think their current issues in Test cricket would be resolved by solely investing more money. They are eighth in the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) Test rankings, having been a dominant force in the 1980s when they set a then-record 11 consecutive Test victories. In contrast they failed to win any of their three Test series in 2023, but did pick up their first red-ball win in Australia since 1997 earlier this year. “If you put 100 million, 200 million dollars into the West Indies’ bank account, is it going to change the way we play the game? I’m not ..read more

He said all he wanted to do was contribute to a win. James Anderson got his wish, though the Lord's crowd were denied the fairytale five-for that seemed there for the taking at the start of day three. He finished with three in the innings, four in the match, and 704 for a Test career that has spanned more than two decades, as England completed the formalities of a crushing victory over West Indies. As Anderson took his final bow, the centre stage was claimed by his latest successor. Gus Atkinson ripped out three more wickets to finish a brilliant first outing with match figures of 12 for 106 ..read more

Samara Ramnath shone with the bat and ball to lead TT to a six-wicket victory over Windward Islands when round three of the West Indies Rising Stars Women’s U19 T20 Championship continued at Brian Lara Cricket Academy, Tarouba, on July 9. The off-spinner wreaked havoc with the ball and took a mesmerising three wickets for five runs from fours overs and was key to restricting the visitors to a paltry 60/9, batting first. TT, defending champions, made light work of the target as opener Ramnath led the hosts to a victorious 61/4, with her top score of 28 not out. When Windwards batted, they lost ..read more

Kraigg Brathwaite: Brisbane win is 'history' as West Indies face England challenge

Kraigg Brathwaite says that West Indies' stunning victory over Australia in Brisbane is "history" as his team turns its attention to Wednesday's first Test against England at Lord's. However, he hopes that the confidence gleaned from that performance in January will help lift an inexperienced line-up as they prepare for another tough test of their mettle. Going into the second Test of that Australia tour in January, West Indies were given next to no hope of competing at a venue where the hosts had lost just once in 34 Tests dating back to 1988, especially after an emphatic ten-w ..read more
