Former West Indies pace legend Andy Roberts has said that it is sad to see the current state of West Indies cricket in shambles. Roberts, who was in Mumbai for an event, stated that the men from the Caribbean were not even in a position to compete anymore and that was extremely disappointing.
“It doesn’t make me emotional, it is very sad and disappointing to see the level that West Indies cricket has sunk to,” he told reporters. “And I am going to not lay the blame totally on the Board, but I will lay the blame on the feat of the players, because the players have to take up responsibility to develop their cricket, so that they can have positive results.
“You don’t have to win, all you have to do is to compete, but at the moment we (West Indies) are not competing, definitely not competing,” he added. “The ICC should have intervened a long time ago with the administration of West Indies cricket. When they had the problem of cancelled tour of India, the ICC should have intervened then. There is no point of the ICC intervening now. It’s a West Indian problem,” he said.
“And we hope that good sense would prevail with the administrators, so that we can get some of the former players involved with development of the cricket, not the administration…the development of cricket,” Roberts, said.
