Reese, I think West Indies had their best captain in Clive Lloyd, and there won’t be anyone like him for quite some time to come. But it isn’t Lara’s fault. A brilliant player doesn’t necessarily make a great captain. Look at Sachin Tendulkar.
Very true, Bob. Besides, with all the other sports that kids in the West Indies play today – like soccer and baseball – cricket is taking a backseat. I bet more kids want to play in the soccer World Cup as the Soca Warriors did than they want to play cricket.
