The future of West Indies cricket

After a dismal world cup which resulted in the resignation of one the world's cricketing greats Brian Lara the run of bad form is continuing with the English tour. There seems to be a lack of responsibility from the senior players to put their hands up and take leadership. What needs to be done with West Indian cricket in order to reclaim those days of glory where they were one of the most feared teams in the world?

Seeing as this is about the West Indies, I'll move it to the West Indies section.

I am amazed at the recent downfall of the team. I grew up in the 80's when they were a dominant force. They just didn't lose and had a team of players that were by far the best. Joel Garner, Larry Gomes, Gordon Greenidge, Desmond Haynes, Michael Holding, Malcolm Marshall, Viv Richards, Curtly Ambrose, Jeff Dujon, Carl Hooper, Richie Richardson, Courtney Walsh, Clive Lloyd.
It's almost like the team has a "me" mentality and no-one will step up and take control of what's going on. All teams have their ups and downs and unfortunately it's the West indies at the moment.
