Confusing is the state of affairs in the Caribbean. Perhaps, it has always been like that. Can players from small island nations ever combine and make a good squad of 15 at the world stage? Yes, they did. But, that was back in the 70's and 80s. Unfortuately it does not happen like that anymore there. Imagine, at a time when a good-for-nothing West Indies team is crashing to one defeat after another, a certain Chris Gayle is showing is great form millions of miles away in the lucrative Indian Premier League (IPL). He says his board never contacted him before finalizing the squad for the series vs Pakistan. The board says that they tried to reach him but were never able to. Yes, if you believe all those involved, such things do happen in this age and times of Blackberry devices! Mr Gayle is one of the most hyperactive cricketers off the field as well, that is when it comes to Twitter. There is certainly something really bad going in Caribbean cricket be it with the administrators or the players. Alas, fans of once mighty cricket team are the ones who are most dejected...
