Former West Indies pacer Winston Davis believes strongly that West Indies have the talent to return to the pinnacle of international cricket, but adjustments in the cricketers’ mind set and the relationship between players and administrators are required for that to happen.

Even over the phone, Trinidadian Stephen Hart’s good mood after returning to training is infectious.

The HFX Wanderers FC coach spoke to CanPL.ca reporter Charlie O’Connor-Clarke after his team returned to training on Monday, and it’s clear that things are, slowly, looking up in Nova Scotia.

Kyle Greaux and Jereem “The Dream” Richards are Trinidad and Tobago teammates. The 200-metre sprinters are also rivals.

At the 2017 National Championships, Richards captured the men’s half-lap title for the first time, getting the better of Greaux in a keenly contested final. Greaux turned the tables at the 2018 Championships, grabbing the crown from Richards a couple months after “The Dream’s” golden run at the Commonwealth Games.

Chris Dehring, former chief marketing executive with the West Indies Cricket Board, sees a bleak future for Cricket West Indies (CWI) if the revenue spread in world cricket does not change.

Former West Indies captain Darren Sammy has urged the International Cricket Council (ICC) and its member cricket boards to speak out against social injustice and racism, amid public outrage in the USA and across the globe over the death of a black man in police custody.

THERE will be no compromise between William Wallace and his sidelined executives of the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association (TTFA) and the FIFA-imposed normalisation committee.
