Former West Indies fast bowler Sir Andy Roberts disagrees with the popular opinion that there was an improved level of play during the just ended West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) Regional Super50, in comparison to previous tournaments.
On the contrary, he believes that in some instances, the level of play had even declined.
“Our players do not work hard enough at harnessing their talent, and until they do they will never improve. All of us have faults and we all have strong points and weak points, and your strong points you would continue to have because it comes natural to you, but your weak points are the ones you have to try and eliminate,” he said.
Sir Andy does not give the regional squad a fighting chance in their upcoming home series against England.
“I don’t expect anything new until I can see some improvement in the quality of play on the international level. I am not going to judge based on the performances in our domestic cricket because the standard of our domestic cricket is not of the highest,” he said.
West Indies will take on England in two One Day Internationals (ODI) in Antigua. The first is scheduled to be played tomorrow (Friday) and the second on Sunday.
The third and final match will be played in Barbados on March 9.
