Carib cricket

In a refreshing surprise, the South Africans were jolted into the realisation that they could well have a fight on their hands in this Caribbean tour. Destined to always be the unglamorous hero, Chanderpaul made his way to what seems another doughty hundred, as is his wont.

Wavell Hinds putting up his hand when the team, and West Indian cricket, so desperately needed it is a really commendable act. To learn that he is the Vice Pres of the WIPA just makes it more of an achievment. One can only imagine what sort of pressures and distractions he has been through recently. With the senior pros looking sure to return by the next Test, I hope this entire mess is cleaned up in the best way possible- on the field.
