In fact I think of the Windies as a bit like Rihanna, trying to avoid some homely-looking guy's 'it's a really good song; we don't need sex to sell this!' duet.
Yeah the Windies have often struck me (in the last 10 years) as thinking they're far too mighty to be playing little old NZ and should be up there with the big boys, even though results suggest the complete opposite.
IMO ICC should mandate that if teams are only separated by 10 points or so on the test rankings then series should be 3 tests minimum.
