Very harsh on Lara.
Very harsh on Lara.
Yeah, started to read it before. Only just woke up then.
Very compelling article...
Sarwan was dropped for one match due to his poor form over the past few months. Even he himself admitted that sitting out for one test match did him a lot of good. Some of the criticism is spot on, tbh. But a bit too harsh for the most part.

Harsh, very harsh.

Lara reminds me of David Gower - great player, not a great captain. The Windies turned to him so often because no one else got succsess out of the team. On another topic, I read in the Sunday Telegraph that he might be dropped from the Test team too and won't tour England this summer and that Sarwan will be captain in all formats. Does anyone know if this is true and do they think long term the Windies mught be better off making a clean break from the Lara era - even if intially they struggle in the short term without his Test runs.

Don't think he was a paticulary great captain (heck is there anyone that does?) but the West Indies were in decline before he came to power anyway, to blame him for destroying the character of team from an outsiders perspective is just plain wrong IMO.
It's easy to make anyone look like anything in writing, and while i don't see Lara as being a saviour of West Indian cricket, i don't think a lot of the problems the team went through can be attributed to him.
Writing articles like that are far too easy and don't address the fashion in any sort of objective manner, anyone can throw a few choice quotes together and pin the blame on the captain, but in reality i don't think there's much Lara changed with West Indian cricket, for better or for worse.
