And i'm sure your team will enjoy sitting on the sidelines while we play India, Sa and Eng over the next nine months too .
One day world cup winners- Champions trophy winners- T20 world cup winners- 29 test series without defeat record- Highest run chase in test history record and some think we're minnows? :P
Better make sure you take that series against Bangladesh then. It'll be a long year otherwise.
This job will sink or swim Micky Arthur IMO. We'd have beaten the brakes off them with him as coach, at least 4-0, his Aus team was a total debacle. That said his S.A team where good, so will see who should take most blame for the issues. Normally I'd blame the coach mostly but Shane Watson is Shane Watson so who knows.

It has been a fantastic week for West Indies cricket IMHO (ignoring the farcical ending to the CPL). As WW said, we've finally gotten rid of the worst selectors in our history and replaced them with people who understand our cricket and watch all the domestic cricket week in and out. It has been a terribly frustrating time under Clyde Butthead and co so here's hoping that from now on if we lose, which we probably will for a while, we'll at least lose with our best players who can learn and improve as a result of the experience.
As for Otis, as I said a few times in the NZ tour thread, it was time for him to go. A home loss to NZ in our own conditions, strange selection decisions in series deciding matches and awful man management skills (falling out with every senior player at some point in his tenure). It is time for fresh ideas to help implement Pybus's vision. I've always quite liked Micky Arthur so wouldn't mind his appointment at all if that is indeed what they're planning.
I've always thought Gibson was a good chap; certainly did well as our bowling coach. Could see him getting a county coaching gig.
Arthur tho; not convinced. Think the bloke's a bit of a cock, tbh. Can't see him and Gayle getting on at all. From the outside looking in, Arthur comes across as a JFDI who rules by dictat.
