    A couple of day night tests with Starc bowling at them under lights would help.

    HI, imagine if they came out a few months ago and were facing Harris, Johnson and Starc!!! Keep in mind once help starts arriving or they get their board in order it will still take 15 years for the current mess to turn itself around.

    Agreed, giving them the prestigious festive tests was more than generous.

    Yeah I'm at a loss to see why it is CA's responsibility to fix this.......the ICC's or "big 3" possibly but you can't dump it solely on Australia.

    Agreed, but I'll sign most anything that brings attention to the sorry state of Windies cricket. Petition should really go to CARICOM! Tell em to set up a rival board to WICB and get it approved by the ICC. (but I did sign the petition)

    I'm at a loss as to why it's anything to do with England or India either.

    Why you may ask?

    In the late Seventies there was a movement that changed the game forever. It's called World Series Cricket. That movement bought many innovations to the game that now we take for granted. The West Indies team was a reason that series was a success.

    The West Indies just about toured every second year in Australia from around 75/76 to the mid nineties.

    They played to packed crowds and Cricket Australia made a fortune off ticket sales and the local broadcaster Channel Nine made a fortune of ad revenue when they played.


    So now that The West Indies are in a major slump i think Cricket Australia can help out a bit.

    So i started this petition.

    Zorax if you haven't seen the documentary Fire in Babylon. Please rectify the situation. Not only will you be entertained you will understand why so many Australians are passionate about the West Indies side.

    This feels like colonialism at it's worst. Rich white country has to go fix the poor brown people. It's all for their own good, right?
