Probably a good thing too, West Indies A team is more like a West Indies Z team most of the time.
Not true, our A team hasn't lost a series for ages. They are up there with most other teams a teams, especially the bowling attack (although they had a bad game just recently).
Having said that, a replacement team simply wouldn't have been acceptable and I'm glad we don't have to witness that.
To summarise my position on the whole thing, I understand why the players are so upset, they were treated appallingly and guys who have shown an inclination to play cricket in most circumstances like Sammy, Ramdin and Roach are refusing to play as well.
The WICB are an absolute joke and the fact their emergency delegation was going to arrive 10 days after the 1st ODI shows how lazy, arrogant and incompetent they are. In this day and age communication is easy as well, it seems they have never heard of Skype!
My problem with the players actions is that they have probably driven West Indies cricket off the edge of a cliff by walking out of a tour hosted by the BCCI of all people. In doing that they have shown no regard for cricket fans, especially those in the Caribbean. They have effectively bitten the hand that feeds them and I really hope they were aware of all the ramifications of their decision.
I dread the next few weeks, all sorts of faecal matter is going to hit the fan.
