Carl Hooper Laments Windies Current Status In World Cricket

West Indies former captain and current assistant coach is unhappy with the level to which the Windies’ cricket has fallen.

Hooper said, “Never did I thought I’d live to see the day where West Indies is trying to qualify for major tournaments.”

He said from back in Australia, he observed West Indies struggling to get through in T20s, and “here we are in Zimbabwe playing against the likes – no disrespect to the other teams, but we are playing against the likes of USA, and Nepal and Scotland.”

He noted that Afghanistan and Bangladesh have gone ahead of the West Indies.

Moreover, the former batting stylist said the current situation is distressing and could even worsen if no attempt is made to do the right thing.

He said his years of experience as a coach and player puts him in pole position to share his knowledge with players.

In the Windies’ opening group game against the USA on Sunday, half-centuries from Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Roston Chase, and Jason Holder put West Indies over the line for a win in the ICC World Cup qualifier at the Takashinga Sports Club in Harare.

West Indies made 297 all out in 49.3 overs which was good enough for a 39-run win against the USA.
