Rally Round The Windies

Windies cricket fans have not had the joy of seeing their team win consistently over the past twenty years.

Consequently, harping back to the good old days has now become a chorus among cricket fans.

The fact is fans today yearn for stars but are instead burdened with cash cows.

Additionally, at present, players of instruments and writers of songs have not had cause to sing or write about the current crop of players.

This is regrettable as it is artists who are charged with the responsibility of recording history in songs so that it can be passed on from one generation to the next.

Currently, one sees Windies cricket being described as dung heap, calls for the dismantling of the West Indies cricket Board, and a go it alone mantra.

That said, one cannot afford to throw in the towel, and as noted in the Bible a living dog is better than a dead lion.

So, let’s keep hope alive by reflecting on the following:
