The outstanding former West Indies captain said while there was an abundance of talent in the region, he was concerned by the lack of application and thought which often typified West Indies cricket.
“We need to be more consistent in our play. We have some good bowlers around the place but our batting is the thing that has not been up to par,” the 69-year-old Guyanese said.
“But we have some good cricketers here and it is just a matter of getting people who want to bat for long periods. As I’ve said before, I want to see players bat ugly. There’s not every day you’re going to be able to drive it around, you’re going to have to battle your way out of situations.”
