Windies Cricket..Lovely Windies Cricket!

Cricketwindies is the leading voice for Caribbean and International cricket news, information and opinion. We’re a community of cricket fans who follow all cricket. In other words, a bunch of high-strung, fanatical cricket enthusiasts who have far too much time on their hands.

For many years the West Indies team ruled the cricket world, playing undefeated in a Test series for over 15 years. Recently the West Indies team has suffered several losses but with the emergence of new high-calibre players the future for the West Indies cricket team looks very good!

West Indians are passionate about their cricket, quick to cheer when the team performs well but also quick to criticize a poor performance. Thousands of West Indians always turn out to watch their team play .... and hopefully win!

Cricket is seen as a unifying force in the West Indies, bringing together players (and supporters) from across the region. This gentleman's game has brought considerable exposure to the islands of the Caribbean, with the West Indian cricketers being remembered not only for their incredible talent and skills but also for their deportment and sense of fair play.

Former Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews By Sudipto Ganguly MUMBAI, India (Reuters) – Sri Lanka have never won a Test in India and with Virat Kohli’s men on a run of near-flawless home form the visitors are unlikely to break their duck in a three-match series starting in Kolkata tomorrow.

A few years back I wrote in these pages about the death, or rather enforced euthanasia, of Lewisham cricket, another minor stage in the sport’s retreat from city centres. This was the mournful news that Kent County Cricket club had decided to “merge”, ie disband, the Lewisham district cricket team, handing it over to a neighbouring borough of simil

Roy Fredericks: 15 little known facts to know about the former West Indies opening batsman Standing at just five feet six inches, Fredericks was considered one of the most destructive left-handed batsmen of his time.

He seemed indestructible once but now there’s a fragility about the West Indian whose 100mph pace and relentless swing propelled him into cricket’s pantheon more than half a century ago.
