Barbados Prime Minister Concerned Over West Indies Cricket Decline


St. Lucia (St. Lucia Times) – Asserting that cricket is more than bat and ball, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley expressed concern over the decline of West Indies cricket while delivering the 22nd Frank Worrell Memorial lecture on Tuesday night.

And she called for the game’s governance overhaul.

“We have reached a point where the absolute imperative must be to change the governance of our game,” Mottley asserted.

She described the West Indies’ recent failure to qualify for the ICC ODI World Cup as the straw that broke the camel’s back.

“We are playing the fool, and it is not a little bit of foolery. It is a lot, and I am not casting blame on any single person but I am reaching out to a civilization and to a people,” she stated.

“This is not about recriminations. I keep telling people we don’t have eyes in the back of our head. We have eyes to go forward,” the Barbados Prime Minister said.
