Long overdue.The selectors should take the blinkers off. Bring on some young talent,they could not do any worse and will have time to be groomed and improve. Get politics out of the selection and for Pete's sake do not leave any former Windies to organize cricket in Canada. The recent World Cup debacle is sufficient evidence to prove my point. The Windies would benefit to organise a rum festival.Stick to what you are good at.

I thought Anderson did a good job considering his age. He was pretty quick and accurate. He just was unlucky taking wickets.

It is unfair to blame the player. Blame the selectors if you must assign blame.

All Anderson Cummins did at the World Cup was rob a young budding Canadian of a chance at some early experience.

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
