Has Jamaica cricket come of age?

That Jamaica won its fifth consecutive four-day title, this time without stars like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, is testament to the tenacity of the captain and support staff

That Jamaica won its fifth consecutive four-day title, this time without stars like Chris Gayle and Andre Russell, is testament to the tenacity of the captain and support staff. However, while the success should be toasted, there are still concerns over the standard of the domestic game, writes Hartley Anderson in Jamaica Observer.

In identifying the winning formulae on the field of play, Lambert, who obviously stands apart as the best skipper in the region, is an excellent starting point. As has previously been stated in this space, the burly all-rounder possesses a mature cricketing brain way beyond his years and is a direct throwback to Tucker, who was such an outstanding leader at all levels in the region.
