West Indies cricket

'Ramdin's actions disgraceful and childish'

Carlyle Laurie

West Indies wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin’s decision to brandish a note directed at Vivian Richards, after he reached his century, has been criticised from a number of quarters. An editorial in the Trinidad and Tobago Guardian says Ramdin’s actions were disgraceful and childish.

His disgraceful and disrespectful display on Sunday deserved a severe penalty as well as a strong reprimand. It was unsportsmanlike behaviour which tainted a rare moment of glory for the team. If he cannot accept constructive criticism from one of the greatest cricketers ever to come out of the West Indies, how can he be expected to learn and develop as a sportsman?
