An editorial in the Jamaica Gleaner says that the clash between lucrative professional leagues and representing West Indies has long dogged the region's players, but with the mushrooming of T20 leagues, Test cricket looks likely to be the loser.
Mr Samuels has said with great feeling that he loves Test cricket and wants to leave his mark in the classic, conventional five-day form of the game. But how many Test matches will he be able to play if the current rate of growth in the Twenty20 leagues continues?
