it's unfair to say "Kieron Pollard lacks desire to succeed at international level"..he got only one ball to play

I am surprised that Ian Bishop would say West Indies lost the plot after the political selection of Devon Smith to come to the world cup and the recall of Ramnaresh Sarwan who failed miserably with the bat, Shivnarine Chanderpaul who in my opinion is over the hill and the very inconsistent Christopher Gayle. I believe the logic for not carrying Ramdhin was his inconsistency, but we are carrying Gayle. The team never stood a chance against RSA. As for the comment on Keiron Pollard, bad captaincy by Sammy to send him in so late was the cause of his failure, he seems to be doing fine in the regional and IPL tournaments, so from an independent view, there must be something wrong about the way West Indies is being managed. Overall, the bowling attack is weak and Roach, Benn and Sammy need to learn to bat. 5 overs to go and they can't chip in 20 runs. That is unacceptable in today's game. If Bishop wants to look at the cause of our losses, I would suggest four letters. WICB

I don't think Ravi Rampaul is a good option. He was mediocre in most matches i saw him play.
