Luke 13; 7-9. Parable of the fig tree. “Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard. Behold, three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down.
Why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him. Lord, let it alone this year also, that I shall dig about it and dune it and if it bear fruit well: And if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”
“I support WICB President Dave Cameron for not allowing the Governments of the Caribbean to dictate to the Board what to do. I have said before that politicians are elected to manage the affairs of countries; keep them out of West Indies cricket.” Reverend Errington Massiah – Weekend Nation Friday Nov27, 2015.
Preacher, I can quote the scriptures also; 1st Kings 21:21. “Behold I will bring evil upon thee and I will take away thy prosperity, and will cut off from Ahab him that pisseth against the wall and him that is shut and left in Israel.”
Acts 9:5. “And he said who art thou Lord? And the Lord said. I am Jesus whom thou persecutest; it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.”
How can the preacher admit that ‘the team is no good’. They have lost more tests than any other team since 1995 when they lost the world championship to Australia. Caribbean Governments are elected by millions of people. The WICB is elected by 14 members.
Yet, despite Caribbean/UWI 2002 cricket conference held at the Cave Hill campus June 2-4 with over 100 delegates drawn from as far as the US Virgin Islands; the Patterson, Wilkins, and now Barriteau reports , the WICB refuses to implement anything. Furthermore, of the ten test playing grounds , CARICOM governments have built 8 and can’t have a say? Well let the WICB play on their grounds.
