    All things are possible.

    However having picked young players the WICB management will spin this decision as “for the good” of the future.

    The fact is 5 of the best Windies players have become T20 specialists and are quite rightly building their retirement fund.

    Dowrich out for 4. Windies 20 for 3


  3. Hants June 14, 2015 at 12:21 PM #

    46 for 5.


  4. Hants June 14, 2015 at 12:33 PM #

    No Hope. pun intended. 56 for 6


  5. Hants June 14, 2015 at 12:47 PM #

    Holder gone for 1. 63 for 7


    What now. Mass resignations by the Board, coach and selectors would be the honorable thing .

    The selectors have by their selections thrown their lot with the youth. If they are serious they will have to give them time to develop. It will be a challenge if their is no quality experience in the team.

    Sad, Pathetic. West Indies humiliated again.

    “Australia completed a 277-run demolition of West Indies inside four days at Sabina Park to win the Frank Worrell Trophy 2-0. West Indies began the day with eight wickets in hand, but their resistance was feeble. The contest was all but over after they lost 5 for 56 in the first session, and they crumbled for 114 shortly after lunch”

    A FERRARI Formula 1 car is in Barbados.


  9. David June 20, 2015 at 12:04 PM #

    Yes Hants, an awesome sight.

    CPL kicks off at 18:00 hrs today.


  10. Hants June 21, 2015 at 11:09 AM #

    @ David,

    A very mature Lewis second today.

    A couple years ago there may have been a crash at turn 1 lol.


  11. David June 21, 2015 at 11:58 AM #


    Yes, he appreciates the benefit of cutting his losses.

    Jamaican / German Dustin Brown playing Nadal at Wimbledon tomorrow.

    FIFA has kicked Barbados out of the its 2018 World Cup Qualifiers . The BFA was also saddled with a hefty fine of $BDS 12,947.97.
    Will the person or persons holding the Jack Warner delivered envelope(s), please step forward and bale out the BFA.

    The ICC has taken the drastic measure of kicking the United States Cricket team out of its tournaments, because of matters pertaining to management and sponsorships. If the ICC has evidence of any wrong doings by the USA CC,and its backers It should pass its dossier over to the FBI. Let the FBI start cleaning up its own back door.

    I just watched Jamaican / German Dustin Brown beat Nadal at Wimbledon.

    Awesome power tennis.


  15. Hants July 4, 2015 at 11:18 AM #

    Lewis on pole. Race should be exciting.


  16. Hants July 4, 2015 at 8:09 PM #

    We have 100% Bajan Levi Cadogan and 50% Bajan/Trinidadian born Canadian Andre Degrasse.

    Hope they both in the finals in the 100 metres at the commonwealth games.


  17. Hants July 5, 2015 at 9:44 AM #


    Lewis wins exciting race today.

    Had to fight but he and the team made the perfect call when the rain came.


  18. David July 5, 2015 at 9:51 AM #

    Yes Hants but the move by the Williams cars was brilliant.

    LH experienced a bit of luck switching to Intermediate when he did.


  19. Hants July 5, 2015 at 6:03 PM #

    Patrick Husbands just rode the second place horse in the Queen’s Plate.

    Well timed ride but got beaten by a horse with a better finishing kick.


  20. Hants July 9, 2015 at 12:44 PM #

    Serena wins again. Awesome display of power.


  21. de Ingrunt Word July 11, 2015 at 12:19 PM #

    Congrats to Serena. Onwards to the US open and become a history maker after Ms Steffi Graf-Agassi.

    When England left the Caribbean I thought they were a team of quite talented guys who would absolutely take a few games off the Aussies. Well one won.

    I expect them to win the if they maintain the fitness of key players. Their side has all the all-round and other weapons that a top team needs and on home grounds they should continue to be formidable.


  22. David July 16, 2015 at 10:06 PM #

    Earth to Hants!

    Buffy Chamberlain's photo.

    Maybe I misunderstood. .. Did someone say that 👑 SERENA WILLIAMS👑 was built like a man?? I’ll wait…


  23. David July 17, 2015 at 5:50 AM #

    This girl Candace Hill isn’t easy. She is the real deal!!! Congrats to Tristan Evelyn for qualifying for the finals.

  31. Hants July 22, 2015 at 3:11 PM #

  34. Hants July 24, 2015 at 3:06 PM #

    Shane Brathwaite gets the Bronze. runs a personal best. Swift was 4th and also ran a personal best.

  35. David July 24, 2015 at 6:51 PM #

    Yes Hants, and there is a possibility of a couple more in the long jump and 4×1 relay.


  36. Hants July 25, 2015 at 8:11 PM #

    Bajan DNA ( De Grasse ) helps Canada win gold in the 4 x 100 relay.


  37. David July 25, 2015 at 8:14 PM #


    The Bajan team cracked under pressure. We have get better for worlds.


  38. Hants July 25, 2015 at 8:38 PM #

    Canada may be disqualified. Americans claiming a lane infraction by one of the Canadian sprinters.

    Stay tuned.


  39. Hants July 26, 2015 at 9:53 AM #


    F1 demolition derby today. Very entertaining. Nico very unlucky as was Lewis.

    Lots of great wheel to wheel racing.


  40. David July 26, 2015 at 9:57 AM #

  41. Hants July 26, 2015 at 11:23 AM #
