Cricket news - Why are West Indies coaches being ignored at home and abroad?

West Indies won the T20 WC in 2016 under the tutelage of Phil Simmons.

"T20 leagues around the world eg. @IPL @APLT20official @BBL @BPLT20Cricket @MSL_T20 @thePSLt20 Where the West Indian coach? WI ICCT20 World Champs, Top WI T20 player @henrygayle @DJBravo47 @KieronPollard55 @SunilPNarine74 @Russell12A More appropriate coaching rep is necessary, please"

These are the words of current globe-trotting-West-Indies-commentator Daren Ganga last October, as a coach for the United Arab Emirates T20x were announced.

This tournament, unfortunately, not to bowl, and Ganga ' s comment, as is so often the case, cricket with the West Indies - - - not a lot of attention to pick up the game of cricket in the world's media circles at the time.

However, with the recent news that West Indies Cricket (CWI) hired controversial Englishman Richard Pybus as interim head coach, from the Caribbean to candidates, Ganga ' s post took on additional importance. The serious question must now be asked: Why are the West Indies coach, is ignored, both at home and abroad?

Both In the NFL in the United States (in spite of the implementation of the Rooney rule) and in the English Premier League, it's been a great debate about how to fight leagues with a majority of black athletes have a similar representation for coaches.

In T20 cricket, the game, one of the newest and most exciting format, the West Indies players, the dominant force. As a journalist, Tim Wigmore wrote on ESPNCricinfo recently that the Windies "style of the calculated six-hitting is the T20 cricket, the version of Barcelona's Tiki-Taka football or the current NBA Champions Golden State Warriors' propensity to score many three-pointers.

No other team can replicate, but many of the franchises, including Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians and Perth sensations - have tried to follow the format in her team-building, beginning to beat with a big six-Chris Gayle as an opener at the top.

But in contrast to the West Indies, consisting of three figures, give your hitter the ultimate license to go hard in franchise cricket-Kieron Pollard, Dwayne Bravo, Andre Russell, Darren Sammy and Carlos Brathwaite tend to be held back for the last five overs. Very few times you would be involved earlier in an innings, regardless of the game situation.

It can be argued that this is due to the international player quota in the leagues, as well as budget obstacles.

"The building of the teams in the franchise's cricket is a bit different because of the players restrictions on foreign players. In most leagues you can only choose four, and in the Big Bash, for example, there are only two. Even with budget restrictions, and because the West Indians' reputation, they all come at a high price at auction, so it is hard to buy all of them. Also, if there are two or three of them, they need to be supplemented by domestic players, which is prohibited in this way to do not the easy to find", team scout AR Srikkanth, who is working with the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), and Trinbago Knight Rider (TKR) but also employed in the PSL and BPL.

Noticeably, although in the last T10 League in Dubai last November and December, we saw the eventual champions North warriors win the League the provision of a Caribbean style. Led by Daren Sammy, with non-player restrictions to worry about is winning the dominated the team of power-boys of the tournament.

So, T20 franchises a trick, by trying to build the harder your team in this way? And it could not be merit in the Caribbean Trainer, the understand this style the best, more frontline coaching roles?

The Pybus situation is so bad that the CWI Directors, who are, as a rule, to walk in step with dictatorial Board President Dave Cameron. In a letter to CWI that was leaked to the media, Leeward Islands-Director Enoch Lewis noted that Cameron coach initially organized for Pybus to, without the Supervisory Board's approval. He did this by ignoring the list of local options to replace CWI's Director of Cricket, Jimmy Adams, the Windies legend Desmond Haynes, Stuart proposed law.

Almost all of the Pybus' initiatives in his previous work as a CWI director of cricket have been reduced by Jimmy Adams & current CWI chief executive Johnny grave - the other highlights how annoying and disrespectful to the people and the coach of the Caribbean its the time of rental. It prompted the former West Indies captain Sammy you blow up the date in a twitter post, objectively highlighting Pybus' lack of credentials for the job:

All the great triumphs were achieved by the West Indies in the post-1995 era of decline, the local trainers. Australians John Dyson and Bennett king, the former foreign-Windies coach this time and not achieve anything. More recently, the T20 WC in 2016 has been won, under the guidance of Phil Simmons, who is widely recognized for his work with Ireland and Afghanistan. Ottis Gibson, who is the T20 WC-West Indies won in 2012, has gone on to rejuvenate the South African Test team. Both men show what the West Indian coach.

"If West Indies do not use a local Trainer, then you will not get much chance to market yourself. Only a few living abroad especially in the international attention of other teams", Roger Harper coach of the West Indian Islands, to their most important Test series victory over a higher ranked nation in this century - the defeat of Sourav Ganguly of India in year 2002.

In the CPL, Harper, the Guyana Amazon trained Warriors for four seasons. Three times the team runner-up, and once it was, it was a semi-finalist. When he left for the season 2018, Guyana South Africans Johan Botha gave his first head coaching job, rather than the appointment of a local.

This points to a wider problem in the 2018 CPL-season, on one side only West Indian head coach has had with Donovan Miller, the St. Kitts and Nevis leads the patriots.

Miller is a talented young Caribbean-coach, part of Essex County cricket club. He also made waves as the victorious coach of the Global T20 Canada with Vancouver knights.

Other roles are involved in Andy flower the coaching setup for the Rest of the world team in their charity match against the West Indies last year, and the coaching staff in 2016-CPL champions, the Jamaica Tallawahs and Mzansi Super League champions Jozi stars.

Why, then, he is not to get, T20 coaching opportunities, similar to someone like Tom Moody?

This is not to be presumed that foreigners have no impact on West Indies cricket. The work of the famous Australian fitness instructor Dennis Waite has with the legendary West Indies teams of the 70s and 80s is well known.

Grave, an Englishman, has the most professional and competent chief executive in West Indies cricket this Millennium. He has to constantly hire decisions for re-inclusion in the Windies " a senior T20 stars since its 2017, only to see the Directors and selectors, you will find every reason to stop the recall.

With this snub to local trainers, the evidence is overwhelming that the West Indian coaches are getting a raw deal, both at home and abroad.
