Highlights: Ian Bishop wants Cricket West Indies to harness local talent

Commencing their ICC World Test Championship 2019 campaign with a lot of expectations, West Indies produced a dreadful result as they were humiliated by India in both the games of the two-match Test series. To highlight their humbling, it is important to note that West Indian batters averaged only 14.95 in the series.

All this hasn’t gone down well with many former West Indian cricketers and Ian Bishop, who represented the region between 1989 and 1997, is no exception. 

However, he disagreed with skipper Jason Holder’s remarks on West Indies not being blessed with a plethora of options as he reiterated that the country has an abundance of talent which is waiting to get polished.

The cricketer turned commentator highlighted the names of few talented cricketers as he urged Cricket West Indies to appoint best-qualified coaches at Under-15 and Under-19 level to ameliorate the skills of their players at a young stage. Bishop also backed the national team to come back strongly in their future assignments as it is only the start of the ICC World Test Championship.
