Worrell the best W Indies captain

THE EDITOR: With reference to the best ever West Indies cricket captain, there should be no argument about that. Sir Frank Worrell without doubt was our best ever cricket captain.

And Deryck Murray, the former TT and West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman, I am sure would attest to that because as a 19-year-old just out of QRC he was selected on the WI cricket team that toured England in 1963, led by Worrell.

The quality of his leadership was of the highest order and the players under him gave their all, so the team could be moulded into a cohesive unit for future captains like Garfield Sobers, Rohan Kanhai, Clive Lloyd and Vivian Richards. Today, however, our cricket is in dire straits due to a lack of proper leadership, and the passion and discipline of the present crop of players are totally lacking.
