Head coach Ottis Gibson charged his players to “man up” after their loss to New Zealand by an innings and 73 runs inside three days in the second Test in New Zealand.
Former New Zealand captain Martin Crowe has followed by telling them to “wake up”.
In an article on the ESPNcricinfo website, Crowe highlighted the part fielding played in the dominance of the outstanding West Indies’ dominance of his time in the 1980s.
“This was not only the finest bowling and batting combo the world has seen,” he wrote. “It was also the finest collection of outcricketers the world has seen collectively on the field.”
He rated the present team’s fielding in the Wellington Test “the worst I have seen in all my time”. (TC)
