Jamaica: West Indies are Minnows

Jamaican b C wishes the West Indies well, but calls a spade a spade: “The truth is, the West Indies team is a minnow. You can't win matches when your opening pair of batsman can't give you more than 24 runs. You can't win when only one strike bowler actually takes wickets. You can't win when your entire middle order is almost incapable of half-centuries. You can't win when the fate rests in one man's hands.”
