Stuart Law Insists Caribbeans Have The Skill To Dominate World Cricket Again In Near Future

New Delhi: The West Indies team has been on a steady decline for some time now once known for its intimidating presence but outgoing coach Stuart Law insists the Caribbeans have the skill level to dominate world cricket again in near future.

West Indies began their two-month long tour of India with 0-2 Test series defeat and followed it up with a 1-3 defeat in the subsequent ODI series. They were expected to fare better in the Twenty20 but were handed a crushing 71-run defeat in the second T20 International to concede an unassailable 0-2 lead.

Law, who will part ways with the West Indies team after the subsequent tour of Bangladesh, said the Caribbeans are presently on a transition phase and with time they will only get better.

“West Indies cricket is not about lack of talent. The skill level is always there. It’s about applying that skill, making the right decisions under pressure in the middle of the game. It’s a tough place to learn there at the middle,” said the 49-year-old Australian, who is set to join English county side Middlesex soon.

“Sooner than later we will get better results, better equipped players. International cricket is a beast and to learn your cricket out there is a tough ask.”

Law said the tough tour of India is a big learning experience for his young side and irrespective of the final outcome they will only take home positives.

“It’s a young team and they are learning on the job. It is tough to learn in this environment against one of the best teams in the world,” he said.
