    West Indies cricket is a mystery, neither board nor players have an answer

    They should let Chris Gayle be the umpire for this one. I hear one of his reps picked up a chair and almost fired it at a WICBC official yesterday. Umpiring might be his next profession.

    they should have removed Malcom altogether or put him as 4th umpire and i hope he goes back to regional matches and not international matched.

    Good Luck Wilson.

      Well said M, he should be removed from International matches altogether. Very undecisive and he lacks confidence. He needs to mature into the international area.
