Some say that winning is infectious. If this is indeed the case then Lara and his team may grow in confidence enough to cajole them into recognising their true potential; and there is immense potential amongst the current players available for selection.
Brian Lara has been offered yet another opportunity to write his name in the annals of our cricketing history amongst the list of outstanding leaders.
He is already in the annals by virtue of his many achievements with the bat and the huge number of catches he has taken in the game. He can be there in yet another capacity.
The challenge has been laid before him.
The fullness of time will allow us to assess this man who, since joining the team, has been at the centre of controversy.
In his hands is the future of West Indies cricket yet again.
