Perhaps the most recent disgrace in West Indies cricket has to do with the hosting of the CWC2007. The ‘Wizard of the CWC2007’, Chris Dehring, appears to have fallen off the face of West Indies cricket.

There are many concerns about the outcomes from the CWC2007. We are not aware of the tremendous benefits that were supposed to accrue to the region and to the respective Boards.
