Hopefully you all here want the dispute to end, even though a full strength WI team may have won, it would of been a better series in terms of cricket quality....

WI A team is not really that good like BD A.
I would love to see those players come back and start ruling the world - that said WIndies need a better infrastructure.

I see your A team is touring England, I can't remember the last time we had an A team tour.

Currently our A team is touring a province of India which is locally known as "Maratha".
They escaped first two games with draws, with a humiliating performance in the second one.

I would cut some slack for the inter-city tour they had to take in such a short period. Hope they come back strong from the next match.

Good to hear that. We do not want any of the top cricket teams disappearing from the scene and hampering world cricket.

If this dispute ends another will rise. Coz WI board is too lazy and corrupts and top players are too greedy.

Are the players greedy for wanting their money? Most of them don't have a fallback position, Chanderpaul quit school when he was 9 years old to pursuit Cricket.

The whole cricketing world is eagerly waiting for them to come back.
Its impossible to think of cricket without West Indies, atleast for our generation.

It is ridiculous to label professional athletes as greedy when they are fighting for a cause united. They may make a ridiculous amount of money at first glance but consider the following:

1. They have a limited time/age in which to earn their living as they don't have the luxury to prepare for a long term career as a fallback option
2. They are entitled to a fair share of the money other people (board, owners etc.) are making off of the name and number on the back of their jerseys.
3. They are not comparable to the army where national pride is involved, they are first and foremost professionals and entertainers. They have themselves and families to think of.
4. There is a difference between refusing to play a meaningless tour vs. refusing to boycott lets say the World cup

Let me add:
Playing without an injury clause. Now this is big. Their entire life depends on this and the board would not consider treating them while getting injured in the nets or in the match?
