ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates -- Lionel Baker, the newest member of the West Indies Cricket Team, said he had his thinking cap on during his impressive spell against Pakistan in the opening match of the Fortune Cup Series on Wednesday. The 24-year-old – the first player from the island of Montserrat to wear West Indies colours in an official international match – also noted that he will be looking for more success during the second match on Friday.

CEO speaks ahead of WICB's One Day Tournament

ST. JOHN'S, Antigua -- As we prepare to host the 2008 One-Day Regional Tournament in Guyana, we cannot help but hope that the tournament will be the beginning of a new focus on raising the bar in West Indies Cricket.

The results of the One-Dayers in recent years have been mixed; we have had some good performances but we have also witnessed scores and performances that are well below the first class standards that are to be expected from Regional Tournaments.
