West Indian fans left the Trent Bridge ground here an angry lot on Thursday after West Indies suffered a narrow 15-run defeat to Australia in their second 2019 ICC World Cup match.
NOTTINGHAM —West Indies all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite is frustrated over the “dodgy” umpiring during his side's 15-run loss to Australia and is also questioning why his team does not get as many lbw decisions as their opponents.
West Indies overturned four calls by the two umpires in Thursday’s match at Trent Bridge, including two in three balls against opener Chris Gayle in the third over of the innings by Aussie pacer Mitchell Starc.
Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley says he hopes that the door to change has opened with the change of leadership in West Indies cricket.
Ricky Skerritt defeated former president of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB), Dave Cameron 8-4 in Sunday's election.
Dr Rowley issued the following statement on Monday:
"I am pleased to hope that a door to far-reaching progressive change is now open.
This holds out the prospect for the effecting of the much-needed restructuring of the management of the regional game with some sense of purpose and urgency.
