Former Windies pacer calls for implementation of indoor facilities

Despite refusing to give a public opinion on who should be the next man at the helm of Cricket West Indies, former West Indies fast bowler Winston Benjamin is urging the next administration to implement indoor facilities at all the major venues across the region.

Benjamin who is now the coach of the Leeward Islands Hurricanes, was speaking on Hitz 92 FM's Sports Grill on Wednesday and admitted that there should be more focus at the grassroots level but the facilities would aid in player development.

Benjamin who played 21 tests and 85 ODI's for the Caribbean side, said there should be less insularity in the selection of the regional team and pointed to the case of Hurricanes all-rounder Rahkeem Cornwall who has been one of the region's top players for the last couple of years but has so far failed to get a senior team call-up. Benjamin said the concerns about Cornwall’s fitness are unfair.
