Garner says change of captaincy is crucial
Wednesday 27 December 1995
Garner believes that the fast bowler must take over if the West Indies are to pose a challenge in next year's World Cup in India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
"If he [Richardson] does not perform with the bat on the current tour, he should not go to the World Cup," Garner said.
The West Indies slumped to their fifth successive limited-overs defeat on tour in Australia when, with their top order failing again, they lost by four wickets to Queensland on Tuesday. Replying to the West Indies' 50-over score of 206 for 8, Queensland totalled 207 for 6 with 17 balls to spare. Stuart Law, overlooked for Test duty, scored 70 from 84 balls.
