Despite the fact that this year, the West Indies regional four-day tournament has been suffer from being cut short, remains 2 rounds to be held due to the widespread of COVID-19 , Barbados, who were ranked top 1 after winning five out of the total seven games, have recently been announced to be the 2019/20 winners. It was their first time to gain the most prestigious tile of four-day tournament in six seasons. Guyana was the one and only team to win 5 previous titles. Henderson Broomes who is the chairman of selectors, expressed his opinion: “But we have a saying here in Barbados. We don’t rate our success by regional victory. We rate our success on how our international players go on the international stage.”
This statement seems to be total understandable to most cricket fans as when we take into consideration the fact that Barbados have been an indispensable part recently in numerous West Indies regional competitions, and they successfully made the victory come true on 23 succesive occasions. So which is the 2nd most successful team? It is the Jamaica which won 12 victories during the same period. This island really knows how to produce the best cricket players of all time who made the most impressive performances during different plays. There are some impressive worth mentioning are Sir Everton Weekes, Sir Clyde Walcott and Sir Frank Worrell, to Wes Hall and Sir Garry Sobers to Gordon Greenidge, Desmond Haynes, Malcolm Marshall and Joel Garner. An all-time Barbados XI would suffer from failure.
However, the traditional strength of Bajan cricket soon disappeared just after a short period. They won the one and only regional title in thirteen years after becoming the winner as nowadays.
