West Indies Qualify for the Cricket World Cup 2019

Well that wasn't the most stress free and relaxing journey to witness over these last few weeks (although it was exciting to be able to watch it on SkySports). I can't image what it was like to experience but I do know the outcome was triumphant, dramatic and very much deserved for this young passionate team. I've had the privilege of meeting many of the staff and players from the current squad and especially some great times spent with the brilliant (and very tall) Captain, Jason Holder who showed himself to be a Great Leader. As you'll be aware from my last post Steven Sylvester has been out supporting the West Indies over in Zimbabwe. Steven made special mention of Jason Holder and Head Coach - Stuart Law. He was impressed by the way they embraced the enormity of the occasion. He enjoyed seeing how they combined their efforts to work effectively, blending both youth and experience in the side. It was great to observe the teams resilience with senior players supporting the younger players both on and off the field. Their transformational leadership helped the group collectively deal with the extreme pressure of qualifying for a World Cup. What would a Cricket World Cup have been without the West Indies anyhow, so the outcome was meant to be. I will tell you something though, after moaning about the shocking cold wet weather here in the UK and wishing for sunshine to arrive, I've never been so eternally grateful to see some 'rain' yesterday ! In conclusion, I'd like to wish Cricket West Indies (CWI), the President and the Board, the CEO and his staff, the Head coach, players and all the support staff and fans all the very best for the Cricket World Cup 2019 in England.
