CRICKET: Richards says WI must build on World Cup experience

Former West Indies player Sir Vivian Richards says the Caribbean men should use the 2015 Cricket World Cup experience to improve their game in the near future.

Richards, who was part of the West Indies World Cup winning teams in 1975 and 1979, says they should be aiming to go further in the 2019 edition of the tournament by using the results as a wake-up call.

The Antiguan also believes Jason Holder is a good leader for the team and doesn’t see any reason to give the captaincy to another player.

According to Richards, Holding is progressing on the right path.

The 63-year-old Richards also wished Phil Simmons all the best as head coach of the Windies and said he hopes he gets the backing of the players, board and selectors.
