Windies team too lazy and relaxed in training: Dyson

Posted By: Staff

Sydney, Dec 1(ANI): Former West Indies coach John Dyson has revealed that the team has created a culture of laziness while training for tournaments.

The comment follows team manager Joel Garner's remarks following the massive defeat against Australia at the Gabba, where he blamed the result on insufficient preparation.

"There are some cricketers in the group, who unfortunately don't like taking direction from people at all. They feel they are above that," The Sydney Morning Herald quoted Dyson, as saying.

"They are unqualified to make that call, but they still make that call. They are very relaxed in their approach to training. There are times their body language conveys that they are just not interested," he added.

Dyson further said it is a challenge to blend together guys from different backgrounds, who have different slants on aspects of cricket.

"It's difficult getting the players together with the one single-minded goal. This is indicative of the fact that they come from different nations. It has been suggested that they break up the West Indies and have Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, Guyana, compete as individual teams," he added.

Dyson was in charge of the team for two years before the player strike caused upheaval. (ANI)
