The dismissal of Phil Simmons as West Indies Cricket Coach is among the hot topics drawing debate in the local and regional media.
Among those weighing in is Cricket Commentator Joseph Reds Pireirra who believes that it was only a matter of time before the sacking and that the development did not catch many by surprise.
The relationship between Simmons at the WICB had been rocky since his raw comments on the selection process. Suggestions are that Simmons sacking was as a result of his poor test win history, but Pireirra is not sold on that premise.
Pireirra has also shared his views on the “likability comment” made by the President of the WICB Dave Cameron.
He believes Simmons should have familiarized himself with the policy of the WICB before taking on the coaching job.
Simmons dismissal came with immediate effect on Saturday
