Former West Indies fast bowler Kenny Benjamin says cricket in the Caribbean is suffering from players’ lack of loyalty and commitment, and intervention is required to save the sport.

The Antiguan called for coaches, mentors, teachers, and parents to teach these youngers, even before they get into national youth teams about commitment and loyalty.

Benjamin’s comments also came against the background of controversial public outbursts by West Indies batting star Chris Gayle who unleashed a verbal attack on his former Windies teammate Ramnaresh Sarwan after being released from the Caribbean Premier League franchise team Jamaica Tallawahs.
