Legendary cricketer Viv Richards believes that people who don't matter are part of West Indies cricket, affecting the game's growth in the region.

“There are too many little issues that affect the (West Indies) team in terms of performance as a united unit, because of some of the problems they (would have) with administrators,” Richards told PTI in an interaction here.

“There has been too much involvement of folks (people) who do not quite matter. If you can find a common bond, where administrators stop thinking that they are the sole representatives of West Indies cricket, that's rubbish, we should eliminate that factor.”

The West Indies, who recently lost the T20 series against Pakistan, are far from the force they used to be.
A lot of senior players have issues with the West Indies Cricket Board.

Right after winning the World T20 in India last year, the skipper of that side, Darren Sammy, had lambasted the board officials.
