For over a century, the WEST INDIES CRICKET TEAM has united the islands of the Caribbean with Barbados, Trinidad, Jamaica and Guyana being regional power houses. However in recent years, these power houses have felt a bit unsettled and expressed their desire to split from West Indies Cricket and represent themselves individually.

In 2009 Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board (TTCB) chief executive Forbes Persuade said leading figures in the country's cricket body are considering breaking away from the West Indies citing the lack of organization that exist in the camp. This notion has been revisited by some in Jamaica because of the long standoff between West Indies captain Chris Gayle and the West Indies Cricket Board.

On chat-boards across the region the notion expressed is that it's only a matter of time before the team collapses and each island starts representing them-selves, showing national pride as opposed to the regional pride that the West Indies has provided.
Dwayne Bravo of Trinidad & Tobago expressed his disgust at the way in which the WICB has been operating over the past few years citing that "local club was better organized than the regional body"...

With that said our question: SHOULD WEST INDIES CRICKET TEAM SEGREGATE AND EACH COUNTRY REPRESENT THEMSELVES LIKENED TO WHAT'S DONE IN SOCCER/FOOTBALL; OR SHOULD MORE EFFORT BE EXERTED TO TRY AND FIND AN AMICABLE SOLUTION TO RETAIN OVER A CENTURY'S WORTH OF TRADITION?
