Bruce Golding to step down as Prime Minister

In a somewhat surprising move, Jamaican Prime Minister Bruce Golding has decided to step down as JLP (Jamaica Labour Party) leader and Prime Minister.  No official date was set.  Mr Golding said he would step aside when a new party leader of the JLP has been elected.

The decision brings a lot of speculation and conspiracy theories from members of the general public.  After a meeting the JLP execs decided to reject Mr. Golding’s decision, but all indications were that Mr Golding’s decision is final and possibly irrevocable.

We’ll have more in the weeks to come.

West Indies draws T20 Intl series with England
September 25, 2011

West Indies, missing many of their best T20 players to the Champions League (T&T team, Dwayne Bravo and Pollard playing for other teams) and with Gayle still not on the team, dismissed England for a measly 88, replying to their total of 113-5.

After losing the first match by 10 wickets, 113 seemed an easy knock for the impressive English team.  However, it was not to be.  Bowlers Mathurin and Santokie, making their West Indian debut, started off with early wickets.  Sammy was conservative and, getting desperate, 4 of the last 5 English players were run out.  Man of the match was left-arm spinner from St. Lucia, Mathurin, was the player of the match with 3-9 from his 4 overs.

Series ends in a 1-1 draw.   One positive for cricket fans is that Santokie and Mathurin (especially Santokie) have finally been given the chance that is long overdue in the shorter forms (T20I and ODI) of the game.
