It is one of the supreme ironies of contemporary cricket that the once invincible Calypso cricketers just about manage to survive today in the nether regions of the game, thanks to the presence of minnows like Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. To many of us brought up on the fabled escapades of some of the most talented cricketers in the world who happened to inhabit the Caribbean islands in the 20th century, the decline of West Indies has been a tragedy of epic proportions.

Twenty years ago, in 1994, I had a golden summer. I scored 375 against England in Antigua, a Test record that stood for nine years, and two months later I posted 501 against Durham, which remains today the world record in first-class cricket, as my team Warwickshire achieved an unprecedented domestic treble. I was in my mid-twenties, and of course I was very happy, but I was also very aware that in another part of the world, a great tragedy was unfolding.

Imrul Kayes is the latest inclusion to the Bangladesh cricket team’s Caribbean misery as the left-handed batsman is suffering from skin disease and has been ruled out from the visitors second Test against West Indies starting from September 13 in St Lucia.

Earlier, during the second day of the first Test match when the Tigers were fielding Imrul had to get off the field with skin rashes, but however later returned to bat in both the innings.

An opener by nature, he has been batting at No. 3 for the Tigers for quite some time now, but his Caribbean tour so far has only produced false hopes.

His 25 in the second innings of the first Test was the first double digit score he reached after making nine in the first innings and one, one and nine in the ODI series.

“His (Imrul) physical condition is not well as he is suffering from skin disease and at the moment we are also thinking whether it will be right to fly him back to Bangladesh alone which seems to be difficult at the moment,” said Sabbir Khan manager of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB) cricket operations yesterday.
