Jamaica and West Indies allrounder Marlon Samuels, has been relieved of bowling duties pending an ICC assessment of his current bowling actions, that was reported in the final Test on the tour to Sri Lanka.

This assessment would provide eligibility for him to continue to bowl in international cricket. The cut date was on November 1, 2015, having been reported on October 19, 2015.

The suspension of the head coach, the naming of a squad with new young faces, the pleas of past cricketing greats, the recurrent suspicion of one of our bowlers, crashing to an two nil Test series defeat are some of the latest episodes in the drama called "West Indies cricket" within the last month.

Above all, is the latter, the Test series loss to Sri Lanka, which is of greatest cause for concern.

There is new Caribbean held view that there is slow passing away of Test cricket in the West Indies.

South Africa bundled out Sri Lanka for a paltry 113 in the first quarter final game of the ICC Cricket World Cup before easing to the target in a mere 18 overs to secure passage to the semifinals for the first time since 1999.

The Proteas who have never won a knockout game in World Cup history before this, completed an impressive to send a warning to their next opponents.

Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first which proved to be the wrong decision as the combination of Dale Steyn and Kyle Abbott bowl removed Sri Lanka's openers as the score read 2-4.
