Title: Seriously, if the 11 best players happen to come from one island......

Should they represent the WI? Will such a team be considered a WI team? Would you support a WI team made up of all Jamaicans if they were the best players we can produce at the time?  I think that may be part of WI problems. I know this scenario is unlikely, but certainly food 4 thought.

I think they should represent the WI and that they should be considered a WI team. When a regional athlete does well internationally we all feel good, not as good as if a T&T athlete does well, but good never the less. If a WI team is beating everyone again people will be happy to have a winning team and while the composition will always be important, winning will trump those complaints.
