Chairman of the West Indies Selection Committee, Clive Lloyd wants to see a return to more traditional tours in which visiting teams compete in first class matches against local teams.
In South Africa with the West Indies Team, Lloyd recalls tours that allowed visiting teams to explore the country for its Cricket conditions and culture and had time for contemplation between matches and for Cricketers to go through cycles into and out of form.
Despite being in South Africa for 15 days before the start of the Test series, only one practice against a South African Invitation X1 was organized for the West Indies.
The 3-day game lasted two days after rain washed out the final day. Although the West Indians were able to assess their batting and bowling, Lloyd explained that it might not be enough.
The 1st Test is scheduled to start on Wednesday at Centurion Park.
