Carl Hooper Should He Be In The West Indies Team And If So Should He Captain It A debated topic among the West Indian cricket community right now is whether or not Carl The Prodigal Son Hooper should be in the West Indies team for the upcoming series against South Africa More importantly some seem to think that he should not only be recalled but that he should be also made captain Hoopers return to international cricket if he is successful in his campaign is going to be met with a mixture of feelings and this essay will attempt to view the factors behind these feelings Based strictly on his performance in the recently concluded Busta Cup Series of matches it would appear that the Hooper supporters have legitimate justification in asking for his recall to the team To this point Hooper has scored 889 runs at an average of 97 in addition to taking 24 wickets However there are those who believe that this is not enough to warrant his playing for the West Indies again They contend that Hooper has always had the ability to play at that level but this is not reflected in his past international record Before retiring Hooper played 80 Tests scoring 4153 runs at an average of 3376 while taking 93 wickets As a result his critics are of the opinion that Hooper is an under-achiever he does as much as is necessary to get by and nothing more He is even known to have said that in a Test Series his goal is to score one century His critics believe that his outstanding performance in the Busta Series was just to get himself back in the team and as soon as he is there he will revert to his previous way Then they are critics who believe that even if Hooper continues his outstanding play he still should not be called to the West Indies team
