Former West Indian skipper, Carl Hooper has expressed his frustrations and has called for an administrative change as the Windies were humiliated by the Aussies in the 2nd Test at Adelaide.

Kraigg Brathwaite and his troops lost the Pink-Ball Test by a massive 419 runs and their second innings total of 77 was the equal seventh lowest total in West Indies Test history.

They lost 6 for 39 in 18.5 overs on day 4 as Australia sealed the series 2-0. Moreover, this was West Indies' heaviest defeat in terms of runs.

Hooper calls for a change

"It's getting more and more embarrassing, I'm hurt today. I've never played in a West Indies side that got bundled out under 100. We are not fighting to qualify for major tournaments, how much longer can we go?

We've changed captains, we've changed personnels, we've changed coaches, it hasn't worked for us. So let's go a little bit higher and get people in these positions that can lead us in right directions."

Hooper captained West Indies in 22 Tests. He amassed more than 5000 runs and took more than 100 wickets in both Tests and ODIs.
