Where de fans?

Catch the latest podcast which can be heard here. There seems to be a regular theme in recent weeks: namely negative thoughts on West Indian cricket. Lack of fast bowlers, fielding and now the decline in West Indian fans have all been covered.
This week I explore the association between West Indies and the Kennington Oval in south London. Once a spiritual home to the London Caribbean fraternity, now there isn't even the traditional last Test in the Wisden Trophy. Blame the convoluted fixtures calendar as India play there later in the summer. Anyway, I'm on the case of Alec Stewart and Rodney Hinds, the Voice newspaper's sports editor, for reason.
Know of any positive Caribbean stories before the tourists go home?
