Carlos still riding high on his WC heroics. Seems like it's a 2 year high.

 
analyst-kid 2017-03-18 10:43:58 

My only critique is Fletcher...what has he done for WI or the Windwards lately?

The selectors must have done a good, no cussing from the gallery

Simmio at four Marlon at three and Lewis at the top

 
Narper 2017-03-18 11:10:15 


The squad reads:

Jason Mohammed
Sunil Narine
Veerasammy Permaul
Kieron Pollard
Rovman Powell

Good squad

Johnson Charles is out. Fletcher must be the keeper.

Last chance for de remember de name man....and he is cappo to boot....more presshah on him

 
pariaman 2017-03-18 11:10:38 

As long as we have "Investment" pick (especially a man who cannot get dropped) we will be winning only in spite of Brown

No way. When he can reject the retainer and still keep the captaincy, he looks like the next Sammy... all he would need is a couple of wickets or 1 good score to be there at the top

Yep that's my 11 too.

Smh.. bajan mafia!! Too many bajans... not enough tt

 
doosra 2017-03-18 11:51:30 

the format wi dominate is not dominated by bajans

a gaan big grin

 
imusic 2017-03-18 12:23:26 

Interesting.

Captain of the West Indies team does not have a WICB retainer contract

Gopaul luck is not Seepaul luck

Simmio at four Marlon at three and Lewis at the top


Simmons is a top world class T20 player....you need that player at the top to set the run pace and guide your innings...Lewis inexperienced..most often or not an early wicket at the top.

 
imusic 2017-03-18 12:28:40 

In reply to Narper

Why would Fletcher be the keeper when you have Chadwick Walton in the team?

 
timeless99 2017-03-18 12:57:52 

In reply to analyst-kid

With Lewis and Walton power at the top and given that the middle order is in experience it will be wise to have Simmons there and also he is one of the few on the team who can find gaps nd rotate the strike nd he is good against spin

 
90mph 2017-03-18 13:19:19 

Jason Mohammed...How come he in this squad?

Has Chris Gayle retired?

 
timeless99 2017-03-18 13:24:08 

That's a good question was he unavailable for selection or was he over looked

Fletcher is Walton's deputy.

In reply to 90mph

Jason Mohammed had a brilliant CPL

does that count?

 
buds 2017-03-18 14:01:40 

In reply to imusic

Good question--

What has Fletcher done of late of even in the recent past to play ahead of Walton? WI cannot afford to keep carrying passengers!!

 
ayub 2017-03-18 14:37:15 

walton
lewis
samuels
simmons
carter/jmo
powell
pollard
carlos
narine
badree

I don't believe he has been keeping in recent times

 
goliath 2017-03-19 03:48:08 

In reply to ayub Good team although I would play Holder ahead of Taylor

 
timeless99 2017-03-19 06:15:28 

In reply to goliath

Is Holder a better bowler than Taylor?

 
Kay 2017-03-19 14:51:11 

Pollard? I haven't heard about him in a long time....

 
goliath 2017-03-19 14:55:53 

In reply to timeless99 Wrt. 4 x T20 overs, I don't think there is much to choose between them but Holder is a much better bat

 
TheTrail 2017-03-19 15:03:28 

In reply to openning

Johnson Charles should have been in this team.He is a better batsman than André Fletcher.

 
Hendra 2017-03-19 15:23:41 

[b]In reply to TheTrail[/b
He has not done much of late but he was one of the leading bats in last year's cpl...and if players are picked for performance in specific local leagues, then he should've been in.

 
TheTrail 2017-03-19 16:17:30 

In reply to Hendra

They should replace Lewis with him.

Lewis is a sitting duck for good bowling.

Deep and short midwicket

Deep long on

Short mid off and he is a gonna!

 
Scar 2017-03-19 22:06:34 

Pollard has not done much in quite a while, Samuels??, Narine is 50% of what he was with the doosra type ball, Fletcher??? The other teams discarding non producers who are even better than WI own and WI still recycling ?

Simmons
Walton
Lewis
Samuels
Carter
Pollard
Powell
Brathwaite
Narine
Badree
Taylor


Also in agreement with that XI, only change is the batting order

Lewis opens, Simmons at 3 Pollard and Powell bat before Carter

 
granite 2017-03-20 12:55:40 

In reply to doosra
Ah wasn't aware of that,but he's my boy and there was no reason why Warrican was picked in front of him or Miller.I hope he does well,and keeps his place.

cool

 
doosra 2017-03-20 13:07:12 

In reply to granite

he might run water since badree and narine there but yea he getting a food so why not big grin

 
timeless99 2017-03-20 20:23:24 

I will pick Taylor over holder cause Taylor is the better bowler and even if holder is a better batsman I will make the selection because of the fact we selecting a bowler and not an all rounder and which is the better bowler .

Narine

You missing a bowler.

Holder

 
timeless99 2017-03-21 09:35:26 

Taylor,Narine,Badree and the investment should bowl four each and polly,samuels,Rovman and carter can make up the other four overs

 
natty_forever 2017-03-21 09:48:01 

In reply to Narper... who you talking?, as Walton is the Yaad keeper.

That is not enough – WI cricket need some white West Indian boys in this team to shake it up.

We tried Seven Jamaicans in the team at one point, Six Barbadian, and Six Titties and we gotten nowhere.

In the words of the PG Donald: “what do you have to lose?”
