In reply to imusic

Are you deliberately forgetful? You forget he is the last WI player to hit a century against a reputable team, albeit warm up match but it still counts.
Clearly Walton as Keeper and Gayle as Captain.

 
VoopsandOut 2017-07-04 19:37:21 

In reply to Slipfeeler

I agree. Walton in Lewis out. He has been struggling in any event.

Hopefully Beaton in and Taylor out

We can then sit and try to unravel the continuing mystery of why they play poor Rovam Powell and hide him from both bat and ball

Good selection this is, still way too many bajans though

It's a clear case of overcompensation.

The only possible player selected w/o merit is Carlos..

 
timeless99 2017-07-04 21:05:34 

Hope should of played ahead of Walton and Simmons ahead of mohammad

 
bobby 2017-07-04 22:27:08 

A clear indication that the selectors do not have a clue is the selection of Jason Mohamed on a T20 team.

This is a strong team.

The fast bowling..maybe not...Taylor has been taking a hammering lately...

Looks like a team India were expecting to face in the 1-day series.....but....oh well...

The fast bowling may be a bit suspect but my goodness! Lot's of firepower even without Russell, Sammy & Bravo the elder.

Sammy and fire power in the same sentence? Really?

 
DIEHARD 2017-07-05 14:23:12 

In reply to SirGarny

Trust me..Russell, Big Bravo and Sammy are big big ingredients in the recipe for the limited limited overs success we have enjoyed in recent times.

The other key player being Gayle, i believe once you have those 4...dont matter much who the other 7 are cool

But Gayle now on the decline..and those 3 missing..trust..it will be interesting to see how Sunday turns out

We're talking batting firepower. Sammy has been know to finish a few matches with just brute strength...not in the caliber of a Russell but he's a threat to clear the boundary ropes....

Sabina no longer Taylor made?

 
natty_forever 2017-07-06 07:42:43 

In reply to XDFIX... Always, but then, you need to play Taylor to find out.

That's why the T20 is on Sunday...it wouldn't be the other way around, because it wouldn't make marketing sense. Hardly anybody goes to ODIs any more.
cool
