the boy Carter is the form player and currently the best player in the team and you drop him? Why? Maybe to lose form.
The earlier decision to finish with Dwayne Smith was a stupid one too....WI short of limited overs openers and Smith deserved one last go once selected and making runs...the whitewash might very well be have been averted because Smith like him or not is a match winner.
Bajan selectors following right after the WI selectors in doing shyte.

They (the selectors) destroyed Kirk Edwards career.

I disagree. Kuk destroyed his own career. After the kit bust up he failed to make runs.

You nailed it...this is 2 years I've been pointing out this re Stoute...underbowling and leaving out allrounders of similar ilk to him.

what does that have to do with anything?

The question was why was he dropped from Barbados team. Cherri's post suggests it could be because he was in windpipes squad. You sought to contra by asking if he's the only one. I am suggesting what Barbados may have done not why other teams may have done differntly

What is it about Stoute that Bajans hate him so much. Is it his nutcase father, or his fruitcake brother? You people become ridiculously irrational when it comes to this guy. I don't know the guy but from what I have seen of him he is the type of cricketer that wi cricket needs more of. Limited talent but willing to step up to the plate and perform under pressure. I am not surprised he made runs today. He had a poor couple of spells bowling yesterday as did Cummins, both not adjusting to the slow but bouncing wicket and bowling too short. The type of abuse that was being hurled at their captain by spectators was as ugly as it was comical. In between the cussing was comments about him needing to give up the game and go and sing for his supper like his father. I am really lost as to the relevance of who his father is.
You have at least acknowledged his toughness but you go following behind the Trail along some conspiracy theory about Stoute conniving for the last couple years to keep out other allrounders. Seriously man...you all sound like real Trumpists. Stoute has barely established himself in the team was only captain last year for a brief period when Kraigg did not show up. What influence do you really think he has on team selection?
As an entertainer yourself you should be sensitive to the ridicule Stoute faces because of his Dad. Don't follow Trail down the road of his foolishness. I bet Trail aint had your schooling. Even if you didn pay attention while you were there I know you learnt the art of critical thinking and can divorce personal prejudice from your decision making. I coming to see you perform tomorrow night. Don't make me start a boo chorus 'gainst you.

Becareful with words bro, Trail maybe your doctor if he return to bim after his studies.

Stoute is an excellent cricketer who has been given a raw deal IMO.
My only issue with Stoute is to see how amusing when he is captain he underbowls other allrounders.
In the last tournament Holder did the same to him by not even given him a bowl and I criticised Holder for that.

Lots of fellas beat books and achieve professionally as a result. But thats not the type of schooling I was speaking to.

Phillips has no present; one 100 in 100 innings ......
What happenned by accident should have happened by design; Stoute open and Carter bat in the middle, Williams should have played in the previous match instead of Phillips as well.

How them know Stoute didn't want him take any more wickets?[quote]
Hate to belabour the point but if Stoute wanted to undermine allrounders ostensibly because they compete with him for a team spot he surely should have taken off Chase and not Cummins. He has in fact given Chase more of a bowl in a match with Nurse in the squad than other Barbados captains have. A good thing in my view as I have been convinced that at least in the longer game format that Chase is a better offspinner than Nurse.

You call this logic and making such a general statement??
Oh well, the least said the better...continue with your lilliputian narrative
