Yep for now Chase plays. I'd like to see Cornwall or Jacobs in the squad but couldn't expect much changes in this the first test after the Paki series. I think the coach would like to see what the team was and then he might suggest some changes.

I don't see that happening (with them leaving out Aljo and Blacky)
The two who will be out will be the two debutants.

Blackwood should not be playing for Jamaica let alone WI...but then again we are taking about West Indies Selectors.

Brathwaite
Powell
Hetmyer

I see Cummins and one of Singh or Hetmyer sitting. One Guyanese will sit and the other Guyanese will make his debut.

The eleven that will start on Friday in batting order will be...

1. K. Brathwaite
2. K. Powell
3. S. Hope
4. V. Singh (deserving debutant. I wish you great success)
5. J. Blackwood (it is a very bold move to stick with him after his continued failures in FC this season...being the only Jamaican also in the squad and playing at Sabina helps him to be in the starting X1)
6. R. Chase (bold move too knowing that he has generally had a below standard FC season)
7. S. Downrich (hoping he will remember how to bat)
8. J. Holder
9. D. Bishoo (does not deserve to play over Cornwall or Jacobs who are better wicket taking bowlers at this time)
10. A. Joseph
11. S. Gabriel

Carrying water for the first test will be Hetmyer (excellent to give an open door to a classy youth) and Cummins (I do not see why the selectors stick with him. He is a hot and cold player who is mostly cold)

Players who have been wrongly left out of the squad (J. Mohammed, R. Cornwall and R. Reifer)
