I said if Bishoo is working with Dhanraj give him an opportunity to add variety to his bowling.

My statement about Bishoo not being effective was endorsed by the commentators on IPL today..."all the leggies who are taking wickets are doing so with the googly or flipper."

If Bishoo cannot bowl the googly consistently in the coming test match he should not be persisted with. It's time for him to have variety up his sleeve.

Muscle memory is working against him...it will be an uphill task.

(bold move too knowing that he (Chase) had a below standard FC season)


Roston Chase avg 41.44 with 373 runs with the bat and 24 wickets avg 19.16 with the ball....him Reifer,Greaves and Primus were the leading allrounders in the regional four day tournament.

Bishoo has the highest avg of ALL spin bowlers vs PAK presently playing...27 wickets at 31.07....he last took 7/123 in the last vs Pak in UAE in a winning cause....he merits his play.

My problem is the captain Holder. although he has the highest avg of ALL bowlers vs Pak 9 wickets at 23.66...he needs to produce the kind of performance one of his challengers Reifer did for the Prez 11 vs Pak...he needs to step up with bat and ball and continue from the 5fer he took against Pak in the last test they played.

Simple...play Holder at 5 and play a Reifer or Cornwall type at 8. In fact on certain wickets like perhaps in Jamaica you can leave out Bishoo and play another quick like Kemar Roach.

I challenge anyone to tell me that Holder won't make as many runs as a Blackwood. That said Vishaul Singh must play.

There are three slots to fill from the last series. #2, #3 and #4 batsmen. So Powell replaces Johnson at #2. Hetmyer replaces lil Bravo at #3. Hope replaces Samuels at #4. Singh shadows Blackwood.

Brathwaite
Powell
Hetmyer
Hope
Blackwood
Chase
Dowrich
Holder
Bishoo
Joseph
Gabriel

I agree with mkcharles here....Singh must play!

Hetmyer in front Blackwood is no problem with me though...Hetmyer is one for the future and a possible future captain.

These selectors could NEVER get it right!

Blackwood? Dead weight

Chase? Nothing since the 100 vs India, A good off break bowler should bowl doosra. Did nothing really this season.

Cummings? Nothing, no impact.


Mohammed. Inform
Cornwall. Good all rounder
Reifer. All round signs

As well as the need for good batsmen against spin bowling vs Pak. Our pitches are more suitable for spin bowling, yet our batsmen are unable to play good spin bowling. This series is going to be a no contest in Pakistan favor.

Singh batted really well against Shah and co in his last knock. His left handedness is required against this Pakistan attack. More than anything he look like the sort of temperamentally strong type that this team needs at this time.

As for Hetmyer it's a hard call. He is a very talented boy who could be a future star. International cricket in a weak team is the hardest way to do it. If he does come off, we will have a very special player so I wish him well.

I could agree with you but until Blackwood,Chase and Cummins fails and fails they will be around this squad.

Chase needs some test runs but he is sustained after being on a winning test team and maintaining his status in the regional competition as the best batsman of all the wicket taking spinners.

Cummins for the third consecutive season on averages and wickets remains the leading fastbowler in the regional tournament.

Blackwood is on the ropes. A knockout punch of a failure could put him out as he has no regional stats or test stats to back his retention except the feeling he is a "big day" man.

Blackwood has shown nothing in the long form even at Regional level avg 31?????

Jason Mohd is in form and should be in the squad.

Bishoo is lucky as a leggie without a flipper and googly to still be getting a look.

We need good batsmen of spin and pace against Pak. cool

It will be hard to win a Test match with only 3 recognized bowlers and Jason Holder.

So we must go in looking to take 20 wickets.

Kraigg
Powell
Hope
Blackwood
Chase
Holder
Dowich
Bishoo
Joseph
Gabriel
Cummings

JoMo has always been a very good 50 over batsman. We seem to think because he is doing it now in international ODI that it means that he has changed fundamentally as a batsman.

What has happened is that he has now converted his List A form to international matches.

There is nothing that JoMo has done in the past or now after 12 seasons suggest that he should play Test Cricket, even before Blackwood.

JoMo, Carter and a few others have all the natural talent in the world but they are not temperamentally good enough to play Test Cricket. Blackwood will fall by the wayside unless he realizes that in test cricket the top six collectively has to bat 80 percent of 200 odd overs to save a cricket match. If he or any of them can't bat 200 balls in a test cricket match they won't make the grade.

If five batsmen can't make runs then the team ia beaten before the match start.

Beside Holder and Dowrich has better technique than most in the top five.

I think this team well short on bowling and missing Cornwall and Roach

6.Dowrich
7. Cornwall
8. Holder
9. Bishoo
10.Roach
11. Gabriel

Reifer should actually play for Holder

The actual XI from the squad though

KB
KP
Hetmyer
Hope
Blackwood
Chase
Dowrich
Holder
Bishoo
Gabriel
Joseph

Why the hell is Cummins being persisted with..And when will Holder be replaced by a better bowler?
