Is "pushing too fast" a euphemism for not ready for test cricket?

Yep

I thought I already stated so

Thank you.

So, Hetmyer is NOT READY FOR TEST CRICKET...

...and VISHAL SINGH is READY.

Got you loud and clear now.

Hetmyer is a future star and future captain....any exposure of him now will be a future investment for WI cricket.

I am not quite sure what you trying to establish here.

Fore the records....on this board we have had this debate whether Xman was ready...whether Barath was ready...Kraigg Brathwaite was ready....Shai Hope was ready...now Hety

I get the feeling you think I have some ulterior motive with this thread

This ends here

Absolutely not.

...Fore the records....on this board we have had this debate whether Xman was ready...whether Barath was ready...Kraigg Brathwaite was ready....Shai Hope was ready...now Hety...


...but not whether Vishal Singh is ready. ...at least not yet.

Maan...I have to explain everything in detail for you.wink Slow day today?

Singh is an "ole fart' who made the test squad...he has been around for 8 years having debuted for Mudland since 2008...no one is overly excited except probably his family and close friends

On the other hand...Hety is young and an exciting prospect....genuine fans have Hety's interest at heart...I want him to be successful...I want him to be another WI international star....I have seen too many youngsters come and go....hence my caution of throwing him to 'the wolves' too early

Like fans do for Hety now, there was high hopes at the time for X-man too ... he just didn't live up to expectations

Nice thread ... but someone had to piss on it sad

I think because of the position that Hety bats at, he is more likely to start in the first test. We are trying to replace #2, #3 and #4 batsmen. Hety bats in all of those positions, I believe. My impression is that Singh is more of a #5, #6 batsman, so I am expecting him to be challenging Blackwood or Chase.

You are correct...he is a top order batsman.

Bravo is missing from the #3 position.

Hety may very well get this spot.

It has to be Blackwood vs Singh

I will play Chase...he is the allrounder with the spin option.

Recently, we were debating if Alzari Joseph was ready for Test cricket. Hetmyer's seems to be a similar case.

Not every batsman with outstanding performances in first class cricket would necessarily do well in Tests, as Devon Smith showed, more than once.

Ultimately, you can't learn to swim by practicing on dry land. You have to get into the water.

Xavier was probably the most attractive batsmen ever, for me. You just wanted to see him striking the ball, without caring much for the results. It was like watching a ballerina. The moves were what mattered, not the story. In Xavier's case, the story was almost always very lousy. Even he himself seemed not to care much about his own 'story'.

With Hetmyer it's different. He is about the story. He is the architect that executes like the ballerina. That's why WI cricket needs him.

The very best to young Hetmyer!

WE ALL KNOW MARSHAL'S PROBLEM.....but he failed to live up to expectations years before his problem became public knowledge....like when he was sent out of Stanford camp in the $20 million T20 match

You are embarrassingly slow...and to think we have de same agewink

My lead post clearly states before the 1st test

Anyway.....almost immediately after U-19 world cup...Marshall played 2 tests and failed miserably !!!!

It took another THREEyears before he got another test match

HEHEHEHEHEHEHHEHEHEHEH...in de age of Trump

To be fair, that was the scab tour. I don't know if they'd have picked him otherwise.

In 1992 the young Ronnie Sarwan (16 yrs old I believe) made an attractive 92 against the touring Pakistanis in Bim. That may be a better comparison with young Hetmeyer.

The reports on Hety was how calm and mature he was at the U19WC. It was reported that the Indians tried to get in his head when he batted with snipes about bringing on spinners to bother him and he simply smiled and said spin is not a bother. Our lefties seem to be ar sea vs offspin so lets see if Hety masters that demon.
