I have lost interest in WI cricket for many reasons and one of them is the age long disrespect for J'can players. This youngster has played 22 test matches and compiled scores over 50 ten times..That's good raw material to build on in a pathetic player pool like the WI...Dowrich and Blackwood are, in my opinion, the two best young players they have, the former is woefully out of form, yet he plays and Blackwood is dropped before his home crowd...Matter of fact, Chase has been terrible recently, yet he plays...Dowrich, Chase and Blackwood should all be in starting team...

It's odd that he's always picked and somehow finds his way into the starting XI.

22 Tests and a 31 average is not anything to get worked up about.

Dropping Blackwood at this time is a big mistake.

I would hazard a guess that the overriding decision came from the coach.

I also would have played Blackwood. I en dropping a test player until he fails enough at test level to justify the drop. Regional form is for people trying to get in the test team.

You are lying... you are on a WI cricket related message board posting about a WI cricket related topic.

Be honest with yourself.

Depends on what is par the the course at the time. When we were kings par was a much higher standard. Today par is much lower and in this time in West Indies cricket blackwood has not been a failure at test level.

who else on the team has an average higher than him?

Certainly it's not the great Bajan Hope (who averages 18 by the way)

I too believe that Blackwood's performance lately has been sub-par, and in some instances woeful...and deserving of a drop.

Hate to say it Wally but he brought it on himself.



Now ....overall selection policy? A completely different discussion! evil confused

Wally...look at his scoreline...51 5 32 108* 7 29 37 2 47 68 16 2 2 4 44

You wouldn't accept this from Devon Smith!

In five of those FC innings he doesn't total 40 runs! Cyaaaaaan defend dhat!

This is test cricket, his test performance is what counts..Devon is a fc bully that twinkles big grin at test level..Not saying Blackwood has a formidable record but it is not bad for the early part of his career.
By the way, Rabalac to the wurl.

Yes totally, Blackwood deserved this drop. The dude averages a mediocre 31 in Test cricket after 22 matches and has been in poor form of late. He should't be anywhere near a West Indies team for a while. Brathwaite, Chase, heck, even Dowrich are all averaging more than him currently. If Blackwood is to hold down a place at number 4 or 5 as a "senior" batsman in the team, he should be averaging over 40 (like the great Shiv did throughout his career). The Hopeless Hope actually averages only 16 now, which is pathetic. So he too should be dropped soon if his average continues to plummet. He may look good at times and be hailed as the "best we have", but his stats don't show it. lol

I agree with this..

but I must disagree with this..

A guy averages 32 after 22 tests...his omission is justified. Yet a batsman who averages half that should be dropped SOON?

Explain please!

So you would continue to play Hope for many matches even if he continues to average 16 or less??
