Finally a team with deserving players. Brathwaite does take his share of wickets in this format and the fast 20 runs down the order will be gold. Beaton has been good in CPL. Evin Lewis earn his pick from Pak series. Mohammed in form of life. We all know about Narine and Pollard's exploit. Rovman is a good prospect. Samuels 2 time world T20 winner, big knocks. Simmons is a T20 boss. Walton has been good for jamaica in CPL and so has williams. Windies can get more value out of Fidel Edwards as a T20 bowler than Jerome Taylor though in my opinion. Edwards was magnificent for souks a season back. Slingy action at the death is gold!

Gabriel rested too or what?
On the inclusion of fast bowler, Ronsford Beaton: Our Head Coach, Stuart Law, has asked for someone who can add some firepower to the attack. We felt that Ronsford has shown he can bowl with sustained pace in T20 cricket. We are confident he will do very well.

Holder can't make a best windies T20 team, so right fully out. Seems like them boys eventually catching them senses at the selection table. I figure Johnson Charles a lil hard done though, has been magnificent in CPL and then in Florida for Windies. Last tour of windies in UAE wasn't good but who had a good one?

And I think with Gayle out the side, windies really need to start using Lendl Simmons as an opener where he has had soooooo much success in T20 for all his franchise. But anyways, with a not so hot middle order, he'll provide good stability.

They can get that from Sheldon Cottrell. He, I think, wasn't doing bad for his team, either last year or the year b4.

Overall outlook for the series: In developing a high performance unit there is never room for complacency and our expectation is to win against a team that is ranked lower than us in the ICC rankings.

Looks like everyone in the Windies is on one team or the other. Law asks and Law gets. I like it.

Two pacers have to sit

Narine
Simmonds
Mohammed
Lewis
Samuels
Pollard
Powell
Walton
Carlos
Badree
Kesrick

Taylor
Beaton

I know they more likely to play Taylor over Rovman

But i orefer Rovman's X factor to Taylor's experience.

Keswick Williams is a definite starter. Beaton is fighting with Taylor.

All three t20s at one venue.
rolleyes
It would be better to have two t20s in st kitts then a T20i and an odi in st Lucia then the remaining odis at somewhere else.

Spread it around.
