Rakheem Cornwall should have been in this squad ahead of Reifer.

Look at how the English pitches are turning in this dry summer. Cornwall's 141 fc wickets from 30 games offers more than Reifer's 99 wickets from 50 games. There isn't much difference in their batting.

How else would they get to maintain the Bajan count at 9.

In other words, the Bajan count should be rounded up to double figures, at whose expense makes no never-minds (southern speak).

Powell
Brahtwaite
K Hope/ Hety
Blackwood/ S Hope
Chase
Dowrich
Holder
Reifer
Aljo / Bishoo
Roach/ Cummings
Gabriel


If they are true to recent form however..Bishoo, Hety and Shai will retain their spots..with Blackwood coming in for the dropped walking wicket Vaginal Singh.

That # 3 spot is problematic..

I think Hety and Shai should be dropped unless they average > 40 in the warmup games

Why is Cummings still in the squad?

He is the poor mans Darren Powell

I agree. I would have gone for Cornwall before Reifer. Good to see Roach back in our colours and I wish him well. The warm up matches will be very interesting as KH and KP fight for the other opening spot with KB and Hetmeyer and Blackwood fight for the middle order slot. Everyone else basically picks himself I think. Will we dare go with 3 quicks, Bishoo and the Cap? I think we need to have the bowlers to try to bowl England out. I do not expect too much of our batsmen sad

Let me be blunt, this is not a very good squad and we will be defeated by England. There is a truce so it is my hope in future we will mix youth with experience and try to win cricket games. The other teams try to put their best foot forward. It is time we try to do the same.

I would argue that instead of picking Cornwall ahead of Reifer, we should be picking Nikita Miller ahead of Miguel Cummins.

It's been an unusually dry summer for England so far, and as a result, England have played two spinners, Moeen and Dawson, against South Africa in both Tests to date. We should at least have two spinners in the squad, and Miller has outperformed every Caribbean spinner this decade.

The treatment of a class player like Cornwall hurts very much. Why do they think his size will affect his performances on the field? This is so wrong. How can Cummings (only one example of those chosen) be of more value than Cornwall? evil

Cornwall is in Direct competition for the spinning allrounder position which is being held by Chase now. With Chase performing well I do not see Cornwall getting his chance anytime soon in the test arena. Bishoo is the primary Spinner in the tests and he too is going to hold his position.

While I too question the selection of Cummings it is in favor of another quick like Beaton.
