CWI selectors are sending this team to Tour England.


Roston Chase 48.53
Jason Holder 30.71
Kraigg Brathwaite 35.61
Jermaine Blackwood 31.33
Shane Dowrich 28.77
Kieran Powell 27.40
Shai Hope 19.57
Devendra Bishoo 16.30
Shimron Hetmyer 16.00
Kemar Roach 10.38
Miguel Cummins 6.00
Shannon Gabriel 5.26
Alzarri Joseph 3.00
Kyle Hope - 000
Raymon Reifer 000


13 Test Players with that average of 21.45

A dry and humid summer awaits, so our friend RAIN is not expected.
The ball swinging, veteran seasoned, Pommie team vs CWI and an inexperienced bunch of players !!!!

What do you think will happen?

Sheep to the wolves.

Now do we see why the players should not be criticized.

Is a beat dong of epic proportion awaiting CWI players?
Within how many days are we expected to wave the white flag?

We saw what happened to the women's team. Now they lack confidence.

If those players you mentioned were selected they have experience playing in England.
I am not saying they wouldn't get a beatdong.

I am looking at CWI players and their mental disposition after the Tests in conditions
that will be new to them.

The women's team are shell shocked and they had a few players with experience.

Why not Gayle for Brathwaite? Or Darren Bravo for Hope? Or Dwayne Bravo for Holder? Or anybody for Cummmins?

So if each player achieves his average throughout the series then 300 is a big ask.
We need a few players to up their game.

Go ahead and do it , let see how much the Avg move.

Tamarind don't get your panties wet, you don't wear any?

I agree with your statement and my point is that The team with superstar are Averaging the same as the non -stars,
however, an experienced team may perform better, but the non stars may perform just like the superstars

Gayle (opener) for Brathwaite (opener)

Darren Bravo (#3/middle order batsman) for Shai Hope ( #3/middle order batsman)

Dwayne Bravo (all rounder) for Holder (all rounder)

Anybody (take your pick) for Cummins (bowler?)

Darren would be the #3 batsman to UK and was part of the team ,U cannot swap any body for Cummins, fast bowler for fast bowler.

Listen, anyway u slice it, the superstar AVG are marginal better when compare to the non-superstar.

Let me help you out bro;
Can Gayle last a full day in a test match?
Kraigg Brathwaite is not Gayle's replacement, if anyone think Chris can last a day, then Kraigg will be his openening partner.
Darren Bravo, should be the #3 batsman
I would not pick any of the T20 specialist for a test series, until I see their performances in a regional 4-day game.

Gayle for Brathwaite shouldn't even be used as Brathwaite has been our best test opener since Gayle left. Gayle for Powell/Kyle/Hetmeyer whoever opening with Brathwaite.

U have to read Tamarind Jones post to follow what happening, the stars/ Seniors are Gayle, simmonds, Pollard, big Bravo ,Ramdin, Samuels and Sammy.

Lil Bravo played on the last tour and will be on this tour had he not confronted the big idiot, and in my scenario is still with the current team.
if you replace Gayle, Ramdin, Samuels, Bravo and Sammy with Brath, Dowrich, Blackwood, Chase and Holder, the performance in term of AVG is marginal.
but Imusic want to replace Bravo with Shai, Gayle with Brath and Cummins with anyone to gain an advantage in AVG.

Even with the best team selected, we haven't done squat. If we want to be competitive, Cricket in the region must improve ASAP. As it is, our batting ain't that bad, but the bowling is atrocious. On a good day we can bowl out a side, but those days are seldom and far apart.

Hola et al.....

This bunch will do just fine......the batsmen just need to occupy the crease ...bat long and stay focus....same goes for the bowlers.
The train has left and those supposedly star players..who incidentally did not bring us glory are not needed....
We need to work with what we got...not what we had...
Adios

Roston Chase 48.53

And all the time according to the experts on here I thought no current player in the WI has a 40+ average...

Why debate a lead post that is horribly flawed? Including two players as 000? Looking at batting average for bowlers?

He could have stuck to the batsmen to make him point.

The selectors seem to be trying but the selections need some fine tuning. Might be complicated now with the veterans back, but they need to get the right players for the right format.
On another note, Kyle Hope - justified selection?

Since ya clueless I will take you through the flawed data.

Including two players as 000?


These two have not played Test cricket as yet and they were not included in the average.

Looking at batting average for bowlers?


So the bowlers don't bat huh ? The bowler's runs are not added to the team total huh ?


Now ya see why you are flawed and not the lead post.

Here you go again predicting doom and gloom for a Bajan player, could not keep your envy out of the discussion.


u r completely ignoring what the original post which is the superstar/ senior vs the experienced team.


if you were to replace Powell, Blackwood, Holder, Dowrich, and Chase with Gayle/Simmonds, Samuels, Sammy, Ramdin and Dw Bravo, there is no significant rise in the avg, or that the inexperienced group average will be higher.

What u want to do is selectively use players to have predetermined result.
