Powell has not scored a SINGLE 50 for 15 tests and 29 innings, IT MUST BE SOME KIND OF RECORD for an TEST OPENING BATSMEN

and yet folks, BLINDLY PICK HIM

HILARIOUS

The Question should be: If Powell can get 15 Tests without a single 50, then why not Johnson (9 Tests only) or Fudadin (3 Tests only)

Certainly this cannot be the RIGHT BENCHMARK from a selection perspective

COURSE CORRECTION NEEDED

You guys should be championing the cause of Sunil Ambris to be selected for the West Indies team and to be the wicketkeeper in the starting eleven.
... yes but we learn our lesson. So we would like an Academy, A team tours and a few more FC matches under his belt. Losing not going anywhere soon.

In reply to thefacts... was Browne and co present during those two's selection? If not they just came too early. if yes, then Browne has now changed his selection policy.

I am watching out for Gayle.


While I am a big Chris Gayle fan.. I think he doesn't have any interest left in Test Cricket and I am fine with him not playing in the longer version, if that prolongs his ODI and T20 career.

The bigger candidate for Test Cricket would have been SHIV, the man is scoring runs in buckets every where he plays....

But I guess that chapter is also closed.

Just SUPREME TRAGEDIES.

not doing a comparison here blood. Looking at his performance and thinks it sucks, simple. The others being worse should also take care of that, if he as to go so do they ... again, simple.


I agree his approach is awful in tests.

As of now there is noone to replace him with.....

Powell looked better in the 3rd test after altering his batting stance, give him a few more games.

If Alleyne or Lewis make some runs then they can take the spot.

Hetmyer is in the squad. He should be the automatic choice first up.

Why can't Powell go back to domestic cricket, with his new stance and prove to everyone that him a better bat.

After 15 Tests, 29 innings and NOT A SINGLE SCORE OF 50... NO ONE CAN SAY THAT HE DIDN'T GET AN EPIC EXTENDED RUN.

I ASK YOU... Will you SUPPORT HETMYER FOR 15 TESTS WITHOUT A 50?
WILL ANY BOOT LICKER SUPPORT A NON-BOOT LICKER PLAYER FOR 15 TESTS WITHOUT A 50?

Answer HONESTLY.

I'll EXPOSE WHAT THE DOTTIE BOOT LICKERS ARE ACTUALLY HOPING FOR:

POWELL GOING ON THE TOUR OF ZIMBABWE ON THE PRETEXT OF NEW STANCE BS.

THATS HIS BEST CHANCE TO GET A 50.

BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS IN NEW ZEALAND, THE SKUNT WILL AGAIN BE SHOWN THE MIRROR.

ALL THIS BULL CRAP ABOUT NEW STANCE IS JUST TO SAVE THE SKUNT WHO ALREADY HAS GOT 15 TESTS WITHOUT A 50.

EPIC.

Why do you feel the need to type in capitals? Do you think typing like you are a 5 year old will ensure you are heard better? It does, however, highlight what a complete and utter brainless idiot you are and that too, very consistently! lol lol lol

Such a wasted thread with all your upper case typing sprouting absolute garbage (and all this when the teams have already been selected weeks ago hahahahaha!!!!!!!!!) And just think - time wasted is something you will never get back just like the rest of your wasteful life dwl.

Selection is difficult.

Some players are selected based on performance.

Some players are selected based on promise.

And some players are selected based on nationality.

`Onry said over & over again he wants to play test.

You are entitle to your "opinion" of course.... but I wish you would stick to "the facts".

Yes, it is my opinion. (and may be even wrong)

but i dont mind sharing my reasoning..

Its one thing, IMO, to say the right things, however I have observed with many, not only gayle, that their first preferemce is T20 leagues and I dont blame them since those leagues pay so well.

So when i see a player say he wants to play Test Cricket, and then that player doesnt play any 4-day cricket or county cricket etc, makes me wonder if the walk matches the talk?

and Like I said, Gayle is not the only one. He is just one of the many T20 big league players we have, Pollard-BigBravo-Simmons etc, who almost skip all the 4-day games tournaments

In reply to thefacts... Gayle has said he would like to play Test again, as recently as 3 weeks ago. For how long, I do not know. Opinion, for one last send off.

The only seniors need talkin about are Gayle, Samuels and Narine.
I don't consider Darren Bravo a senior, so the #3 spot is his.
I will let Shai keep,
Gayle
Brathwaite
Bravo
Hope wkp
Samuels
Chase
Blackwood
Holder
Narine
Roach
Gabriel

I would say, let Gayle play one domestic season. Let him earn that send off considering he hasn't played test cricket in a while.

Honestly, I am fine with Gayle playing just ODIs (Target 2019 World Cup, and more importantly first the qualifiers) and 2018 & 2020 T20 World Cups. I think that "moment" of Test Cricket has passed for Gayle... its a tragedy, but IMO, it has passed for him.

Summary: Those three World Cups should be Gayle's CAREER SIGN OFF TARGETS. (IMO)

shock shock shock

Bad Idea IMO.

The PLayer is just digging into the No.4 role. and to overload him with WK duties could destroy his career.

Shai should only and only FOCUS on BATTING.

Gayle, Samuels and Narine.


I think Gayle and Samuels are really past their Test Cricket stage in their careers.
They should focus on the upcoming World Cups (2018, 2019, 2020) to SIGN OFF ON THEIR CAREERS.

Narine, I am not sure is really interested in playing Test Cricket.

Could be. Although I will still give Narine the benefit of the doubt as He is yet to be called.

Also, IMO, there are plenty of "young" options for the spinners slot:

Leg-Spinners: Bishoo, Jacobs, Imran

Left-Arm: Permaul, Miller, Warricann, Motie-Kanhai

Off-Spinners: Cornwall

Unfortunately, WI selectors are clueless as usual.

I'd have Bishoo and Miller for the WI team.

and Jacobs/Imran + Permaul/Warricann/Motie-Kanhai + Cornwall for the A-team

--

Right now, in the BIZARRE BOOT LICKER SELECTION POLICY.. Favouring the BAJANS... Rest of the Talents from other regions are being royally ignored.

THATS A FACT. AND IT IS UNDISPUTED.

And you are the one who has all the clues right? That is why you resort to sprouting garbage on a message board instead of ever being able to dream of getting close to the international cricket scene dwl! lol lol lol lol
