King cant get in because there is simply no space and he has not stood out. Carter was/is 'a really good talent' and how did he turn out?
You cant discard Singh so fast, Brooks has earned this and so too has the others, only so much you can select.

Lohnson has been given many chances while Charles and Carter might be in the One Day A teams. If Carter isn't then thats his doing as he has never taken any chance he has gotten unlike Charles.

There's guys like McCarthy and Walton who should be in the 1day A team.
I'd actually throw in Paint and Chase if they are available.

I agreed/disagreed with you on Carter, he may have talent, but fail time again, he may not make Bim 4d team, I think that Charles could be given one more run in OD.

I have not seen King, but if he that talented give it a chance.

I agree with everything you said about Leveridge, these MB think that everyone who bowled 2 overs at 145 will make it at international level, especially at 27.

f you as a selector TRULY believe these guys have the goods to eventually succeed at international level....you have to give them every opportunity to succeed.

Dude, Johnson captained the A team, prior to making it to the International level, some believe he is the best captain, in the region.
It is crazy to discard him so quickly.
What I am saying to the public, he should be back in the A team, and given back the Captain's hat, let Brooks be the VC..

...too early for King, another season or two, altho, Yaad handling of the yute leaves a lot to be desired, not sure how many games he will get. Why we have a problem with lighter skinned individuals, so it seems from where I am standing.


YAAD selectors our motto is 'OUT OF MANY ONE PEOPLE" lets live it!

To get into an A team?

Disagree. He has above average talent IMO. Now whether that talent translates to the international arena remains to be seen.....but I don't think talent like that should be left to "develop" in regional cricket.

1 - we don't play enough cricket in the region

2 - no substitute for experience and exposure against international teams...especially players deemed to be above average

Agreeing with you on King, very talented cricketer but he will have to kick the door down next tournament, he has the goods but needs to convince selectors and fans. Only by putting up some big scores similar to his 191 against T&T.

Lol. Some of you guys criticizing selections just for the sake of it. People that understand cricket and follow cricketers careers from youth made decision that Shai Hope worth the long term investment. People that understand cricket know that its a miracle that Johnson Charles got this far. People that follow players career understand that Carter dont have the mental fortitude for the long form of the game...despite his talent. People that follow players careers got about 2 first class matches to judge King on. Thats good enough for a fast bowler (a la Mike Holding) but even a tailender can make a one off century.

"Very good post, l agree 100%."

That says all that needs to be said about you and your mental processing.

Good team. Players like Carter and Charles should stay far away from A Team tours until they can consistently dominate regional tournaments. Saw Cariah as a youth and expected him to be here a little sooner. Very good allrounder in the making. Have to also send a good bowling coach to teach these fast bowlers the basics of fast bowling.

The "A" team should be made up of performers from our FC tournament. A reward for their hard work and dedication. SIMPLE!

IMO, No.

Shiv always deserved it. He dedicated his entire life to Test Cricket.
Infact he was the backbone of the team from 2007-2014.
Yet, he wasn't given the opportunity for a send off test...

Gayle has been away from Test cricket for really long. I don't think he deserves it.

It is the same people, that have us at the bottom of the International standings.
Who are these experts?

We know that but it seems like there is not much coaching regionally because the same mistakes occur yearly. At least on a tour the coach will get to work with them closely for a period of time.

No-one said to discard Johnson, but Brooke won the last series, Johnson has to work his way back into the team, there chemistry within the team which foster well for the future.

In reply to seaegg99... hence my call for academies to bridge the gap between U19 and FC cricket. I would rather my coach of law, work on strategies, as well as to correct flaws that may creep in over time.

Agree. Lot of young talent that will go to waste if not harnessed. This is a reoccurring problem with player development. Should really be a player development department staffed with coaches to work with players year round.

Some people have others looking out for them, that might be the case of Singh, he was a ' walking wicket ' in the series verses Pakistan, when they toured the Caribbean last June, however he is now selected as vice-captain of the A team. Singh is close to being thirty years old, how much of an investment is he?

In reply to dayne

late bloomer?

He's been making runs regularly in regional 4 day cricket the past few seasons. Yet got exposed when he played for the WI senior team.

Which is a bad indicator for those that insist that players MUST regularly play 4 day cricket to be eligible for the WI test team. Or players MUST regularly play 50 over cricket to be eligible for the WI ODI team.

If you can play against the best in the world....and have success.....that experience alone is way more valuable than playing domestic cricket IMO
