Don't think he would be fully recovered from that injury.

I think the seniors are smarter than most of allyuh, they made themselves unavailable for ODI, you really think they want to wrist injury playing test?
Sunil Narine and Darren Bravo declined to be considered for ODIs in England.
“Narine has however confirmed his desire to play 50-over cricket again but has asked to play in our Regional Super50 before he is considered and Darren said he was not available for selection. Dwayne Bravo said he is still not 100 per cent fit, but is looking at a possible return to international cricket next year,” Browne revealed.

I thought Dowrich would have gotten the axe because he performed so poorly in England. The man did not look like test material.

Man you should had listened to the Mason show.
Bishoo had plenty support
The last caller said, there was no yard stick to evaluate Bishoo, having bowled , only a few overs in the series
He went on to say, he was bowling 47 overs out of ninety, no one commented of the over-bowling of him then, or the under-bowling him, in the series.

The excuse seems to be that playing in England is hard.

Well in contrast playing against Zimbabwe should be easy. Anyone who can't perform against Zimbabwe should be given a golden handshake.

Dowrich with the bat, I have time for, but to be honest, his keeping of late is way below test standard. Kyle, Dowrich & Cummins lucky to be back on tour.

Dumb Trinis still won't gather the courage to stand up against this insult and GO ALONE.

Evin Lewis
Jason Mohd.
Dinesh Ramdin

all deserved to be on that team on MERIT... and instead WI Have:

Powell: 15 Tests and 29 innings, Not a single score of 50
Dowrich: His Wicket keeping is an embarrassment and his batting form has ditched him, but his passport remains his biggest skill
Cummins: He looked clueless, both in tests and ODIs. His test bowling average is 46.
Kyle Hope: This is again, a passport based selection. How he keeps J Mo out of the side, beats me.

THE BAJANS AND DOTTIES TEAM.

FUNNY AS FCUK

How can I reconcile moron thinking keep a few of these guys in this squad? It is so wrong when we have better players to choose from.
