I see no test future in Reifer, otherwise the team looks fine.

It unfair to pick on Reifer, since he was selected on the senior squad, he was never given a chance to prove his worth of being or not being there! I like this squad!

In Reifer I see someone who bowls too slow to be effective, and doesnt bat well enough to be a batting allrounder. Larr says he has talent, maybe I haven't seen enough of him

Webster/Allen/King... What have they done? Are you talking about the match Trinidad/Guyana?

Lewis could make an excellent number 3, but unfortunately he is off playing T20.
Cariah is starting to knock on the door. Lets see if he has another good season

How do you know how effective he is or isn’t unless he get a chance to play? He is a darn good all rounder if you ask me based on his numbers fuh Guyana! He need a chance to show he does not belong just like others!

I would have taken Keon Joseph for Alzarri Joseph.

Alzarri would be better playing a couple of Regional matches & trying to find some form again.

The coaching staff probably believes that he is much better off going through their program, than playing in regional 4 day. His lack of form could simply be a result of the staff asking him to learn new stuff

With Blackwood in the final X1, who will get Kyle Hope slot?

Hetmyer is next in line.. Let's see how he fares against Boult and Southee. West Indies will probably struggle in NZ because NZ is a good side. How to get Latham, Guptill, Williamson and Taylor out?

This is going to be tough in NZ if we continue to use Holder as one of the four main bowlers. He should be the fifth bowler selected as a batting allrounder. We need a fourth bowler. It makes no sense playing the extra batsman that’s not producing (Blackwood). Play the extra bowler and try to get twenty wickets. This is the only avenue to compete. Blackwood and Cummings are just a waste of money.

Do we have a fifth bowler likely to get wickets?

From what I have seen of Hetmyer, I would not bat him at #3. If Blackwood is going to play, I rather send him at #3 to chance his hand. With the field crowded around the bat, his bold strokes might pay off

I fancy our chances more against New Zealand, than against England. England batted to #8, with two excellent #9 and #10 batsmen

What makes you say that when he hasn’t been doing much with the ball. Looks very ordinary to me. He needs to add at least a yard or two to his bowling in order to take advantage of his height. This is putting a lot of pressure on the other bowlers.

NZ is one of those teams that study and plan for their opposition. Braitwaite, Powell, and Chase will have a tough tour.
