LONDON, England (CMC) — Leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo will have the chance to break into the top 20 of the International Cricket Council's bowling rankings if he suits up for the opening Test against the Black Caps in Wellington starting tomorrow.

In the latest rankings released on Tuesday, the 32-year-old Guyanese rose two places to 21st, to lie just outside of the top 20 in the world.

Bishoo is coming off a productive tour of Zimbabwe where he grabbed 13 wickets in the two-Test rubber, to emerge as Man of the Series.

He was particularly impressive in the opening Test when he claimed a nine-wicket match haul as West Indies won by an innings inside four days.

There is no guarantee, however, that Bishoo will find a spot in the starting XI as West Indies have several pace options at their disposal in conditions which will be favourable to seam.

Speedster Shannon Gabriel is the highest ranked Windies bowler at 20th and will also have the opportunity to improve his ranking, as he is expected to spearhead the attack.

MOS. Nice. Excellent, as a matter of fact.

Well done, again.

There is no guarantee, however, that Bishoo will find a spot in the starting XI as West Indies have several pace options at their disposal in conditions which will be favourable to seam.
Ah... oh... no guarantee for the chap who just had Man of the Series? Hmm... sounds like we back to the 4-prong shyte-hound IF this man doesn't get a place in the starting XI. That would be a travesty. We shall see.

Speedster Shannon Gabriel is the highest ranked Windies bowler at 20th and will also have the opportunity to improve his ranking, as he is expected to spearhead the attack.
Good luck Shannon.

Fools All.
A wrist spinner does not necessarily depend on the pitch alone. A spinning track would help but a wristy can hold his own on any condition with the usual irregularities of long hops and full tosses in between as control is a professional hazard for wrist bowlers.

Roach is at 23. If Roach maintains form he might also break into the top twenty.

Gabriel 20

This four prong pace attack did brilliantly didn't it?

Chase bowled more overs than Roach.
