Hope he does better than this today in BPL

Emrit to Samit Patel, FOUR, four consecutive. Over point this time. He shimmies out, hands free and carves it behind point. One bounced into the ropes

Emrit to Samit Patel, FOUR, make it three. Emrit keeps dishing out full lines on middle, Patel gets his front leg out and hands swinging in hammering it down. Dead straight

Emrit to Samit Patel, FOUR, toys around with short fine. A leg-sided line and places his glance to perfection, taking it just past the man out there, which is all he had to do

Emrit to Samit Patel, FOUR, pitched up and right in the slot. All intent from Patel, drilling it straight down, in muscular fashion

Rayad Emrit, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack

One over 17 runs.

Well deserved, should have been done like yesterday cool

Emrit is a good cricketer but played in the wrong era with so many other all rounders in the region such as bravo, pollard, Russell, Carlos, etc

But he not better than any of those you called.

And those you called are usually referred to on this msb as mediocre cricketers.

So by that criteria, that makes Emrit more mediocre.

So why we congratulating for?

Cant call Emrit an allrounder, he rarely ever scores runs.

Congrats tho, a hard working cricketer.
IMO tho, never really demanded a pick due to his performances, always steady, maybe if he was younger he'd be worth investing in but the dude is at the end of his career.

Emrit excited by Windies call-up

T&T all rounder Rayad Emrit has been called up by the West Indies selectors for the upcoming T20 internationals against New Zealand in that country later this month.

Emrit’s name was among those called for the three-match T20 series.

Speaking about his elevation to the West Indies team he said:”I am happy to be part of the West Indies T20 squad to New Zealand. It was definitely a long wait but I am excited about the new challenge. God is Great!”

Emrit has been called up for the first time in this format. A medium-fast bowler and powerful lower-order batsman, he played two ODIs for Windies a decade ago in India. Missing out though is fellow countryman, the dangerous Evin Lewis, who opted out for personal reasons.

I remember for two years, emrit was the highest wicket taker in the super 50. then the sa tour came and lloyd picked some dude with a head like a yam from windwards who was the highest wicket taker two seasons before. Emrit has gotten a really raw deal

BeatDball 2017-12-07 09:39:49 

Never impressed me much...but, I guess he has improved (tremendously?) in his allroundedness!

Andy u serious? Emrit was the leading wicket taker in the super 50 in 2013, and was in the top 3 for the next two years. Kenroy peters did it once and was put on a plane bound for south africa

Dats a pre retirement package?

You waving your red, white and black flag so hard dat you even have to resort to fake news.

Peters never made a WI ODI squad. He went to SA as a replacement for Roach on the test squad and his FC bowling stats are far superior to Emrit's.

Dere ODI stats are close but Emrit was the more effective bowler. Dat said, both situations appear to be a pre retirement package for hard working Regional players

navindesigns 2017-12-07 18:22:21 

Emrit has represented the WI already
