My question is....who will be available or make themselves available

WHO WILL SELECT THE TEAM? If it's Brung the the best team will not be selected...it will be a bajan team smile

In my view Daren Sammy should captain the WI team or play for the world XI.

What would also be funny is if Sammy, Narine, Bravo plays for the World XI

I'm sure out of not wanting to look like A-holes DD and Co. will try to pick dem boys

 
Narper 2018-02-13 16:59:54 

Kemo Paul and Shimron Hetmyer MUST get a look in

Outside of Evin Lewis and Andre Russell, both proven INTERNATIONAL T20 performers AND WORLD CUP WINNERS who are head and shoulders way better players than Paul and Hetmeyer, the team I posted is the team that represented West Indies in their last T20 series against New Zealand

Is dat reason enough to be selected?

AND.....a WI team which got cut ass by NZ...lost 2-0 and would have lost the 3rd but for rain intervention....how many of them made the cut to the IPL 2018?

Paul is 19 and Hetmyer is 21....time to blood new payers...all I am calling for is a look in...and yes...they have won a world cup too

If Shai Hope is in why not Hetmyer?

Fletcher?
Carlos Brathwaite?
Rovman Powell?
Nurse?

Anyone thinking of going to this?

I might.

Regardless of the team it sounds like a good cause.

Wonderful Cause.If as stated it will be given International status with
SKY being the broadcaster,I would imagine that the team will be made up
of the well known T20 stars. Would like to see Sammy at the helm.

And the other team made up of players from all other countries.
It could be a huge occasion. Hope it will be very successful dollars wise.

This is a fundraiser. So it is a festival match. People will pay to see the stars of T20 cricket. Not unknowns.

Even though this is a charity-match of sorts, it's counted as a T20I? Weird.

£50 for covered stands seat, £30-£40 for some uncovered seats...hmmm.

I might wait until a few days before, when I see the weather report, before buying a ticket.

It can be a bit wet at the end of May, and a bit chilly too, after 6pm!
