Motie vs Permaul

Why Johnson hardly bowling the youth?

Bowling stats for the match against Leewards

Permaul 37.1-98-6

Motie 15.3-34-6

Now they gonna drop him when Bishoo return.. I really hope he goes to another franchise soon cause they only killing his career in Guyana

Well he just can't go to another franchise … other franchises have to show interest in him first. And a we know, spinners are not a scarce commodity in the west indies

Motie needs to be patient. Leon J has nothing against him. He (Leon) is probably just more familiar with Permaul. With time, Motie will overtake Permaul, or Permaul will give way.

I believe we had a somewhat similar situation years ago with Rex Collymore and Sew Shivnarine. Shivnarine used the opportunity to develop his batting and became a decent all-rounder.

I do not think the two situations are comparable. Collymore was a far better bowler than Shivnarine and was 13 years older whereas Motie is only 6 years younger than Permaul and is comparable in skill as a left arm spinner.

Collymore was a far better bowler than Shivnarine

Probably true, but Collymore was in Sew Shivnarine's way, nevertheless. So Sew worked on his batting. Motie is a quite capable batsman, by the way.

Why you want Motie to wait when people like Warican and Pierre are making de WI team because dey are getting opportunities to play for their franchises. And neither has anything an him

I don't Motie to wait, but he seems to have no choice, but to wait.

Motie looks less effective than Permaul that's why I think Johnson trust Permaul more.
