POSSIBLE WORLD CUP SQUAD OF 15

 
Emir 2019-04-15 19:55:21 

OPENERS:
Gayle
Lewis


Middle Order:
Lil Bravo
Hety
Hope
Simmons

All rounders:
Holder
Big Bravo
Russell
Pollard

Spinners:
Narine
Nurse

Fast Bowlers
Roach
AlJoe
Gabriel

The middle order diversity leaves room to shuffle the order, for example, Hope and Simmons can open if needed.

I am also assuming Narine decides to return which means he is no longer fearful of his actions being discriminated against.

With the exception of Gabriel, the entire lower order can bat, so our batting is going to run deep, giving our bowlers cushion.

I will have the following in my reserve list for injuries

1. Campbell
2. Keemo Paaul
3. Oshane Thomas
4. Nic Pooran

 
natty_forever 2019-04-15 20:09:11 

Narine going nowhere. Get over it.

 
Str8_Drive 2019-04-15 20:13:00 

will Aljo be ready for the world cup after his IPL injury ?

I guarantee if selectors go as you suggest above, the team will struggle. Simple.


your squad is imbalanced anyway

 
natty_forever 2019-04-15 20:14:43 

In reply to Str8_Drive … doubtful.

 
natty_forever 2019-04-15 20:15:32 

In reply to InHindsight … he does not care if they have not been performing, guess he feels all will come good WC time.

I am getting nauseated with this insular crap.

Is that what Emir supported Skerrit for?

selfish agenda

 
natty_forever 2019-04-15 20:21:31 

In reply to InHindsight … Emir is Skerrit.

I suspect that will be the squad. If it was up to me I would take out Thomas and replace him with Rovman Powell. I dont think Russell can play all 9 games and if we win matches early we can rest Gayle and Russell.

 
FuzzyWuzzy 2019-04-15 22:54:51 

In reply to BajShotta

Is it smart to go into the tournament with players with chronic injuries? Remember it is 100 overs of play not 40.

 
Drapsey 2019-04-15 23:12:33 

In reply to Emir

My only issue with your team is that it is Trini-heavy.

Reminds me of the Bajan-heavy teams we've fielded of recent past.

 
Emir 2019-04-16 00:36:12 

In reply to Drapsey

Drapes, I did not even notice that. But reading some of the comments, I have to laugh, peeps accusing me of insular, cause they say I have 2 many trinis.

I find it amusing, as I select the best squad in my opinion.

Youngsters like Powell, Thomas, Allen not ready and their turn will come.

I can possibly entertain Keemo Paul sneaking in ahead of Gabriel, but that is about it.

This team can bring home the WC.

Lewis, Simmons and Narine are not going to make it.

In reply to Emir

I said it on another thread and i'll say it again, anyone who thinks that Cotterell isn't going to the world cup either haven't been watching cricket lately, or doesn't know cricket.

 
Emir 2019-04-16 15:39:13 

In reply to jen

I hear what you saying, but who will Cottrell replace among the fast/seam bowling options:

1. Al Joseph
2. Roach.
3. Gabriel


Remember Cottrell is competing for a fast/seam bowler specialist spot

 
conman 2019-04-16 15:41:55 

In reply to Emir

Cottrell is one of the first names penciled in on the bowling attack

after the last series it would be criminal if he doesnt play

every team in the world wants a left arm pacer and we have a pretty good one in cottrell

he plays ahead of alzari

 
InHindsight 2019-04-16 16:22:39 

Cottrell plays. But Emir wouldn't know. Smh

 
Emir 2019-04-16 16:40:27 

In reply to conman

he plays ahead of alzari


I disagree but do respect your opinion. Look, it is a hard call and I choose AlJoe over Cottrell because in the English summer, AlJoe will be more effective.

You will be seriously disappointed with the WC team, in this case. lol lol lol

Good squad but is there no place for AlJo?

How so?

 
ThisIsMyName 2019-04-17 02:11:20 

In reply to Oilah

I fear that the injury that just occurred in the IPL will more than likely keep him out of the 15. It seems pretty serious. If not, I'd be okay with him replacing Gabriel in the 15. Their List A and ODI stats are pretty similar. Plus AlJo is a much better fielder and batsman than Shannon.

 
Oilah 2019-04-17 02:37:46 

In reply to ThisIsMyName

cool

 
Emir 2019-04-17 12:46:02 

In reply to InHindsight

Why do you pick Cottrell over Gabriel?

 
Headley 2019-04-17 13:49:51 

Drapes, I did not even notice that. But reading some of the comments, I have to laugh, peeps accusing me of insular, cause they say I have 2 many trinis.


That is why we have at least 3 selectors because a man could pick 11 from Trinidad and not realise it. lol lol lol

 
Emir 2019-04-19 02:37:59 

In reply to Headley

But there are no quota system. You pick the best 15 and it matters not if they are all St Vincent.

 
Scar 2019-04-19 03:43:49 

Keemo Paul better get oicked. Moving that ball in and off the pitch a f in the air will be key in English conditions. After watching him do so in less swing friendly conditions at home imagine in Pommieland. Plus he is no slouch with the bat

 
Emir 2019-04-24 12:49:33 

OKay folks we'll know in a few more hours if the selectors go along with my team.
