Why Rifer playing and not Carlos

Realsteel 2019-05-13 13:18:58 

I thought this was worldcup preparation and Carlos is a member of the squad and not rifer. Probably this is the end of carlos. Something seriously wrong here

Why Carter playing and not Lewis? Why Chase playing and not Pooran?

none of them are members of the squad........Nobody knew when their respective franchises would be knocked out of the ipl so they weren't picked. Also apparently the bcci does not like countries pulling their players from the tournament early. Only england and australia were able to do it because they are financially well off. The CSA president wanted some of the SA players home early for the CWC and was virtually threatened

How Shakib get away? And Rabada?

In reply to FuzzyWuzzy

Rabada is supposed to be injured. He left de IPL early as a result of back problems. De Kok and Faf featured in de finals.

Bangladesh most likely only gave Shakib a partial NOC

Him representing the Muddies.

Carlos has been in Ireland since Saturday, so he could have played. If Carlos could be there then so could all the other IPL players barring Lewis.

The WICB management should have planned for that contingency. Clearly, this tournament is not being used as a warm up for the World cup.

natty_forever 2019-05-13 19:35:24 

In reply to voiceofreason … I am saying they have seen him and would like now to take a look at the other fellow.

natty_forever 2019-05-13 19:36:49 

In reply to mikesiva … Why not? We working on strategy and looking at other players. The side regardless of what Jimmy says can be adjusted by May 23.

The World Cup is within weeks so would it not be better getting the 15 acclimatized and match ready? Again what has Carlos done? since you know what he can do. He averages 14.4 with the bat with a s/r of 83.86. His bowla ave is 43.61 shock

That was T20I Final, this is ODI we talking.

mikesiva 2019-05-14 13:58:18 

In reply to natty_forever

I would think that this ODI series provides our players with the opportunity to adapt to conditions in this part of the world. But the only batsmen in the World Cup squad who are getting batting practice are Bravo, Hope and Holder. How much rest do the IPL players need?

The England IPL players are currently playing an ODI series against Pakistan. Moeen, Stokes and Bairstow are getting used to playing in English conditions once more in today's match. Carlos is currently in Ireland, so he could be doing the same.

Where are the other IPL players? Did they follow suit and travel to Ireland? Or are they back in the Caribbean?

Ideally, based on what I've seen of the matches in Ireland, I'd like to see Ambris and Campbell coming in for Allen and Bravo. Will that happen? I'm not confident that it will....

So, we may go into our only two practice matches in Bristol with the following players having played their last matches in India - Gayle, Lewis, Pooran, Thomas, Hetmyer and Russell. That doesn't sound like sensible planning to me.

Mike, do players have to be in the original 15 member Tri-Nation squad to play in this series?
