Ambris hoping to give selectors something to think about

DUBLIN, Ire­land – Af­ter scor­ing his maid­en One Day In­ter­na­tion­al (ODI) cen­tu­ry, Sunil Am­bris is hop­ing to re­main on the minds of West In­dies se­lec­tors go­ing for­ward.

Am­bris stroked a su­perb 148 on Sat­ur­day at the top of the or­der to lead the Windies to a com­mand­ing five-wick­et vic­to­ry over Ire­land in the Tri-Na­tions Se­ries tour­na­ment, which al­so fea­tures Bangladesh.

The vis­i­tor’s sec­ond win in three out­ings has vir­tu­al­ly as­sured them of a spot in the fi­nal.

De­spite not be­ing named in the West In­dies’ 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup which bowls off at the end of the month, Am­bris said he be­lieves his his­tor­i­cal knock should keep him in good stead.

“That per­for­mance should ba­si­cal­ly keep my name there and let the se­lec­tors know that I’m still play­ing and I’m still scor­ing runs. As a pro­fes­sion­al crick­eter, I al­ways have to work hard so that’s what I’m go­ing to con­tin­ue do­ing,” Am­bris said.

Ambris needs to understand that Players from the Windward Islands
generally have a lot better than Players from other Countries in the
Region .

HE therefore has to be a lot better
than other Players in the Region .
This is simply one of the factors of
like in West Indies Cricket .

Ambris needs to examine the Cricket careers of Ian Neverson ; Garnet Niles ; Irvine Shillingford ; Michael Findlay ; and realize that
HE has to work 3 times as much as other Players to cement his place in
West Indies Cricket .

This is precisely why I have stated
that he needs to buy a Bowling machine and use it every freaking
day . It is that freaking Simple .

Players from other Countries have
Godfathers , Players in the Windward Islands aint got any Godfathers .
Ambris needs to look no further than
the Cricket Career of the "Invisible
Man " Kenroy Peters .

Dukes will match whatever Point and I music put up to buy Ambris a bowling Machine.

If you are to consider Ambris what position will you play him? As far as I see he isn't an opener.

He continues to be among the runs in time he will fit right back into the team, but after the WC

I would bat Ambris at 4 or 5

Correct. Once gayle goes, I'll turn Hope into the permanent opener, like Rohit for India. Unless you have Campbell and Lewis carrying their game to higher heights.
