A team with Mayers & Holder....weaken the top order....to my mind solution is either of them should bat in top 5.....Mayers did bat at No.4.....failed ....then pushed back to no.6.....in test cricket to be successful team....pure batsman or bowler or genuine all rounder........Mayers did very well against Bangladesh as batsman..... subsequent performance as batsman is abysmal....as bowler, hardly bowled in this test....

In reply to sudden

that is not sufficient reason to drop a player with the start he had

In reply to velo

that is a good problem to solve

The sub continental bully you talking about? Let's see how he does the next time the pace gets hot.

Which WI batsman handles pace?

 
Larr Pullo 2021-11-23 13:46:35 

In reply to sudden

He and Shy Hope are standouts at how bad they are at handling pace. Imagine Shy came in as a concussion sub for an opener and they sent up Blackwood of all people to open and let Shy bat at 4. Is someone protecting him? He better step up to the plate or get gone from the team!!!

man stop talking shoite.

they all have problems with pace.

just the other day Tarnish Silva was running and ducking, the openers were skipping, Blackwood was staying outside leg and the others were flinging bat hoping to hit something before they get hit

 
Larr Pullo 2021-11-23 13:59:41

I saw Blackwood score a ton in NZ when none of them could come to terms with the pace and aggression. Are you sure you talking about the same Blackwood?

In reply to Larr Pullo

did he get in line? i said he stayed outside leg. may be the correct place to be or rather effective when the pace hot

Don't know what game you were watching, or your memory has dimmed somewhat with the passage of time? I remember him hooking wagner onto the grassy bank when Wagner got bouncer happy with him...Could he have done that staying legside of the ball?

 
sudden 2021-11-23 14:14:44 

In reply to Larr Pullo

ok. maybe me. i dont think i watched that game. i am talking more about recently.

in any case in terms of fast bowling he is the cleanest of the dirty shirts and not by much. in the land of the immobile the one foot man is kning

 
carl0002 2021-11-23 14:34:57 

Pace?.. That means WI batsmen fraid a both pace and cant bat spin. God help them play cricket.
shock

 
cricketfreak 2021-11-23 14:44:00 

That 40 will ensure he stayed on west indies for another 5 years

Windiesfan78 2021-11-23 17:04:10 

How many batsmen scored a double on debut? He is part of an elite list. That is for the haters to chew on.

 
dayne 2021-11-23 17:20:11 

Meyers is like Blackwood, they have iffy techniques, but they score runs relatively quickly, so by the time the bowlers get them out they already have a thirty or forty.

 
Larr Pullo 2021-11-23 17:23:22 

In reply to dayne

thirty or forty.


And you think 30's and 40's work for test cricket?

I had no idea West Indies Cricket Selectors were posting on this MB lol

 
sudden 2021-11-23 17:58:47 

In reply to cricketfreak

i think Mayers should be dropped next match now that he has scored 40 or thereabouts

 
dayne 2021-11-23 18:11:49 

In reply to Larr Pullo

Thirties and forties are not sufficient for Test cricket, but if more batsmen score forties and one goes on to make century, the WI will find themselves in better positions, because their bowling is decent.

 
Windiesfan78 2021-11-23 18:57:08 

So basically we just need a team of lethal allrounders that can score at least 40 runs each! big grin

 
imusic 2021-11-23 19:01:03 

West Indies test team

Where 40 is the new century
