Rovman

Ok I am a massive fan and might be a bit biased here

Rovman, whether he finishes here or fails to finish has shown me this CPL that he has the temperament for a chase

I hope them coaches help him with the leg spin

So is he our WC ‘finisher’

I was one of his biggest critic. So much potential but wasn't delivering. I see a man who is putting in a lot of work on his game.

Not far-fetched if PoorAnn continue with his slackness

Rovman for cappo.

I called for him here...before they appointed Nicky Poo

Powell is in fact getting batter as a batsman in this format...he is obviously working hard at his game.

There are so many of our players who are not improving and screwing up the same way over and over.

I believe Poo will give up the cappoship after the WC

I second this. I told Chrissy that I was impressed with Rovman Powell in the previous t20 match against the Royals. He is a quiet leader but leads from the front.

Big Improvement. Most improved player award goes to RP.

Kyle Mayers is in the lead with that MIP

Kyle vying for MVP

It is amazing how people on this board operate.One minute a guy is great and next minute he is a waste.There is no proper assessment of a player by looking at his weaknesses and the strength of his opponents.Powell and Mayers are doing great but maybe we should withhold judgement until after the World Cup when we see how everyone does in a much more challenging environment.Remember last year in the CPL,Roston Chase was the new Sobers and then what took place?

The mind boggling thing is you guys have extremely short memories and keep doing the same things over and over.

We have the eye Dukes. We can see suttle changes in their approac. Chase was handled poorly and thus lost confidence.

Nuff examples

Last season, it was Pollard denying Odean Smith his rightful place in IPL

Today….Odean Smtih on this board is a waste pick

Pooran was thought of highly on this board. Some even calling for him to be considered for test cricket.

Today….it’s PooPoo, he’s a shot captain, and some questioning why he in the team.

The only player that has positive fan consistency is Hety. And he yet to do anything of significance in the international T20 arena.

Watch out current fallouts of the day Kyle Mayers and Rovman Powell

Chase way over achieved early in his career

What is your evidence that he was handled poorly? HIS performances?

He certainly can’t blame lack of opportunity. What was it about his “handling” was poorly done?

Specifics will be appreciated.

Any objective observer should be able to see significant improvement in Odean Smith's bowling as evidenced by him bowling 4 overs in the death against New Zealand for 28 runs and 3 wickets

Pooran was thought of highly on this board. Some even calling for him to be considered for test cricket.

Pooran is a naturally gifted six hitter.He and Evan Lewis hit sixes like it is drinking water.I have never seen Pooran as a leader and nothing so far has disabused me of that impression.He tends to be REACTIVE rather than PROACTIVE.

The only player that has positive fan consistency is Hety. And he yet to do anything of significance in the international T20 arena.


If that was a reference to me it is inaccurate.I think that Brandon King will be the best batsman in the team sooner or later.
I have criticized both Brandon King and Hetmyer.The former for not trying to read wrist spinners from their hand positions and the latter for his cavalier approach to his fitness.

Lolololol!!!

It’s hilarious seeing you squirm tying to show “objectivity” where Hety is concerned.

Brandon King over your beloved Hety???

You cyah even lie properly lol

Damn.... when will it be accepted that our players are bits and pieces... miss and hits ...
None .. I repeat is consistently good .. but a whole bunch of them are consistently bad ..
Rovman plays globally and he will tear up amateurish bowling attacks... and then we have solid evidence that he is INCAPABLE of making double figures when the big boys show up ..
And that goes for Pooran Hetty King and the rest ..
There is no finesse to their game ... oh well..

Two years ago Brandon King donated to a charity in Guyana and I told someone he is close to, that I look forward to being at Lords to witness him score a test century against England. Remember Brandon King idolizes Ronnie Sarwan even wearing the same number (53) as Sars did.

There is so much you do not know.

But bro. You honestly trying to get the message board to believe that YOU BELIEVE that Brandon King is/will be better than Hety? lol

People on this message board who think they know me, would be shocked if they knew the real person. I will leave it at that.

He needs to work on his bowling!!!
If he can give us two overs for 10-16 runs, that would be a huge plus!!!
