Is Shai Hope the best
the ICC said so not long ago

Shai is way up there with the best .
It is baffling why he cannot transform his white ball batting unbelievable high scoring habits to red ball cricket .
Shai has the potential of the West Indian greats but has to prove his consistency and resilience!

Shai is better than all of our current test match middle order players
When a man can do this why wouldn't truth the process?
Windies are too result-oriented without the understanding of small but important steps that get one there

With a test average of 25?

Anyone who says that Shai is better than our frontline test batters doesn’t have a clue about cricket lol

there is an obvious reason why he is unable to transform his lickit success into test cricket…

I dont have the time to elaborate right now

Yes. He has been batting too high up the order and this impacted this game negatively
A deeper insight would reveal that he is better at No 5
Sufficient opportunity won't given to him at an established position

I've explained it here many times b4. In white ball cricket
A. There's no arc from keeper to point
b. He plays on "the up" looks lovely when he stands tall and drives but it causes the ball to travel long enough in the air for a catch in that arc
c.In white ball there are more deliveries aimed at containment than dismissal i.e. different lengths, lines and pace so his lbw and bowled frequency is less.

If CWI were doing their jobs they'd identify and rectify the tweaks needed to male Hope our permanent test #3 but alas!
