impossible to pick a trash side from barbados cricket from 1950-1990, even a second xi would beat mostly every cricket team today. Conversely, it is impossible to pick a good bajan side from 1990-present

In reply to SnoopDog

Raymond Reifer instead of Floyd big grin

How about this Bajan XI

1. Dale Richards
2. Kyle Hope
3. Raymond Reifer
4. Floyd Reifer (c)
5. Ryan Hinds
6. Jonathan Carter
7. Courtney Browne (wk)
8. Ashley Nurse
9. Jomel Warrican
10. Tino Best
11. Miguel Cummins

Backing this XI to beat de other one any day of de week big grin

I think Tino’s innings alone against England gets him off that ignominious list
‘Probably’ also unfair to Browne big grin

will concede 600 runs, take 5 wickets and get bowled out for 70

Dale richards was a talented guy from rural barbados that never really took his chances

t is impossible to pick a good bajan side from 1990-present

At least we cannot say that about a tit side, let compare the amount of time a post 1990 Bim team put licks on the tits.
