ustin Greaves is unavailable for selection due to an injury he sustained in the recently concluded CG United Super50 Cup
Nicholas Pooran is unavailable for selection as he prioritizes preparation for T20I format
Jason Holder is unavailable for selection as he prioritizes preparation for Test and T20I formats

This squad is a true reflection of what has utterly destroyed west indies cricket with zero strategy to rebuild from scratch. This is yet another 234 squad. Same old same old. England can actually white wash the west indies by playing sensible, patient cricket in all the ODIs.

In reply to anthonyp

A very good squad....... at last Dessie, Sammy are on right track....the aim is 2027 World Cup.... first thing first, all those selected can play 2027 World Cup, if fit & In form.....

Very disappointed.....a player, who was just a year ago was captain of ODI team....makes himself unavailable for only T-20..... With no big money ICC ODI tournament..... Pooran makes a professional decision to pigeon hole himself as T-20 player...

Although, did nothing worth in regional......but one of the very few......can play spin as well as fast....nice to see, Hety making himself available and not going Pooran 's way ...... posters going berserk about Hety selection....but conspicuously silent about Pooran that as it may, Hety made a very strong statement, by playing inconsequential series......playing for maroon, do matter...

Ought to have been selected.....but Sammy being coach.....New Zealand event still stands between Bravo, Sammy and selection... Bravo, would surely be part of Australia series.....when , Coley comes in...

Good selection, a proper batter in the middle....can play spin and fast....if he performs, could be in for Australia test series...also, with no Pooran, can provide backup for Hope, with gloves....

Mayers and Powell... Should have been dropped long, long back.....

Holder...good Holder concentrate for upcoming Australia tour.... pivotal in test....a genuine all rounder....just two years back was World no. 1 test all rounder.... should always bat at no.7 in test....ODI, is not his forte....nice he bypass it...

My team...XI

Chase/ Ottley.....if Ottley plays, he opens

Jumpstart 2023-11-21 10:55:47 

In reply to Wally-1

Honestly I think the problem is Sammy. I cannot see a player as great as Dessie not picking a quality player like Bravo. Sammy’s handlers when he was gifted the captaincy in 2010, purged the team of Senior bravo, Sarwan, Chris Gayle and Jerome Taylor so Sammy could have a team he can captain. So he’s used to operating with second string sides. And WI’s results only improved when those guys came back

TanteMerle 2023-11-21 11:03:12 

This is not a bad squad, given the circumstances.
Pooran, Greaves and Holder are unavailable so that's that.

I understand the selection of Ottley as a cover for opener;
Ottley did score heavily in the Super50, so a reward is not bad
I do not believe that he will be in any of the 11's
The excuse of Ottley as an opener is crap, as
Dowrich opened for Pride in CPL T20,
Alick Athanaze opens for Winwards
Hope is an opener (wid Hetty or Carty to stabalize middle)
King is obviously fit.

Forde deserves his selection
Competition for that spot is Terrance Hinds,
But age may have factored in Forde's selection over Hinds
I would not have argued if Hinds got the nod
and Forde was selected as some kind of reserve to grow with the squad
When Forde was nit selected for the A tour, I suspected he was in

Chase was a shoe-in despite nonsense talk here.
Carriah outperformed Walsh, so no argument
Place here for only one of them.

Hosein was very disappointing in the Super50,
He is regressing or out of form (but people here won't admit that)
Thomas is a great selection

Hetty is a great selection.

Roven Powell, what can I say.
Being honest, he is lucky if he retains the T20 cappo.
Is selceted in de T20 I suspect he will be on probation
Meaning it will be his last chance to prove he belongs (just my suspicion)
He is susceptible to any spin (looks as sea)
Despite his fairly-good leadership at T20, something is wrong with him
Don’t be surprised if Hope displaces him as T20 cappo (You heard is here first)
How a modern batsman can't learn to plan spin is beyond me.
Just do like Russell, who can teach him a thing or two about refine vooping.

On the Bravo issue.
I wrote here that despite his runs in the Super50,
his dot-balls percentage is a worry for International cricket.
His dependence on boundary balls will not work in ODI
Hingland would not give up the 2 to 3 bad balls like Super50 bowlers
With the likes of Hope, Carty and Hetty to play anchor, Bravo loses out
I like Bravo, but I agree with his non-selection.
His past issue with BIG-IDIOT robbed him of a few years (SAD)

In my opinion, the selectors did a fantastic job.
Very few questionable selections.

TanteMerle 2023-11-21 11:10:22 

In reply to Jumpstart

For once, I agree with you re Bravo past issues/non-issues.
However, I cannot blame the present selection for leaving him out.
His days are gone, and we were robbed of the best of Bravo
Thanks to the BIG IDIOT

Bravo lost years is the catalyst for his no longer being in consideration for international cricket.
Bravo is a victim of circumstances
he honestly do not deserve a pick anymore.
His style of ODI batting has not evolved, probable due to lost years.
ODI bowlers do not generally present 2 to 3 bad balls per over
Bravo scores depends on bad balls.
He is not working the good balls in gaps for singles
Wondies have Hope, Carty as middle order anchors.
Bravo will dropp anchor on anchor

May as well select Brafitt and Tage to play if they play Bravo
Score at the end of Wondies 50 overs.
Wondies 131 fa 1.
Braffit not out 58,
Tage run out for 49,
Bravo not out 25

I won't call them dellusional.

I just beieve that they are looking at total runs only from Super 50's
Not quality of bowling, dot-balls, of team strengths, or any other circumstances
Bravo's batting is not ODI standard.
He has not evolved with the game despite his experience.

BTW: so is most of the Wondies players, but age is against him.

He deserves his drop.

Just a refined vooper, who needs to learn to bat.
He is too rash and has shown on occasions that he has the talent.
He is far too inconsistent for me.

He also has to start back bowling more.

Maybe try to make team as a genuine allrounder.

lb 2023-11-21 11:48:08 

This team lacks intl experience in consistent performance. It is at best a relegation level squad and they will struggle against any genuine intl spin bowler or genuine seem bowler at pace w movement: ie this squad is at the level of Holland or lower and it is not the best that West Indies cricket can offer. Bravo's et al treatment is sim to that of Croft and others who played in an aparteid SA but for a much lesser offense.

PalsofMine 2023-11-21 12:13:26 

no, it is not an age thing. i see Tante's argument about the dot ball percentage. That would have validity if one then did not have to compare it with other players who do not even get a dot ball percentage because they simply do not last long enough at the crease. it is a travesty that a non performing Hety and Carty (both of whom I like) and even King who did not even play the super 50 and whose overall record is modest at ODIs can get picked before the leading scorer in the premium regional competition. Equally it is a travesty that Walsh, the leading bowler, did not get picked. i am a fan of Cariah's attitude in particular but Walsh outbowled him in this tournament. Even if you decided that you only want to have on leggie in the squad, Walsh is miles ahead of Mansingh and should have gone to SA. We need a transparent selection policy. If it is that over 30s are not to be picked, let us know it. If it is that once you are identified as a talent, you will always be picked, let us know that as well. If Bravo is not to be picked no matter how many runs he makes, let us know that as well. Overall, I think that the team is a good one and I assume that Ottley slotted in for Greaves who would have been first pick. It is just downright wrong that the two best players of the recent tournament have nothing to show for it.

West Indies fans are always talking about an individual SR and dot balls, never looking at the team's overall performance.
Virat Kohli may have had the lowest and most dot balls, of the first 4-5 Indian batsman, Cummings batting with Maxwell had an SR below 50, and Labuschagne was also low in the last match, batting with Head.

Everything I wrote is relevant to the condition.
Bravo for the last couple of years, seems to have put in the work, in order to make it back to the West Indies team, you cannot disregard consistency because of age, because we just don't have a number of consistently performing professional youngsters.
I used the word professional youngsters because most young international players are given the opportunity to make a living in cricket from an early age.

In ODIs....even before the big idiots issue....Bravo record in ODIs was not good.....he is not going to get better now.
After 117 innings he has an ave of 30 and an SR of 70 with 4 tons

By the same token, what does Ottley and to a lesser extent Dowrich offer that Bravo doesn't?

I've had a problem with Haynes selections for a while, taking Chase as the specialist spin option to Australia should have warranted his dismissal.

Nonsensical decisions.

Lubuchagne and Cummings particular innings were necessary for the games
Maxwell was going bezerk, and Head had the innings under control
with a less than 5 per over needed when Labuschagne entered.
Your mention of their strike rate in those two innings is disingenuous
and in my opinion seek to obfuscate the issue.

When a team is batting first on a good wicket,
I won't not expect or support a par 90 strike rate from the anchor.
I do not support a dependence on boundary balls,
as international bowlers generally do not give too much of those.

it is insulting to mention Kholi and Michael in the same quarters.
In all fairness, Kholi is an exceptional player,
thus a comparison is not really fair to Bravo.
better to compare him to lesser mortals.

I like and support Bravo,
but his missing years robbed him and Wondies or his best (IMO).
His batting has not evolved with the modern DOI.
i would like to see a player withdraw and he get selected
to see if the new and improved Bravo can cut it.
I mentioned in another tread here recently, that I had no issue with his selection
I also stated that i was concerned with his dot-ball percentage in a modern ODI

You forget Scammy the head coach and chief wind bag has a big say in team selection. If he wanted Heads Bravo he would be in line up. Talk dun!

Haynes give a good political excuse for leaving out Bravo, but I can understand that, he might be covering for Sammy who might not want Bravo on the team. However if they are really planning for the next WC, why did they select Ottley? I would have persisted with Mayers, he potentially could be more productive and it would be easier to justify his selection

Overthrow 2023-11-21 19:29:46 

Having a difficult time with some of the selections and players not selected. If age a consideration with an eye on next ODI World Cup why Ottley at 34, Dowrich at 32 and Chase at 31? A right handed offie required, would Kelvin Sinclair not be a better choice for the future?

In the context of WI cricket explain how/why Bravo's ODI record isn't good. Remember now ODI s/r in the game has upped significantly post 2014 and Bravo debuted quite some time prior so don't watch that only.

I’m convinced the good Doctor has lost his marbles. I listened to the part of his interview when he discussed DM Bravo non selection, if one is to take Dr Haynes seriously, then he should explain how it is Ottley at 34 yrs old is replacing an injured Greaves who was selected to open the batting.i say that to say, in the squad picked, is King, Hope, who has excelled as an opener and Athanze who has opened in white ball cricket.

Do we really need 4 batsmen capable of opening the batting in a 3 match series, I think not. If Haynes was looking for a stop gap. He should have picked the inform Bravo. We always make that mistake picking teams and leaving out the most in form batsman.
