DMBravo has been dissed by the selectors

Chrissy 2023-11-20 23:51:06 

This is unacceptable.

Dem pick ORS over Bravo - no words

Darren Bravo emerged as the top batting performer in the 2023 CG ... scoring 416 runs at 83.20 with a hundred and three fifties. He was also the winning captain.

Would allyuh post ORSs scores for the competition.
We deserve licks.

Dessie say Dey invest in Athanaze and Carty. Sounding very much like the Brownenosing former chairman of selectors that was before Roger harper

Prof, don't tell me you forget the Sammy and Bravo fiasco when Sammy was captain.
Now he is the coach.

I guess Bravo is not in Sammy’s long term plan! The run in perhaps not settled!

I am of the opinion, that once Darren Sammy is in a leadership position, Darren Bravo will not be part of his squad.
How can you select Hetty, who was playing bingo, and not Michael?

brians_da_best 2023-11-21 05:45:25 

Bravo is done. We need to look past him at youngsters who will be around for 2027. That’s the focus of this rebuilding

I have. for last year and half......advocating inclusion of Bravo in West Indies Test pivotal no.5. .....He should be in for Australia tour.... what went against Bravo in ODI

1. His relationship with Sammy
2. His age....almost 35 World Cup 2027 in October.... Bravo would be almost 39 years......highly improbable for next World Cup..
Would be disappointed, massively, if not selected for Australia tour...

Did I miss something, they overlooked Gary Sobers ? Just kidding, the selectors are crazy, to go to the WC automatically you'll have to win games. So why not play your strongest team then?

They’ll say they’re rebuilding for the 2025 world test championship

So you pick a coach who is not man enough to get along with all players? Island small balls?

lol from 2023-25 World series contains 6 tests at home and 7 away.... starting from June 2023.....Bravo sure a must pick with no excuses.....

PalsofMine 2023-11-21 12:01:32 

there have been many sad days in WI cricket but if this is a personal thing between certain persons who have power and Michael, who has shown himself to be the best batsman in the region this year, then this is probably the saddest of them all. At 35, a good batsman still has at least 3 years left in the tank. We will see what they say for the Oz series. Meanwhile, Michael, we are with you in this travesty.

Sammy is not in mine either - he can’t even pronounce squad members names.

And if for no other reason, for these 2 future youngsters, Bravo would have been the perfect compliment. Imagine, they will now have Hety as their senior, a person who is yet to grow up and lacks maturity.

West Indian batsmen who retired/dropped/stop playing at age 40
R.B.K. The Great Babu
Clive Hubert Lloyd
Onry Gayle
I am sure there is more sports fitness knowledge available now.
Bullshit excuse not to pick Bravo

Dw Bravo on Sports Max goes public for first time.

Players, Coaches, Selectors, Board members who are not performing should be all consistently dropped. Haynes has become an embarassment to West Indies cricket and should be dropped if his squad fails vs england.
