The selectors had Carlos on probation for the T20i series that just concluded.

Roven Powell will also be the T20i captain in this series tour.

Carlos should consider himself lucky to be playing for the WI after the T20i world cup. His stats do not show he has progressed one iota.

This is like comedy central that Samuels is still playing windies cricket. Since he got hit, he hangs on the back foot and is very reluctant against pace. And this is coming from one of his biggest fans. He is well past his sell date.

I fully endorse your sentiments. These selectors are a pack of jokers!!

As much as I love(d) to see Marlon Samuels bat, at this point, the only place he should be seen in West Indies colors is on Youtube.

Make Runs Or Make Way- No Runs, No Excuses!!

Some Guys Have All the Luck.

Right now, sad to say, Samuels, seems to be one of them. At present he is existing more more luck than on performance.

NEXT!!!!

Well it is now known why the Selectors took their time in releasing their selection, they felt it would be vigorously questioned. It might have been a better idea to give the captaincy to someone who have done it before at the international level.

This selection was done right after the Indian ODI series...at that time Chase had performed well in the Test series and he was suggested for ODIS.

Carlos selection was a result of the Super 50s but where is Akeem Jordan or Ottley? Obviously Chase's spin options trumps them although I disagree.

Reifer also did very well in the Super 50s as well as McCarthy,Campbell and Blackwood...any of them could have replaced Samuels but obviously they are still looking at Marlon's experience.

That actually makes me think..perhaps they wanted to make sure everybody they selected would not bail out at the last minute...maybe they had to wait until someone was willing to accept the captaincy, maybe they offered it to others first..who knows, but something rotten in the state of Denmark

Samuels, most of the times, rises to the occasion when the chips are down. He is the type of batsman I would place my bet on in crunch times, which is now, especially against this Bangladesh spin attack.

BTW, allyuh are complaining about not enough experienced players; Samuels has stuck around to do his part, and allyuh still cussing him.

First of all, i very rarely post. The only thing i have complained about was the exclusion of Hetty from the setup. My feeling was, and i stated it on numerous occasions was that we did not have enough batting talent in the region to keep him glued to the bench. He is not without flaws, but he is not going to learn from watching Paint block half volleys. Am curious, when was the last time Samuels played a meaningful innings for the windies. I would have remembered, because he has been my favorite windies batsman to watch when on song...

The Selectors it seem selected the players who made themselves available, but for the W/C the team would be different, However I would have given the captaincy to Carlos B or K Powell, as both are more experience at it.

Rovman is a product of CCC, that automatically qualifies him for captaincy/leadership.

And while at it, remember CCC's Bajan connection.

I think the selectors are signalling that Powell & Brathwaite are keeping the places of Gayle & Holder warm.

Powell is more likely to make the World Cup team.

HEADLINE: Bravo and Braithwaite return to ODI Squad

One would've expected more positive reaction to such a headlined thread.

The hearty welcome back to our hero, Bravo, for instance.

Instead all we can hear is continued bickering over Rovman's appointment as interim captain.

Interim, get it?
