OPENERS:
Gayle
Lewis


Middle Order:
Lil Bravo
Hety
Hope
Simmons

All rounders:
Holder
Big Bravo
Russell
Pollard

Spinners:
Narine
Nurse

Fast Bowlers
Roach
AlJoe
Gabriel

The middle order diversity leaves room to shuffle the order, for example, Hope and Simmons can open if needed.

I am also assuming Narine decides to return which means he is no longer fearful of his actions being discriminated against.

With the exception of Gabriel, the entire lower order can bat, so our batting is going to run deep, giving our bowlers cushion.

I will have the following in my reserve list for injuries

1. Campbell
2. Keemo Paaul
3. Oshane Thomas
4. Nic Pooran

I guarantee if selectors go as you suggest above, the team will struggle. Simple.


your squad is imbalanced anyway

I am getting nauseated with this insular crap.

Is that what Emir supported Skerrit for?

selfish agenda

I suspect that will be the squad. If it was up to me I would take out Thomas and replace him with Rovman Powell. I dont think Russell can play all 9 games and if we win matches early we can rest Gayle and Russell.

Is it smart to go into the tournament with players with chronic injuries? Remember it is 100 overs of play not 40.

My only issue with your team is that it is Trini-heavy.

Reminds me of the Bajan-heavy teams we've fielded of recent past.

Drapes, I did not even notice that. But reading some of the comments, I have to laugh, peeps accusing me of insular, cause they say I have 2 many trinis.

I find it amusing, as I select the best squad in my opinion.

Youngsters like Powell, Thomas, Allen not ready and their turn will come.

I can possibly entertain Keemo Paul sneaking in ahead of Gabriel, but that is about it.

This team can bring home the WC.

I said it on another thread and i'll say it again, anyone who thinks that Cotterell isn't going to the world cup either haven't been watching cricket lately, or doesn't know cricket.

I hear what you saying, but who will Cottrell replace among the fast/seam bowling options:

1. Al Joseph
2. Roach.
3. Gabriel


Remember Cottrell is competing for a fast/seam bowler specialist spot

Cottrell is one of the first names penciled in on the bowling attack

after the last series it would be criminal if he doesnt play

every team in the world wants a left arm pacer and we have a pretty good one in cottrell

he plays ahead of alzari

I disagree but do respect your opinion. Look, it is a hard call and I choose AlJoe over Cottrell because in the English summer, AlJoe will be more effective.
