Ambris hoping to give selectors something to think about

DUBLIN, Ire­land – Af­ter scor­ing his maid­en One Day In­ter­na­tion­al (ODI) cen­tu­ry, Sunil Am­bris is hop­ing to re­main on the minds of West In­dies se­lec­tors go­ing for­ward.

Am­bris stroked a su­perb 148 on Sat­ur­day at the top of the or­der to lead the Windies to a com­mand­ing five-wick­et vic­to­ry over Ire­land in the Tri-Na­tions Se­ries tour­na­ment, which al­so fea­tures Bangladesh.

The vis­i­tor’s sec­ond win in three out­ings has vir­tu­al­ly as­sured them of a spot in the fi­nal.

De­spite not be­ing named in the West In­dies’ 15-man squad for the ICC World Cup which bowls off at the end of the month, Am­bris said he be­lieves his his­tor­i­cal knock should keep him in good stead.

“That per­for­mance should ba­si­cal­ly keep my name there and let the se­lec­tors know that I’m still play­ing and I’m still scor­ing runs. As a pro­fes­sion­al crick­eter, I al­ways have to work hard so that’s what I’m go­ing to con­tin­ue do­ing,” Am­bris said.

Ambris needs to understand that Players from the Windward Islands
generally have a lot better than Players from other Countries in the
Region .

HE therefore has to be a lot better
than other Players in the Region .
This is simply one of the factors of
like in West Indies Cricket .

Ambris needs to examine the Cricket careers of Ian Neverson ; Garnet Niles ; Irvine Shillingford ; Michael Findlay ; and realize that
HE has to work 3 times as much as other Players to cement his place in
West Indies Cricket .

This is precisely why I have stated
that he needs to buy a Bowling machine and use it every freaking
day . It is that freaking Simple .

Players from other Countries have
Godfathers , Players in the Windward Islands aint got any Godfathers .
Ambris needs to look no further than
the Cricket Career of the "Invisible
Man " Kenroy Peters .

If you are to consider Ambris what position will you play him? As far as I see he isn't an opener.

He continues to be among the runs in time he will fit right back into the team, but after the WC

Correct. Once gayle goes, I'll turn Hope into the permanent opener, like Rohit for India. Unless you have Campbell and Lewis carrying their game to higher heights.
