I wonder who will open our batting....Hope like to rotate the strike, Gayle doesn't...both are valuable in their own right...how do we fix that?

Why can't Gayle (and Russel) come in the last 20-25 overs???
Truth is , I would like to see Gayle & Russel at the crease together.


Hope & Lewis to open

....but we are not much worse than the other teams.

PAK and England are also making similar scores in their ODI series. I don't believe any team has been bowled out in either tournament.

So it would seem, based on these results, that the West Indies has to be prepared to score 370 - 400 on average each game to be competitive.

Rumshop

Imagine Gayle who batted his entire career as opener and at his swansong you throw something totally new at him ,at a critical time thereby losing all he gives by opening.

Russell could come at the death buy not too late.

In reply to InHindsight … that would be so if he was a Rookie. Russell bats as the situation dictates.

CHG is a professional and yes Natty, he sure ain't no rookie.

Thank goodness for Gayle, Lewis, and Russell. Hetty ain't far behind.

Hetty not far behind and you got Lewis in the top 3?

ODI's

Lewis averages 32 after 35 matches with a SR of 82 - 2 x 100's 3 x 50's
Hetty averages 40 after 25 matches with a SR of 110 - 4 x 100's 2 x 50's

looking at the all-round stats in the tournament, the batting against Bang was the problem, our bowlers had an economy. rate of less than 6 rpo.
Best economy rates

Most Runs
Highest strike rates
Highest averages

I was not expecting the West Indies to beat Bangladesh nor am I expecting them to make it out of the group stage in this WC. We have been a woeful ODI team for the last 20 years....
