You can't move a player from Vice-Captaincy

to no retainer contract ... like that.

Roston Chase would always be in both

my test and 50 overs squads ...

He is one of our best Test Spinners

- taking 8 wickets in an England inning.

He is also a century scoring batsman.

Reflects badly on the selectors

I thought Courtney Browne and his selection panel were out in the left-field but this current selection panel takes the cake.

Those three guys mentioned have choices - forget about WI cricket and enroll at that College in Cave Hill and move on with your lives.

It is not the end of life if you don't get pick again.

Most of the players that were selected by Brown are now out of the team, Harper has brought in his guys and it has been working so far, it has been a surprise.

I don’t know the answer to this question which is why I’m asking

Does Harper determine who gets retainer contracts, who doesn’t, and for how much?

This is indeed a very troubling development. Chase is a very capable cricketer and very dedicated to his team.

This is not the year to look at contracts, especially since these players played for reduced wages, the last year.

For some time was thinking of dropping Blackwood to include Chase in the test team.But hell would freeze over before dat happen.Clueless Simmons and the rest DONT LIKE CHANGE.Chase could be then appointed vice cappo.

Short memories on display. This’ll scenario has played itself out at least three times in the last twenty years.

I too think that Chase should have been retained and I also think the BCA ridiculous position of opposing the current administration, despite the forward movement of WI cricket, should be blamed for the Bajan exclusions.

That very capable and dedicated cricketer averaged 17.40 with the bat and 41.91 with the ball in test cricket in the last year

His overall test average is 29.20 with the bat and 42.29 with the ball.

Is there a new definition for capable these days?

Dont know any other batsman in current test side averaging over 40 in tests do you?...the only clue he was dropped was a poor record on the last New Zealand tour.But they were all poor and got whacked.Its a mystery to me the way he has been treated. surprised

Where did I say he had to average 40?

He can’t even average 30!!!

So he had a good record on the tour of England? Or you “conveniently” omitting that?

How about when India played West Indies in the Caribbean before that when he averaged 18

No?

Test against Afghanistan when he played one innings and made 2 runs?

Even Ray Charles could see why Chase wasn’t offered a retainer contract. And Ray Charles was blind and he’s dead!

Sorry friend misread your post....HAHAHA enjoyed the Ray Charles joke...Wikipedia tells me Roystons test stats bat average 30.86 bowling 41.15...test 100s 5/50s 8....still think he should be in the team though as an allrounder giving an extra spinning option to Cornwall.All these fellows are pretty average.We have to be patient and persist with what potential we have.Apologies to you sir.

It has always been relative to the other members of the team, whose stats you did not include.

Let me get this right ..... on one hand you are blaming the BCA's opposition of the current administration for Chase's misfortune and yet on the other hand you are lauding the board for a forward movement in WI cricket.

If this forward moving board is going to use such petty politics to be vindictive towards a player who had no blame in the game then where is the forward thinking?

A reasoned position, Windies can't afford to pay based on sentiments! Players must learn that they are paid for performance!
