Looks like our best at the moment.

Selectors need to bring in Hetmyer for Hope.

I think Hetmyer should be in the team. Shai Hope needs to work on his game, I still believe he can come good. You don't average in the 50s in ODIs if you can't bat. Yes test cricket is different in that there are no field restrictions like in the aforementioned format, however it shows that the talent is there. I would also bring in Roach for Gabriel and maybe Permaul for Warrican.

I am no convinced about Permaul but I guess everyone deserves a chance

We have been saying that for years now. Time to move on permanently.

I wouldn't say permanently. Truth is he hasn't done enough to merit a place on the team at this point.

True, he may surprise us. No harm in giving him a chance. We already lost the series. I say this because we can't beat Sri Lanka in their country in tests.

Nonsense. Hetmyer should never have been left out of the test side.

CWI is trafficking in misinformation and non-information.
There is a whisper campaign with innuendo and lies.
The following questions should be posed to the President and Director of Cricket

1.Have Evin Lewis,Shimron Hetmyer and Nicholas Pooran indicated to you whether they are interested or not interested in playing test cricket directly verbally or in writing

2.Have any of the above 3 individuals refused to take part in the "Best vs Best" matches recently arranged by CWI.

3.Have any of the above 3 individuals been invited to participate in the recent "Best vs Best " matches

4.Have any or all of the above 3 individuals met the CWI fitness requirements.

5.Have Romario Shepherd,Sherfane Rutherford and Odean Smith met the CWI fitness requirements and if not have they been offered an opportunity to take the required fitness tests.

A responsible Board would be happy to answer clearly and concisely the above 5 questions rather than hiding behind the opacity that they have created.

i have no issues with what you posted.

here is my concern re the batsmen above. i say this becos our batting is more a problem than our bowling-

arent we making out these guys to be saviours? they aren't. at least one of them have played tests before

what if they fail?

arent we asking about the batting antecedent of others whilst fast tracking at least 2 of them who consistently have not played 4 day cricket in some time? and please respond by saying 4 day cricket hasnt been played in the region for sometime. even before that they didnt play

having said that, given the state of our batting, i dont see why these guys cant be given a chance. and that is it right there. no long talk. no silly justification.

Bonner like Chanderpaul bats like he values his wicket,
do does not throw it away just because he made a fifty, hopefully the others start to follow his example.

Some posters keep on insisting on continuous failure being rewarded. After such a long run, I wonder if some of our “frontline “ batters know which end of a bat to hold. Time for wholesale change, we maintain the same players and are getting the same results.

De Silva can bat too,and better than the lot ah the others who don't know zilch bout playing spin,who knows what Solozano may have done.The little I have seen of Solozano is that he has patience.BTW both Pooran and Hetmyer should be on that test side.

Tongue in cheek comment, Evin Lewis is one of the few batters we have who can handle short pitch bowling.
