Fair enough natty, he took 5 wickets in total. I want to give Permaul a chance because he may be able to extract more turn out of the pitch. We need a fast bowler so it can't be both Warrican and Permaul. Chase and Cornwall retain their places as allrounders. Brathwaite can also bowl spin. Permaul adds something different to a match we will most likely lose anyway. Oh, I would like Roach to replace Gabriel.

Bonner has lots of patience, Junior Bennett spoke about that some time back. Probably not a lot of stroke play but will wait for his target.

nope i keep it real.

you all can project and read the future of these WI modern day batsmen before they face proper bowling all unnuh want only to go onto the next lamb for the slaughter after they are found wanting.

it has done us no good so far.

i am all for giving all a chance and see what they can do. if they perform consistently then i will sing their praises.

until then i wait.

This approach appears to bring success, and maybe we should indefinitely replicate.

Bonner made an 11-ball 1-run in the 1st innings and nobody noticed. At least, if they did, they chose not to berate him. With that he has lived to receive accolades for his 2nd innings performance. Some even ready to advocate his elevation to 'captainhood'.

Let's keep it going, guys!

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


I am not saying any such thing.What I am saying is that we must put our best team on the field at all times.Whether they win or lose is not the point.


what if they fail?

Then we cuss them.Our current peeps are failing quite spectacularly so it would not be anything new.
If I say we should play a guy who is going to make 27 and you keep wanting to play a guy who is going to make 13 because the other guy making 27 is not going to change the results then I have a problem with that type of thinking.

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


How can CWI talk about playing 4 day cricket when they have repeatedly scheduled OFFICIAL CWI WHITE BALL CRICKET DURING OUR DOMESTIC FIRST CLASS SEASON which effectively DEVALUED OUR DOMESTIC COMPETITION.

We're all in agreement here, Dukes. The prevailing issue is determining the 'best team' considering the subjectivity.

For instance, you would be satisfied that a best team is picked as long as Hetty is part thereof. Contrast that to FuzzyWuzzy who would be equally satisfied if Shai Hope is in, to say nothing of Jumpy.

Here is a newsflash.There is wide consensus as to who would constitute the best team.HOWEVER some feel that DISCIPLINE is more important.Now the DISCIPLINE THING is very subjective.

If the team makes 290 and 230 instead of 230 and 160 they would still lose so are you using that as an excuse for the team that makes 230 and 160?

I see you are setting up your defense early.

I said no such thing.

But losing is losing, isn’t it?

In the land of the blind...

"Bosman the whole of town aint have no toilets...no toliets for a man to shit..."

The whole West Indies aint have no batsmen and only one-half of a bowler.

We are doomed with no end in sight. Skeritt is playing ringa, ringa roses and nursing the ego of a universe don.

Yuh lucky, Pat Rousseau dead n gone without Cameron answering any of his questions especially the one as to whether or not he was taking a salary as Prez. Different men same power dynamics. I would like to hear some specifics regarding Bonner can bat. Separate and apart from time at the crease. I have some thoughts but would like to hear what I may not have considered.

Here is a data interpretation question for you.

How is your statement that everybody is in agreement that we should always put our best team on the field compatible with giving aging superstars final send off games?

The problem here, management is more interested in process rather than outcome!

It's a Caribbean thing, no "killer" instinct in a competitive world!

Here comes the "subjectivity" again.

My interest in seeing the continued inclusion of the UB in any WI team is for the continued relevance of Chrissy's patented "Mad dem, Crampy!". He, the UB, has been 'madding' them for 21 years and could(/should) continue doing so 'just because'.

And I'm not even a fan of the UB.

I've only watched Gayle bat (live) once. That was just after he scored his first triple ton, I saw him play against the Windwards at Alpart. He scored some seventy odd runs, while Devon Smith scored a ton for the opposition. Devon looked in every way to be the more accomplished batsman.
