This is not a bad squad, given the circumstances.
Pooran, Greaves and Holder are unavailable so that's that.
I understand the selection of Ottley as a cover for opener;
Ottley did score heavily in the Super50, so a reward is not bad
I do not believe that he will be in any of the 11's
The excuse of Ottley as an opener is crap, as
Dowrich opened for Pride in CPL T20,
Alick Athanaze opens for Winwards
Hope is an opener (wid Hetty or Carty to stabalize middle)
King is obviously fit.
Forde deserves his selection
Competition for that spot is Terrance Hinds,
But age may have factored in Forde's selection over Hinds
I would not have argued if Hinds got the nod
and Forde was selected as some kind of reserve to grow with the squad
When Forde was nit selected for the A tour, I suspected he was in
Chase was a shoe-in despite nonsense talk here.
Carriah outperformed Walsh, so no argument
Place here for only one of them.
Hosein was very disappointing in the Super50,
He is regressing or out of form (but people here won't admit that)
Thomas is a great selection
Hetty is a great selection.
Roven Powell, what can I say.
Being honest, he is lucky if he retains the T20 cappo.
Is selceted in de T20 I suspect he will be on probation
Meaning it will be his last chance to prove he belongs (just my suspicion)
He is susceptible to any spin (looks as sea)
Despite his fairly-good leadership at T20, something is wrong with him
Don’t be surprised if Hope displaces him as T20 cappo (You heard is here first)
How a modern batsman can't learn to plan spin is beyond me.
Just do like Russell, who can teach him a thing or two about refine vooping.
On the Bravo issue.
I wrote here that despite his runs in the Super50,
his dot-balls percentage is a worry for International cricket.
His dependence on boundary balls will not work in ODI
Hingland would not give up the 2 to 3 bad balls like Super50 bowlers
With the likes of Hope, Carty and Hetty to play anchor, Bravo loses out
I like Bravo, but I agree with his non-selection.
His past issue with BIG-IDIOT robbed him of a few years (SAD)
In my opinion, the selectors did a fantastic job.
Very few questionable selections.
