    Too bad they can't have Dwayne Smith. Plus Rampaul should have been picked.

    May possibly cause some danger the West Indies. So much dependence on Chris Gayle to fire. One of the more dangerous T20 batsman in the game, and really the only West Indian who can turn a 120-130 score into a 170-180.

    Very useful bowling attack for this format. Fidel Edwards bowled well in the IPL and has the style of game to blast through a top order. Jerome Taylor is threatening to take his game to the next level. Then the Windies will probably have numerous options such as Bravo, Sammy, Pollard and Gayle. Possibly a bowler light, another paceman would have given more balance. As mentioned Ravi Rampaul would have been a good pick.

    Gayle the key. Young kids need to give some support, can't leave it to the veterans. Potential is there to cause an upset.

    Probably should've picked an aggressive keeper instead of Ramdin. Baugh seems a good candidate, as does Fletcher who averaged 50+ in the Stanford series.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Mohammed was unavailable for most of the FC season and the selectors probably felt they didn't want him without top class practice.

    Dave could have been on a twelve month drinking sabbaticcal( instead of building his house and dominating local cricket) and he still would have been the best spinning option available.

    That sucks for the Windies!

    I know most here hate him, but he'd add so much to this side as a sole 20/20 batsman IMO.

    Ramdin played well for Trinidad in the domestic 20/20 competition, with both the bat and the gloves....

    I think he's a better gloveman than Fletcher, who should probably concentrate on his batting right now.
