    What happened to Adrian Barath and Darren Bravo? Surely you don't need two spinners in 20/20 cricket and could have done with an allrounder?

    I'm not sure if I rate Dwayne Smith as a cricketer, wasn'tit that long ago he wanted to try his luck in England?

    Leaving out Smith is so stupid. I didn't see the Zimbabwe series but he was arguably their best (him or Pollard) in the limited overs stuff in Australia.

    Smith is left out due to disciplinary isseus from all indications. Barath and Bravo to focus more on the longer forms. Only player who has a case is Lendl Simmonds.

    I think Fletcher's there as much for his keeper as his batting, rightly or wrongly.

    Cheers for the pm about this forum Criag!! , anyway apart from Hinds i don't mind this squad at all, there were rumours a week ago about Barath and Darren Bravo missing out and i can understand why, they are gonna be vital to us for years to come in the longer form of the game so i guess that's where their main focus should be, we've got two match winners in the side in Gayle and Pollard so hopefully they'll step up, looking back at the last t20 cup i don't know how on earth we made it to the semi final!!, along the way we played.

    Australia
    Sri-lanka
    South Africa
    India
    England


    And then we played Sri-lanka in the semi's again, what a shocking run of fixtures that was for us , hopefully we'll have a much easier run this time but i won't be holding my breath, also Andre Fletcher better get his damn act together, on his day he's as explosive as Pollard and he was in brilliant form for Leewards last season but in the Zimbabwe series he wasn't good at all, i guess the coaches see something in him that he hasn't managed to show the WI fans yet, i hope he grabs his chance now, i wouldn't bet on us winning the competition but man for man i think we're pretty solid and can give anyone a game.

    No room for Dave Mohammed? I was under the impression he was one of the better T20 bowlers in the West Indies.

    Also, Dave Mohammed is a CW cult hero and legend.

    Essential reason for inclusion IMO, this is more important than any dobblers he might have been thrown down at batsmen.

    For some reason, the WI selectors have been ignoring Dave Mohammed for years. I wonder if there are so-called disciplinary issues involved.

    In the longer form of the game, he's had trouble keeping his place in the Trinidad side, but he's practically a fixture in the 20/20 side for his country. A case could also be made for his countryman Samuel Badree in this format....

    Smith played irresponsibly for the WI against Zimbabwe, as did Pollard and Ramdin, and the trio were rightly criticised by Gayle and Gibson. But while Pollard and Ramdin put their heads down and answered the criticism with their performances, apparently Smith did not take the criticism well at all. Since Smith has been dropped, Gibson has made some remarks about Smith that seem to indicate that he's in the doghouse.

    As for his abilities in 20/20 cricket, we didn't see much of him in the IPL, as Deccan Chargers benched him for most of their matches. He only played two matches, I think. Hardly a ringing endorsement....

    I quite like the squad too. I'm not convinced that this is Hinds' favourite format, but given Simmons' indifferent form recently, and the runs Hinds scored for Jamaica this season, it's not an unreasonable selection.

    After this world 20/20 champs, I hope Shiv retires from this format to concentrate on the longer versions of the game. 20/20 cricket just doesn't suit him.

    Once again, kudos to the selectors for encouraging Barath and Darren Bravo to concentrate on the longer form of the game....

    Don't see what's so funny about that TBH.

    Dave is second only to AA in the reckoning.

    Chris Gayle (Captain)
    Andre Fletcher (WK)
    Shiv Chanderpaul
    Ramnaresh Sarwan
    Wavell Hinds
    Narsingh Deonarine
    Dwayne Bravo
    Kieron Pollard
    Jerome Taylor
    Nikita Miller/Sulieman Benn
    Kemar Roach

    I expect that to be the final 11 ... WI has 7 bowlers to bowl 20 overs, so that should give gayle alot of options and WI also have 8 batsmen, with taylor and any of the spinners with the potential to hit out. It's a pretty good team, should go far.
