    Haha, the bloke missed 3 drug tests in 1 year. If you don't think that's deliberate you're kidding yourself.

    The fact he may not be banned just sums up this sport.

    This threat to a turn to attack WI cricketers for random things. Oh well, I just hope the team wins and others can take delight in the BS.

    What the actual ****? Any other sport and he'd be serving a massive ban.

    To put it into perspective, Rio Ferdinand was banned for 8 months when he forgot to attend a drug test after training, despite later remembering and taking and passing a test taken the next day. And FIFA appealed against that suspension because they felt it was too lenient.

    To miss 3 Tests and not get banned is a joke. Cricket's administrators are not fit for purpose.

    Yeah it is bizarre, drugs in cricket seem to be of no concern to administrators.

    We've already seen from the Yasir Shah case that there's pretty much no consequences for taking drugs so this shouldn't come as a surprise. It's still ridiculous.

    I love the 'oh Jamaica have a pretty rigorous programme' defence when there's a bunch of Jamaican sprinters who have just been banned.

    I feel like Mark Nicholas' comments, whilst dim, have been misconstrued slightly. When he says 'short of brains', I don't think he is saying: the West Indies players are all stupid, therefore they are bad cricketers and cannot win the World Cup. What I think he is saying is that the West Indies adopt a certain brand of cricket, in which there is less of an element of over-analysis etc and nudging and nurdling to build innings. In the 2015 World Cup, England tried to play too smart, work the averages, look at the data, and it failed spectacularly. Whereas a team not thinking too much about and just blitzing it about, New Zealand, got all the way to the final.

    I think Nicholas is trying to make the same point, albeit poorly. I think he means that the West Indies do not employ employ certain methods and styles which he construes as 'smart', but instead just go out there, trust themselves and knock India out of the World Cup by chasing 193. Perhaps he should say savvy, or technical (not skill, but gameplan)? The West Indies have shown that you don't have to play 'smart' cricket to win games - just whack it about. It could be argued that the West Indies immediate approach after losing Gayle early in the semi was not smart, brainless slogging, but afterwards they started playing cricket that was neither 'smart' nor 'stupid', just...good.

    My two cents.

    Tbf I think Kohli is on something. His body fat percentage is too low for a cricketer.
