No, check my posts....
I've stated that I'm not a Dowlin fan, but felt he deserved this series, based on his stats in Test cricket. He's had his run, and failed. But with Barath injured, there really wasn't much alternative to him as opener. Smith and Richards have not succeeded in the longer format of the game.
As for Samuels, his stats in test cricket aren't particularly great. He's been inconsistent with the bat, much like Bravo....
