Gilchrist's wicketkeeping was of an extremely high standard, and his batting far outweighs Healey's slight advantage with the gloves; you lose next to nothing behind the stumps, but nigh on 30 runs with the bat.
Walcott is far too good to leave out, and kept with distinction to Ramadhin and Valentine. Ideally I'd play him as a specialist bat and pick Dujon, but the other middle order options are far too strong.
Waite was extremely close to pushing Lindsay out, but once again I didn't feel like there was a huge difference in their wicketkeeping.
And I originally did pick Bari, however I wanted to play Fazal and Akram isn't a Test number 7. If I played MoYo in place of Fazal, I would select Bari and bat him at 10.
