    South African delight due Lara-less Windies

    The West Indies squad to face South Africa in the 1st Test:

    Wavell Hinds, Devon Smith, Donavon Pagon, Daren Ganga, Shivnarine Chanderpaul (capt), Narsingh Deonarine, Ryan Hinds, Courtney Browne (wk, vice-capt), Corey Collymore, Pedro Collins, Dwight Washington, Daren Powell, Jerome Taylor, Reon King.

    I hate to say it, but odds on for an innings defeat.

    Apparently Lara did the stand-up thing and responded to his contract offer by posing that the other 6 get picked too. The WICB didn't like the response. No Lara. Bye bye West Indies cricket.

    Expected XI:

    WW Hinds
    DS Smith
    D Ganga
    S Chanderpaul (C)
    NO Deonarine
    RO Hinds
    CO Browne (wk)
    DB Powell
    PT Collins
    JE Taylor
    CD Collymore

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Hmmm...really weak West Indian side. With the likes of Pagon, Deonarine, Washington and Darren Powell (any relation to Ricardo?) in the squad, the inexperience will definately show. Lara, Sarwan, Bradshaw and Gayle in particular are massive blows IMO, this dispute is doing absolutely nothing to promote the game in the country that will eventually hold the 2007 World Cup!

    To be honest, I hope they get whipped real bad. That's the first team I've had no confidence in the WI or wanted them to do well. I'm sure a lot of other fans feel this way too. Not a nice way to get support back for the team and to encourage sponsors.

    on a more positive note, its good to see darren powell in the side, i was quite impressed with him on the tour of india.

    I think it was always going to be the case that Lara would only accept selection if the other players involved were selected aswell.

    As it stands, I cannot see the West Indies making it to the 4th day...even if it is South Africa who haven't exactly brilliant in tests over the last year.

    Boy do the springboks get lucky........ First a Zim side who had no idea what they were doing and now the weakest ever Windies side..... Even with Lara in the side, I would have thought that they would have struggled. This, is just a walkover.

    It's pretty awful to see all right. TBH I thought both sides would get round the table & thrash out some kinda compromise before it came to this.

    Shiv Chanderpaul has a lotta responsibility on his shoulders, I've no doubt he'll cope admirably because he strikes me as one of life's solid citizens. Whether fashioning silk purses from sow's ears is his thing is another question.....

    He may score runs, but do you seriously think he'll make a good captain?
    I can't recall the number of time I've seen Chanderpaul bat with a young player who's getting lip from the opposition and he just stands there at the other end without saying a word. On other occasions he's seen the young player attempt ridiculous shots and guess what, he just stands at the non-striker's end without saying a word.
