    Interesting to see that Chanderpaul is the only established one to side with the WICB in this dispute and the one before the tour of SA.

    Well I don't know how patriotic this makes me, but I'm feeling too perturbed about the squad that's going. There are definitely a couple of talented players in there who would otherwise have missed out. I never expected anything less a 2-0 result to Sri Lanka, so this tour can be considered a developmental tour. It's practically an extension of the A tour now. 8 A team players in the squad, which is exactly what I expected.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

    He did it before the VB Series and it got him the vice-captaincy. He did it before the home stand and it's gotten him a fair stint of captaincy.

    I wonder if this is a development squad, then would SL cricket be reprimanded if they put up a development squad as well and played a Test - and gave it Test status ?

    Please don't take offence Liam !!

    I mean would that be any different from Bangladesh playing the current Zimbo and calling it a Test ?

    If what you say is correct, would he not struggle in commanding the respect of players as Captain when the other senior players return to the Team ?

    His tenure as Captain would be fairly limited then , IMO.

    I don't think it's any small secret that Sarwan was stripped of the vice-captaincy as punishment for not complying with the Board. They couldn't punish Lara in the same way and get away with it, as the team had just won the CT.

    I think Chanderpaul's disposition will ensure that he struggles to gain full respect as a captain, regardless of circumstance.

    Well, in all fairness, 11 of the 14 squad members have played international cricket.

    Dwayne Smith opening!! I think not!

    Sylvester Joseph will more likely open. Dwayne Smith will get eaten alive in Sri Lanka.

    My XI:

    R Ramdass
    SC Joseph
    S Chanderpaul (C)
    R Morton
    NO Deonarine
    OAC Banks - a risk at 6, but he's more capable of dealing with the spot than Smith IMO.
    D Ramdin (wk)
    DC Butler
    DB Powell
    TL Best
    JJC Lawson

    The other option is to have Dwayne Smith in there for Powell, as Deonarine and Banks combine for a decent bowling combo. I fear for Marshall...

    SL A win by an Innings and 16 runs-

    http://nz.cricinfo.com/db/ARCHIVE/20...02JUL2005.html


    Arnold 159 and spinner Weerakoon with 6/56 in the second innings and 3/78 in first innings - were the main architects of the SL A win. Morton scored 115 in the first innings for Windies A team.

    On another note Grenada PM has criticised the Windies board saying " it was intent on taking West Indian Cricket on a destructive path "
    http://content.cricinfo.com/slvwi/co...ry/212439.html

    And Darren Ganga claims A team players were forced in to signing contracts !!

    http://content.cricinfo.com/slvwi/co...ry/212395.html

    Does anyone else think Windies cricket is messed up or not ?
