    Breese, Chanderpaul and Sarwan as West Indies Cricketers

    Based on Gareth Breese's performances for Durham I believe he now warrants a recall to the West Indies team. He provides some variety with his spin and is pretty handy with the bat. He's certainly much more Test level than any other spinner currently available to the West Indies. Also, I feel that Ramnaresh Sarwan should be appointed captain (if and when the whole fiasco blows over). He's pretty much assured a spot in the team and looked pretty good in charge against Bangladesh. Looked a good prospect for captain then. Don't know why he was demoted from his vice-captaincy. Shiv Chanderpaul I think should be the vice captain. Not sure he fits into the captain role. Not saying he's bad at it but I don't think he will anything of note that will improve the team's fortunes in his current role. What are your views?

    I don't think Breese can get a recall now he plays for Durham as a non-overseas player

    Not necessarily so - he probably qualifies as a non-overseas based upon residential criteria - that won't affect his eligibility for the Windies..

    Division Two in England = possibly the easiest place in the world to get cheap wickets, bar Premier League competition in Sri Lanka and the Zimbok and Bangla domestic competitions.

    In fact, Gareth already has played one Test: 31.2-3-135-2, on a spinners' track in India. Stick to Omari Banks and Dave Mohammed - at least they can learn...

    It's not as if the West Indies domestic league is top class either.

    He has a British passport according to Cricinfo.

    Also it's not fair to judge a player on one Test.

    completely disagree, the standard of batsmen in the second division is the highest its been for years.

    What do you think about Sarwan being given the captaincy should he play again?

    Breese does nothing with the ball to suggest he'd be a threat as a frontline spinner. He's not a good enough batsman or bowler to play ahead of Bravo as the allrounder. No room for him.

    Sarwan I believe would make a good captain and it would help his personal game. That said, I don't see the wisdom in sacking Chanders from the role at this stage. He's worked with our C side in Sri Lanka and there are positives coming through.
    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."
