    Morton has 2 half-centuries in his 7 ODI innings and averages 28.43. He averages almost 40 in non-international OD matches. He looks competent at international level already.

    Xavier Marshall has 0 half-centuries in 10 ODI innings and averages 9.80. He averages in the mid20s outside of international cricket. He looks completely underdone and utterly incompetent.

    Basically Morton is already a better batsman than Marshall and will surely only get better with more experience. Both are brilliant fielders though.

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."

    Lara
    Sarwan
    Morton
    Samuels
    Bravo
    Dwayne Smith
    Ramdin
    Banks
    Bradshaw
    Collymore
    Collins
    Edwards
    Rampaul

    On reflection, p'raps Darren Sammy to edge out a specilaist seamer. Sounds like he came on with the bat last season, but not sure whether he has the potential to be a front-line bowler. I think he's a good fielder too. Have you seen much of him Mr M?

    At the moment he's a poor man's Bravo. He doesn't do much with the ball or have any genuine pace, but he is accurate for the most part and seems to try things. I don't think his batting is anywhere near up to international grade yet, but I won't deny that he is improving. By 2007, who knows. I'd like that he get some good exposure next year if he is to be ready for the World Cup though.

    He's a brilliant fielder. In fact, a lot of the young West Indian cricketers are very good fielders. That's one area that seemingly has improved at a grassroots level.

    His been batting mainly in the middle order (4 or 5) for Colombo Cricket Club during the current OD Season, but apparently he can open as well as been seen as a future number 3 prospect. All in all he seems to be watch this space type of player cus no one really knows much about him, apart from the fact that his had a brilliant start to his OD Domestic career as well as scoring a fifty on his FC debut playing for Sri Lanka A aganist NZ A.

    i think sri lanka should change their team completly for the world cup if they want to try and even have a chance of winning it, if they don't they will go out in the first round

    To me both look incompetent at international level. It's a purely objective opinion that. Also with regards to team selection. I just selected players who are at the fore now for selection and those who look like they can be there come 2007. You might be right about Marshall though but I'd pick Deonarine over both of them.
