    Heavily debatable, isn't it?

    Has to be 7-0. Don't even know if I'll be able to bring myself to watch it on Sky.

    Theoretically there are seven one-dayers to make up for the absence of the Tests, to boost gate receipts.

    But who the hell is going to turn up?

    Paul injured his wrist several years ago now, and couldn't bowl legspin anymore, then he emigrated. Bryan is still in Zimbabwe. He's now a cricket coach at Prince Edward School, but he doesn't play first-class cricket anymore. He was banned for making political comments, and although he did make a brief comeback last season (and there were calls for him to return to the national side) he has now quit pro cricket.

    Thanks for your quick response. Bryan was a left arm quick wasn't he?

    Probably won't attend any ODIs. The compensation is not expecting huge turnouts for each match. They want a larger spread of crowd over 7 matches, which would probably equate two or three sellouts.

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."

    Paul Strang is playing club cricket in Auckland, New Zealand now.

    He was on the NZ Cricket Company show a few months ago. Due to injuries he plays as a batsman only now.

    If Zim win 1 game, that is ok. Anything can happen once. It would not be a big deal.

    If they win more than 1 then even more serious questions must be asked about WI cricket.

    I cant see it happening though. This is a series WI need to get back on track and really give an oldfashioned beatdown to someone.

    This'll be a walk in the park for the W Indies really, expecting a at least one pretty big score if they bat first.

    Would expect Windies to sweep the series, but - this being the Windies - it would be rash to rule out them chucking a couple of games away.

    I'm hoping they'll sprinkle the side with a good number of "A" team players, including those who performed well against England "A", such as Chattergoon, Joseph, Kelly and Baugh. Kelly - in particular - ought to be a shoe-in, but I guess the first teamers will be relishing a rare opportunity to clock up some wins and boost the averages and they do need to get some match practice in before India arrive and the serious business starts.

    I'd be shocked if Kelly didn't play against Zimbabwe. I suspect he may get picked as a specialist bowler, in that he could bat at 8 or 9, which will be fine. His batting is potent enough that if he fires with the ball, he'd be a great asset to have down the order.

    I sense that Chattergoon may be one of those really good players who will never represent the West Indies, although he's infinitely more disciplined than Chris Gayle and has better technique than Gayle and Hinds put together. Right now if Ganga fails, Devon Smith will open with Gayle. Gayle won't get dropped for a very long time yet. Chattergoon probably can adapt to the middle order, but I'd prefer to see him opening if he gets selected.

    I'm still not convinced about Carlton Baugh jr. in terms of batting or wicketkeeping. Denesh Ramdin's recent brain farts worry me though.

    Sylvester Joseph seems to have matured greatly over the last two years or so. He's now emerged as a batting force in the region. I don't know if they'll find room for him in the lineup though, providing Sarwan is fit.

    I'd agree with that about Baugh, Kelly and Joseph. I think Baugh's biggest problem in his batting though is a bit of inconsistency.

    It's mostly shot selection. It's, simply and nicely put, idiotic most times.
