    ***Official** West Indies in England***

    Well, an awful lot of discussion in various threads is about England's Test side for the Windies series next month. Add that to the fact that the series is less than a month away, and I think it's time this thread got going, the board is in danger of being swamped with possible England XIs otherwise.

    The schedule:

    Somerset v West Indians - Taunton 12-14 May

    1st Test - Lord's 17-21 May
    2nd Test - Leeds 25-29 May
    3rd Test - Manchester 7-11 June
    4th Test - Chester-le-Street 15-19 June

    England A v West Indians - Worcester 21 June
    Derbyshire v West Indians - Derby 24 June
    PCA Masters XI v West Indians - Arundel 26 June

    1st T20I - Kennington Oval 28 June
    2nd T20I - Kennington Oval 28 June

    1st ODI - Lord's 1 July
    2nd ODI - Birmingham 4 July
    3rd ODI - Nottingham 7 July

    Don't expect us to lose a Test, but T20 and ODIs should be close...

    The only thing the schedulers can be applauded about is the fact that there are only 3 ODI's. There only needs to be one Twenty20 and either 3 or 5 (preferrably 3) Test matches. Be interesting to see what squad the West Indies will go with.

    Haha, I didn't expect us to lose a Test to Lanka this time last year either...

    But no, just because lightning has struck once doesn't mean to say you expect it to do so again.

    Honestly couldn't care less about the T2I, you may (not) be surprised to hear, but the ODI series should be a nice basement battle.

    Actually, I can think of something else to say - Graeme Smith to have a bumper series.

    Yes but they have made up for that by having SEVEN ODIs v India (because India didn't want to play 20-20?) As for the series we should be favourites to give Moores a good honeymoon - especially early season (WI flopped horribly in 2004 in the part of the season touring teams prefer) - and after the winter's nightmare there should be NO complacency...
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....

    I don't understand why they've gone 3-7 with the ODIs, not at all.

    Makes no sense.

    Mind, it made no sense to play 3 ODIs only per summer, and they did that almost every year until 1998...

    Now why on earth would they schedule 7 against India? They will probably end up going down 7-0, not to mention the fact that by the time the 5th one rolls around everyone will be bored.

    I'll be hoping that they don't bring Fidel Edwards, and also hoping that the Tadpole plays all 4 Test's.

    Not much new there but I'll think the unthinkable. Might WI play beter without Lara? Think back to SA at home in 2005. The best performance was when Lara wasn't there. Others (Sarwan? Gayle? Samuels?) have to take responsibility now rather than hiding behind Lara. Could be the making (or breaking) of them...

    1 Test doesn't prove anything IMO. It was simply that South Africa woefully underperformed in said game.

    Lara started his career when Richards, Dujon and Marshall had just left. He was always going to suffer by comparison.
