    I know he hasn't got the zip since his injury a few years ago, but surely he would be a reasonable option in the test side? After all, he does move the ball.
    I have been saying this for ages now. Collymore is a very good bowler and surely won't be ignored for the Sri Lanka tests, with Dillon out and all.

    Re:Taylor, he simply destroyed the Trinidad and Tobago batting lineup in the Carib Cup this year. 'Nuff said.

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."

    But he does look a decent prospect.

    Indeed he does, not many 18 year olds can bowl at 88 mph with as good a control over line and length as him.....

    he's been included in the 14 for the 1st Test vs SRL, what do ya reckon Liam, isn't that a bit too young for a fast bowler to make his debut..... then again who am I to be the judge on that anyway....

    Yes. I think he's been included to justify his ODI selection because I doubt that they will actually play him bar injury. I believe he should play another FC season first. They should play Collymore and Powell (D) ahead of him certainly. Once more, I cry out for a place for Dave Mohammed.....

    Methinks the selectors went OTT in selecting him for the 1st Test, and WI need some quick wickets tomorrow.

    All this talk of Taylor, and he comes up with a usless display on day 1!

    Knowing the West Indian selectors, he will probably now join Tino Best on the scrap heap - I doubt they will pick him again in a hurry.

    Maybe Ricardo Powell should've been given a chance instead of Marlon Samuels.....

    I think now that they've given Taylor a chance, they should keep him as he will only learn from such experiences.

    Naturally, I agree with persevering with Taylor.

    My point more is though, that they should have done the same with Best - but he's on the scrapheap, and he is almost certainly the more talented yet tempramental of the 2.

    Will be interesting to see how that unfolds. Btw, has Vasbert been rested? He's a very clever bowler and good to have in a Test to create pressure. I hope he has not been dropped.

    There's a big school of thought that says 'Ricardo Powell - one-day specialist'.

    I call 'rubbish'. Get him in.

    Ricardo Powell shouldn't be allowed near the Test team and certainly not for Samuels. Samuels played beautifully against SL in the ODI's and was MOS. Powell doesn't have the patience to bat for long periods and I think it's because he played quite a bit of ODI cricket before Test cricket.

    Vasbert has been dropped in favour of Taylor, which is pure crap from my perspective. Taylor shouldn't be in the team at this point in his career. He should've played another FC season first.

    I see that SRL has picked just 4 batsman and some bowling all rounders. Is it due to the respect they have for windies bowling
