    I know Hinds looked pretty dire in the home series, but he'd add more options to a squad than Dave Bernard, surely - particularly when Sammy is already there.

    I'm also surprised Bravo isn't there. I know he hasn't had a lot of cricket since he returned from that long injury, but I think you can afford to carry someone a little bit underdone when it's a 17-man squad, and he looked like he was getting back into decent stride in the ODIs. Has he picked up another injury or something?

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    The problem with that is, the top post of this thread was actually made after those posts, so the earliest one made would actually become the start of the thread. I'll see what I can do though.

    Yeah figured that might be aproblem. And about Bravo, AFAIK he's feeling some soreness with the ankle and he's being rested in the longer form.

    Simmonds
    Chanderpaul
    Nash
    Ramdin
    Taylor
    Edwards

    Rampaul should have been taken.

    How does Pascal get in ahead of Baker who has Test experience?

    How good is Ramdin's captaincy? Or is the best of the rest outside of Gayle?

    I know it is a short series (no T20! ), but it is good to see the West Indians will have some proper practice matches.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Pascal ahead of Rampaul?
    Classic pace ahead of performance.
    Simmons should get a run in the team now that he's debuted, but I think Deonarine is presently a better batsman by a fair way.

    And Dave Bernard? He barely looked club standard when he was picked years ago. His performances for Jamaica since hardly suggested he's turned the many corners to become Test class.
    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."

    Captained throughout age level, West Indies Under-19 and led the team very impressively in the T20 fixture v England. Quite competent, I'd say.
