    I believe this could be the XI for the first match:


    Gambhir
    Vijay
    Rohit
    Yuvraj
    Dhoni
    Nayyar
    Pathan
    Harbhajan
    Praveen
    RP Singh
    Ishant


    Ideally I would like to see Ishant rested too.. Maybe a Dhawal Kulkarni could have gone instead.. Or even Sreesanth.


    Depending on form and fitness of others, esp. Yuvi, maybe even Badri can come in for a game for him and Jadeja in place of Nayyar...
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Are the WI pitches bouncy these days or are they slow pitches with unpredictable bounce?

    Well, India are only playing on two pitches - Sabina Park in Kingston, and Beausejour in St Lucia....

    Sabina is not easy to bat on, and can offer assistance to both bowlers and batsmen. However, on the first day (the first match), it will probably be good for batting. The second match should offer more for the bowlers.

    Beausejour should be better for more fluent strokeplay.

    Thanks for the info. Got a feeling that Gayle is going to be in mean form when the series starts.

    However, it was a good move by India to travel to Jamaica. I understand they arrived in Jamaica yesterday!

    It will take the WI players some time to get re-acclimatised to the Caribbean wickets again, so I'm expecting an interesting series....

    Hope Nayar has a trick or two to deal with Bravo - his IPL team mate.

    My Windies XI (plus reserves) for this series:

    Kieron Powell
    Lendl Simmons
    Ramnaresh Sarwan
    Shiv Chanderpaul
    Dwayne Bravo (VC)
    Darren Bravo
    Denesh Ramdin (C, WK)
    Darren Sammy
    Jerome Taylor
    Suliemann Benn
    Nelon Pascal

    Reserves:

    Imran Khan
    Lionel Baker
    David Bernard Jr

    Notes:

    - Chris Gayle may miss this series to have ankle surgery to make sure he is fit in time for the tour of Australia.
    - I wouldn't take any chances with Fidel Edwards either if he is having back spasms. This is a pretty unimportant series and he is too important to risk.
    - Nelon Pascal is an interesting pace option against an Indian lineup that looked highly uncomfortable against pace in the 20/20 tournament.
    - Imran Khan is a bit of a wildcard but he is a quickish leg spinner who can give the ball a good thump with the bat.
    - Kieron Powell is our best alternative to Gayle when it comes to having a power player at the top of the order IMHO.
    - It is time we have a proper batsman coming in at 6 instead of a hit and miss candidate like Pollard. Darren Bravo can attack just as well as Pollard but he is also capable of playing to the situation.

    Could see a few new faces for the West Indies with the Tests against Bangladesh after and the Champions Trophy.

    No one has stopped him from putting in a request for break though

    It is a good team but I don't think they will drop Bhajji ever.


    And I think DK is better at 5,6 or 7 than at the top.
