    Chappell very wrong about Ganga being good enough to hold a place in the current WI team as batsman here.

    He can bat at 8 and replace Benn.

    Though really there isn't much of a difference between him and Nash, both limited and Nash has a good start to test cricket thanks to some nice flat wickets.

    If Sarwan is fit for the next Test, who will get dropped now that the two younger guys Barath and Dowlin have done quite well.

    Will Bravo just take on the extra bowling workload instead of Taylor?

    1 Barath 2 Gayle 3 Sarwan 4 Dowlin 5 Chanderpaul 6 Nash 7 Bravo 8 Ramdin 9 Benn 10 Roach 11 Rampaul/Tonge. .

    Fairly weak bowling, the team above could draw a match in Aus, not so certain it would win a match.

    Ganga had his share of flat wickets.

    Dowlin's 32. Nice try anyway.

    Reckon Dowlin will get the axe, as Barath's virtually carrying the innings.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Not as flat as the wickets seen when England last toured the Caribbean, even Ramdin was getting 150+ scores.

    Their probably aint much to separate Ganga & Nash indeed. But Ganga wasted alot of his chances others guys deserve a go now before he can ever be considered again TBF.

    Ganga to me would be WIs version of Mike Brearley.

    Pretty sure Ganga's batted at the ARG more than once.

    Anyway, Ganga won't be getting another chance anytime soon.

    Yeah, Barath is really impressive for a 19 year old. Would be a big moment for him to make a ton here.

    Did you see Umar Akmal bat against New Zealand? That boy does look pretty special.
