Part 1 - the bowlers:
The West Indies batting is fine, but I find the West Indies weakness is in their bowling, here is my thoughts:
Fidel Edwards - yet to see him bowl. I'm told that he has the good qualities in swing, pace and accuracy. Will need to get on performing. Potentially Lara has unearthed a diamond.
Jerome Talyor - as above. I'm told the Jamacian is highly rated in Jamaica.
Perdo Collins - a real disappointment. Bowled well against India when India toured the Carribbean, but wasnt at his best against Australia.
Merv Dillion - similar action to the great Courtney Walsh (I share his surname ) but I dont feel he is off international standard. He is too inconsistant.
Jermiane Jawason - a big future a head of him once he fixs his action. A long Test career for him.
Omari Banks - A good young finger spinner who I felt bowl well in his Test debut.
Dinath Ramnarine - I feel he has a future still, but I felt he wasnt going to get a game with Hooper as captain.
Rion King & Franklyn Rose - good bowlers who fell out with the selectors and/or with the law.
Vasbert Drakes - Probably the most experienced of the lot, but playing in South Africa and in England prevented him from having a longer Test career.
Corey Collymore - Bowled very well in his return to Test cricket after being pidgen holed as a ODI specialist - who is very accurate and injuries as well. But then again I dont think much of all West Indies selectors in the last five or so years.
More opinions on West Indies cricket coming soon.
