    I'm sure some young guy who took two wickets and scored 19 runs in the local 2nd grade competition will turn up on the day.

    The WI have named their squad for the two 20/20 matches and the first two ODIs, all of which will be played in Antigua....

    It's the same squad that played in the world 20/20 champs, minus Wavell Hinds, who hasn't been replaced.

    West Indies might actually do well in Tests and T20's thatn the ODI's. They simply don't know how to play ODI cricket.

    Their Test record especially at home has been better than their ODI's. I doubt if they will win a Test match, however I feel they will run them close. I expect the Tests to be pretty well fought provided there are no injuries to key players in West Indies.

    I predict 1-1 in T20's 4-1 for SA in the ODI's and a hard fought 2-0 for the Saffies in the Tests.

    You might be surprised but i don't have blind faith you know!! , i just think it could go either way, we'll either get embarrassed or we'll give them hell, it just depends on what WI turn up, the one who took England apart at Sabina park or the one who couldn't be bothered in the first test against the Aussies last Decemeber? i guess well see,

    Darren Bravo is in brilliant form and he must be close to a call up now, him along with Barath, Brathwaite, Chesney Hughes and Kiaran Powell will give us one hell of a top order in the next three or four years, also Nelon Pascal and Shillingford must be close too, with Wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton also doing well, Gibbo and the selectors have got some decent options now so it's up to them to get it right this time.

    Anyway whoever that was, I could be that guy in 2010, because I'll be putting a fair bit on SA for the tests I reckon.
    It may be me you were thinking of- I didn't lose any money because my medium-sized bet was mysteriously refunded- lost all remaining dignity, though...

    Hope to see Amla play in the ODI's. Whenever hes been called in to fill in a spot hes done well, surprised he hasn't been given a steady run in the side.

    FFS, must you turn every thread into a conversation about the West Indies?

    I'm looking forward to the Tests. It might very well prove to be a hard fought, tight series. I guess it comes down to Steyn's form. If WI can handle him, they should be able to score big totals.

    The WI attack looks strong with Taylor, Roach, Bravo and Benn. On a spinning track, Gayle might be useful. I'm not so sure WI should pick another bowler. Mayeb give Sammy a chance? I've always been impressed by Sammy, but I seem to be a bit alone with that opinion.

    WI:
    -Gayle
    -Barath
    -Sarwan
    -Chanders
    -Nash
    -Bravo
    -Ramdin
    -Sammy
    -Taylor
    -Benn
    -Roach

    I guess it will a specialist for Sammy though. Deonarine or Darren Bravo, or maybe another bowler. But I don't think there is another Test specialist bowler available atm.

    I think Gibson is more likely to go with another bowler than risk Sammy, South Africa could take the game away from us if we aren't on form with the ball, someone like Nelon Pascal probably, also think Darren Bravo may force his way into the side after his brilliant performances for the A-team recently, Shillingford and Walton may also pose serious threats to Benn and Ramdin's positions too, i guess that's why they haven't named the Test side yet, they are considering all the options.

    I don't see Sammy making the Test side - he's more likely to be used in the shorter form of the game.

    Darren Bravo is currently playing in Bangladesh for the A team, as some of you guys know, and is unlikely to get into the ODI side in the Caribbean for that reason. But I wouldn't be surprised if he's named to the Test squad, for when that series starts in June. That said, I think he's behind Deonarine in the pecking order. But it should just be a matter of time before he gets a shot....

    Loving this call.. Gibbs is past it, surely, and Albie Morkel is one of my least favourite players ever..
