    Before 2009, might have disagreed with this, especially in light of no better options. But he's certainly not doing the job he was picked for of late. Might be time to look around?

    Buying time for Tahir? The only other options are Botha and Robbie P.

    I thought you liked Deonarine?

    Make up your mind already. The other team was cooler bro. Need to get rid of Gayle and start scouting pre-schools for sum talentz imo.

    Nah, I think Rampaul is a pretty dire bowler. Can just completely lose it all too often for an international bowler and doesn't seem to threaten too much. Sammy has 27 wickets at 27.74, so far in Test cricket and has 16 FC fifties, he is a much more valuable option, imo. Stats are boosted by two five wicket hauls against Bangladesh, but he also has seven against England, showing he can do it against high quality () opposition too.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    You're the one who's always banging on about the team's improved showing in Australia, a huge chunk of that was down to Gayle's batting. Not only did his unbeaten ton in the 2nd Test earn you a draw, it put the Windies in a position where they might have won the Test.

    Indeed. Gayle has carried Windies batting for a while ever since Shiv started his rapid decline. If anything, its time for the other batsmen to actually put their hand up, rather than suggesting Gayle should be dropped when he is the one holding this team together by the string of thread

    And where was he in the first Test? as i said before he's too hit and miss and his lack of leadership skills is killing the team spirit imo.

    Err, hitting in two of three Tests having gotten pinned by two decent balls in the first Test is not being hit and miss.

    And, honestly, how would you know anything about the inner workings of the team? Press reports don't really count.

    His failure to perform in the first test put us on the backfoot from the very start, so yet again we were behind the ball by the time he hit his big scores, and yes press reports do count because they have inside sources.

    I understand that Gayle being dropped anytime soon is not likely to happen, but i just want a fresh start with new faces now, i believe it's time to embrace the great youngsters we've got coming through and Gayle hasn't got the right personality to guid them in the right way.
