    Surely he would have to break his County contract for that to happen? I mean, he's signed as a Briton.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Gayle made it clear recently that he and Benn are still friends, but that some things are unacceptable and have to be said.

    The crab still has it.

    This is definitely a draw pitch though.

    Searching your posts and spinners brings up the following couple:

    And incidentally no mention advocating Shillingford...

    True. Would depend on his allegiances. Should play for Leewards next season.

    Shiv and Nash are class, which is why you can't judge them on the last two or three Tests....

    It's better to look at their career Test stats when making judgments about their inclusion.

    With regards to Dowlin, as I've said before, I'm not a fan of his, but I do accept he merits another run with his Test stats. He's got his run, and I wouldn't be surprised if he's dropped as soon as Barath regains his fitness.

    Secondly i simply think it's time for the younger generation to get a chance, as good as Nash and Chanders have been in this Test they were shocking in the last one, Collin Croft has called for the seniors to be dropped too, a legend of a bowler who knows the game inside out so do you believe you know more about cricket than he does? .
    I always have difficulty following a lot of what Croft has to say....

    shilly has earned his place in the side, thanks to good performances in the A team, but aside from Darren Bravo, who's bound to get his chance soon, who else has really been outstanding in the current A team tour of England? I can only see bowling allrounder Andre Russell, and Windwards batsmen Devon Smith and Andre Fletcher.

    This is why I'm concerned about Chesney Hughes....

    Will he follow the precedents of Chris Jordan, Maurice Chambers and Robbie Joseph, none of whom seem to be interested in WI cricket, despite learning how to play the game in the region.

    High scoring draws bore me. It's funny that they would prepare a pitch like this when they need a result.

    Shiv to slowly grind a double ton, match to grind to a draw, batsmen pad their stats as well as each others backs, c'est la vie.

    Disgraceful batting.

    They've scored 38 runs in the 23 overs today. ****ing disgraceful.

    And that's lunch, another couple of maidens against nothing bowling so the session becomes:

    39 runs off 26 overs.

    Gutless and cowardly cricket from the West Indies. They should be getting booed by the entire crowd.

    I just saw the score, and thought it must have been a delayed start.

    So talking about two spinners who were in the top three wicket takers in the last four day regional season means i didn't want Shilly in the side? yep makes perfect sense!! , as i already said i was raving about him since his A-team performances against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh a few months ago, and defended him while others had doubts, you can also "research" those comments if you wish .
