    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.
    You're flip flopping now Mike!! .. you were blowing the "Dowlin trumpet" from the start and begging for the guy to be included even when i was telling you he's a waste of space, "stats" are a feeble excuse in this case as the guy simply lacks talent, and if we were just going on "stats" then Marlon Samuels should be right back in the team right now!! ,

    Funnily enough searching for posts made by you which include Shillingford seems to come up with the likes of:

    It all goes back to the scattergun approach of supporting people (and the odd definition of success that you appear to have)

    Then you have the temerity to go on to accuse others of "flip flopping"...

    Of course, the innings is not helped by the left-arm 'spinner' Harris bowling every single delivery of the session over the wicket to the right-handed Bravo, pitching way outside leg....

    This is extremely negative stuff from the Saffers.

    Of look it's "Columbo"

    Erm do you understand the term "flip flopping"? clearly not , "flip flopping" would be me totally running down Shilly before and now praising him, which is something i haven't done, my praising of Khan and Kantasingh was down to their performances in the regional competition and if you actually pay attention to WI cricket you'd see Khan actually got picked for the A-team and is still in it to this day, so my praise of him WAS JUSTIFIED!!,

    Keep "analyzing" my posts though, hopefully it will improve your knowledge about WI cricket!! .

    They're not even trying to score. For instance Tsotsobe in his current spell has 6-5-2-0. It's more than a joke, it's disgrace to West Indies cricket to play like this. There's only team who can realistically win the game and it's the West Indies.

    Chanderpaul out.

    Bull ****.

    Harris' figures for that session 10-2-15-0

    The session yielded 39 runs from 25 overs, meaning they're going just as slow from the other end.

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."

    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.
    All of whom are FAR more WI standard than England too! They should take a lesson from Nash.

    On another note, brilliant Ramdin. Flat pitch, crap bowling, hit it to point. Brilliant.

    Well the bowling is often a couple feet outside offstump, but I agree. Bravo in particular has lacked impetus. But then we look at Bangladesh today. Maybe it's a global disease affecting bad teams. Hmmm...

    Pretty simple! They were playing on proper cricketing turf......and not on the road!

    And in fairness, Graeme Smith would have it no other way. Done his best to ensure it with typically soulsapping cricket. Both sides have been rather disgraceful on the "entertainment" front today. And hey, it's no wrestling, but all sports should be entertaining.

    Kallis just took his 50th wicket vs WI. That's 1/5 of his overall tally.

    Give the guy a break! I have seen better knocks in tight situation against top class bowling attacks from him and Bravo as a pair...

    2 lefties were scoring at 6 an over...WI scored 300+ yesterday! Obviously Smith was going to try to content them!

    I thaught Windies would try to score 320/330 in the day and would give the SAF a hard time on the 5th day but....well! Bravo and Chander just gave in...
