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."

    The Squads

    I tip Jamaica to win it. The Jamaican squad this year looks awesome with the ability to put XI international players on the field.

    Can I take it from that, that Canada are the invited team this year.

    Well Canada has played the RSB before. We consider them almost an associate member of sorts. It's only in the Carib Beer Cup that we officially invite international teams.

    Yes. He's actually been doing regional commentary for a while now.

    I cant wait for it. When does The Carib Beer Competition start?

    Liam, since you are a Trini - how do you rate Dwayne Bravo? I know he went to Englan last year on the 'A' team.

    The Carib Beer Cup is not until around February.

    Bravo is a very impressive talent. His main attribute is his batting and he's quite the strokeplayer, but over the last season, his bowling has really come along. He bowls quickish medium and I've heard that he swings it a bit at times. I think that he could be a particularly handy ODI player in years to come. I don't know how effective his bowling would be at Test level however, but as I implied before, his bowling is fast improving.

    Yes, I heard so on the radio today. I'm a bit surprised, but I guess he was the best West Indian spin option as he's unlikely to be on tour with the senior team.

    A potential batting all-rounder? I hope he is better then Dave Bernard.

    Dave Bernard is talented but clearly not at Test standard yet. He was very much out of his depth, but I wouldn't give up on him for the future.

    Bravo seems to have more pace than Bernard and does more with the ball from what I've seen.
