he's a pretty cool dude, and is really turning into a dominator of the t20 format. in his 9 games back his average has gone up by 9 & has hit 54 boundaries at 155
Very low temperature fella.
Slightly underrated in the longer format too, IMHO. Has two triple centuries in tests, which puts him in very exulted company. Footwork not from the MCC manual, obvz, but gets to the pitch of the ball & as clean a striker as one will ever see.
Any road: Gayle, Samuels, Chanders, Narine & Roach = Windies back? Discuss.

"The PFA does not represent players when they have broken the law and been convicted on non-football matters."
- Gordon Taylor in 2009 following Marlon King's release after a prison sentence for sexual assault & ABH
Add Jerome Taylor and Darren Bravo to that.
Why? Granted he's played nearly no cricket all year but I hope he plays a part in the Windies future.
Holding alluded to some attitude issues during the comm on their tour up here. Said he was rather too chuffed with the wedge he got from the IPL, built/bought himself a huge mansion and has been generally pissing the rest up the wall.
Also said he'd been dicked about by the board tho. IIRC the WICB said he has to play 6 months of domestic uninterrupted before he'd even be considered for the national side.
EDIT: IPL/Stanford; whatevs. Both evil.

Yeah, Holding seemed to be saying, IIRC, that Taylor had to play a full season of domestic cricket to be picked again. He couldn't do that in the 2010/11 season because of injury, so therefore wasn't available for WI selection for another year. I think he stopped trying after that.
