    Worrell was an excellent batsman and the hardest exclusion, but he didn't open quite enough.

    Yet you don't apply the same logic to keepers?

    Walcott was the wicket keeper for his first 15 tests and only stopped when he got injured. He kept wicket for Barbados to get into the West Indies team and kept his place despite poor batting performances early in career because of his performances with the gloves.
    He was a wicket keeper.
    It was just my opnion, which I believe I am still entitled to. If everyone wants to vote Worrell, feel free, but I prefer a specislist # 1 opener.

    Frank Worrell opened 6 times in 80-odd test knocks, ftr. Walcott was more of a keeper.

    Greenidge and Haynes, for me. Has that ring.

    Yeah I voted for both, but Worrell was a middle order batsman who opened a few times for team balance reasons and Walcott was a wicket keeper/batsman who gave up the gloves to prevent injury. Not really the same.

    Hunte was a better batsman than Haynes, so we are choosing the (slightly) inferior batsman because he actually played with Greenidge?

    Thought Fredericks would get more votes. He could tear a quality fast attack in a session.

    Yes, the voting for our ATG WI team has been a bit strange.

    The fact that Frank Worrell has 6 votes is an admission that omitting Lance Gibbs was a tactical howler. Obviously Gary Sobers is not good enough to carry the spin bowling duties on his own after all. Hence we apply a patch to the patch-up the existing imbalance in team. And dare I say create yet another weakness by not selecting a specialist in a key batting position.
