    **Official** West Indian Domestic Season 2014

    Our domestic season, started with the 50 Over competition, gets under way on January 30th. This year Ireland have been invited as the guest team, which should add an extra dimension to the tournament. It will be very interesting to see how they do. The tournament is being held in T & T so expect the spinners to prove a handful, and the pacers can get some movement at the Queens Park Oval.

    50 Over Tournament Schedule

    January

    Thursday, 30th: Windwards v Jamaica at Queen’s Park Oval

    Friday, 31st: Guyana v Ireland at Queen’s Park Oval

    Tuesday, 4: Jamaica v Guyana at Queen’s Park Oval

    Wednesday, 5th: CCC v Leewards at Shaw Park

    Thursday, 6th: T&T v Barbados at Shaw Park

    Friday, 7th: Windwards v Guyana at Queen’s Park Oval

    Saturday, 8th: Jamaica v Ireland at Queen’s Park Oval

    Sunday, 9th: CCC v Barbados at Queen’s Park Oval

    How many first class cricketers have been called Imran Khan? Must be the most numerous, surely?

    Good FC figures. Any chance he could play for the WI?

    There have been a fair few in the Caribbean alone, let alone Pakistan.

    He's a handy all-round cricketer but not quite good enough to make the senior team. He is an aggressive right handed batsman and quickish leg spin bowler. Like most half decent spinners in our domestic cricket, he takes lots of wickets. When he was selected for the A team his bowling was very ineffective and his batting was useful but not good enough to be a senior team cricketer. But in this age where someone like Darren Sammy can have an automatic place in the test side, who knows?

    The Jamaican squad has been announced. The big news is that Jerome Taylor is finally back playing domestic cricket. By all accounts he looked quite rusty in the practice games but they have selected him on past performance. Lets hope he has a brilliant season because I would love to see him back at international level.

    Controversially, Krishomar Santokie, one of the best Limited Overs bowlers in the region, has been left out as the West Indies team doctor said he would struggle to bowl 10 overs. This is even though he bowled 10 overs very effectively in all the practice matches. This is quite typical of cricket administration in the Caribbean, it really is a mess at territorial level.

    “We looked at the balance of the team and so on, and also the pitches in Trinidad which is where most of the matches will be played , are not playing like they did before. Traditionally, when you come to T&T , teams were accustomed to the ball turning . That is not the case. The pitches are a bit more green this time around and so we opted for the extra seamer.”

    Interesting quote from the T & T Chief of Selectors. That does beg the question why they left out their best swing and seam bowler Marlon Richards? Another example of muddled thinking by selectors at territorial level.

    I was going to start this thread myself closer to the start and send all you blokes VMs asking you to get involved. Awesome that I don't need to.

    We haven't had a good West Indian domestic thread for a few seasons now; it used to be a very interesting read though so hopefully it can get back to its glory days.

    More than anything I'm hoping for some good pitches this season to give us more of an accurate reflection of players' abilities. I like Nikita Miller, and no disrespect to him, but when he can take 52 wickets @ 7 in a First Class season then you need to re-evaluate your domestic setup a little.

    I'll try my best to post regularly when it the season gets going. I'm sure there will be lots for us to talk about, there usually is, even if it's mostly negative!

    Agreed, our pitches are the biggest problem of all. There is also a lack of batting talent (4 day wise anyway) and incredibly poor administration, but batsmen and pacers from most countries would struggle on some of the pitches our guys have to play on. More than anything else, I want to see batsmen putting up good numbers with at least 5 or 6 players averaging over 50 with a few hundreds under their belt.

    I'd also like to see a few pacers in the top wicket takers list alongside the spinners. Hopefully the captains will give them a few more overs to allow them to do this.

    We're all holding our breath with this latest comeback...some at the jamaican trials say he was down on pace but the jamaican coaches claim he will be hitting his straps fully when the competition starts in a few weeks. I must say it would be a massive boost for us if Jerome gets through this comp and then the four day one aswell!!..if he achieves that then a comeback against your lot in may just might be on the cards ...on talent alone Jerome pushes Roach very hard for the title of "best pacer" in the Caribbean thats for sure.
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

    Anyway...when all the squads are announced i'll try to do some profiles on who to look out for an stuff. Winwards are the defending champions but they are likely to be without shilly so it will be interesting to see how they cope with that loss....while CCC made the final last time so can the students repeat it again? we'll see

    Barbados squad

    Squad: Sulieman Benn, Tino Best, Rashidi Boucher, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Jonathan Carter, Shane Dowrich, Fidel Edwards, Kirk Edwards, Jason Holder, Ashley Nurse, Dwayne Smith, Kevin Stoute, Kenroy Williams.

    Reserves: Miguel Cummins, Jamar Griffith, Shai Hope.

    The bim selectors are just pathetic...first they dump Kirk Edwards as captain even though he lead them to the 4 day title for the first time in years....but now they've decided to pick Tino and leave Cummings...who is one of the best prospects in the caribbean on the bench...(smh)

    I am, no doubt about it.

    The fewer other cricket forums I have to go on the better, because most of them are terrible. It's easy to say "we don't have an Irish domestic cricket discussion thread because we don't have many people who follow Irish domestic cricket", but maybe the reason we don't have the supporters is because we don't have the thread. I've made it a personal project to start up threads for every major domestic season in the world (or encourage other people to when I cbf, as you discovered personally ). We may attract some people from other parts of the world if we start up these threads and even if we don't at first, we'll probably get a couple of existing members more interested in domestic cricket across the world anyway which is great for a cricket site.

    I hope not. The last thing the West Indies need is a batting norounder with zero self belief of their own.
