    Current West Indian XI

    A lot of new Windies players have been tried over the year partially because some guys have been injured at different times but partially also because of the realisation to rebuild the team.

    If a West Indian XI was to be selected today with the fit players included, whom would you select? (only players who havent retired because else Walsh and Ambrose could still make the team )

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."

    I wouldn't dream of claiming I know as much as Liam but this is the half-educated team I would pick:
    Campbell
    Gayle
    Hinds
    Lara
    Chanderpaul
    Sarwan
    Jacobs
    Mohammed
    Dillon (no way do I think he's Test class, but he is the Bichel of West Indies)
    Rampaul (simply because there presently aren't any others who haven't been tried and exposed)
    Lawson (he at least seems to be more accurate than some)
    I simply don't rate any of the bowlers like Taylor (though no, I've never seen them), Banks (don't need to see him), Edwards (seen enough now), Drakes, Collymore or Best and the like.

    That's rather ignorant. These are players, not statistics and figures.

    Yes, but the point of statistics is to sum-up the ability of players.
    They don't always do so, but that is the idea.
