    "WI would have had an unproven test spinner, with a ridiculously good record against New Zealand, playing in helpful conditions."

    I don't think Narine would have equalled a definite series win but he definitely would have been an upgrade on post-rehab Shilly and he caused pretty much the same group of batsmen a lot of problems previously. I think it's time to give Narine a run as our premier test match spinner as I think he will cause havoc in spin friendly conditions.

    "with a ridiculously good record against New Zealand", avarages about the same as Trent Boult vs WI, 22 is very good but ridiculously good?

    The thing is we all know that if Narine had been picked and performed to his overall record then WW would've straight away come out with the excuse that he couldn't be expected to perform without any red ball practice.

    Still, yet again after a series defeat we hear that WI are moving forwards, so that's good news - got to improve that 10 years or so run of 6 wins in the last 84 Tests against meaningful opposition somehow...

    Actually I stand corrected, he averages 24 against us and not 22, both Boult and Southee average less vs The Windies. But he cant be judged on anything as he has only played a handful of games. He is as yet unproven.

    Just because he is unproven doesn't mean I shouldn't be of the opinion that I think he would have made a difference, as Beamer pointed out.

    He would've been a better option than Shillingford, for sure.

    And yet despite such a record WI still hold the record for the longest streak without defeat in a test series and have won more trophies than certain other "top sides"...but i digress .
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

    He's not only devastated NZ in the tests though he's also ran through them in the one dayers...whether home or away he has a hold over that top order imo.

    He didn't want to play in the tests basically - so he is not much of a test cricketer in my eyes regardless of whether his record is the real deal or not.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    He did want to play..but the admin were stupid and banned him for turning up one day late to the "camp". Anyway like they say "everything happens for a reason" and us losing has ushered in a new dawn for our cricket. I hope we meet NZ again soon be it home or away and we'll see if the result is different with Narine in the fold .
