    West Indies Domestic Cricket 2014/15

    Our new professional 4 day league started today. It's potentially a great thing for our cricket with an extended season involving home and away matches and higher salaries enabling the pool of professional players to be extended. Of course, it has all been paid for by unfair salary cuts for the international players, but we know all about that!

    We've got some interesting new franchise names this year. The CCC have been thrown out (mainly because they were only selecting Bajan players) and the squad sizes of all the main teams have been expanded.

    Teams involved are:

    Barbados Pride
    Guyana Jaguars
    Jamaica
    Leeward Islands
    T & T Red Force
    Windward Islanda Volcanoes


    Here are the fixtures.

    Day 1 has been interesting without any huge surprises. The WICB still haven't provided us with close of play scores and the video feeds stopped working half way through the day. But what I have been able to find out is:

    - Kraigg Braithwaite scored the first century of the new league against T & T
    - Shane Shillingford took a 6 wicket haul against Jamaica
    - Narsingh Deonarine is 73 not out against Leeward Islands
    - Marquino Mndley took 3 quick wickets to reduce Windward Islands to 17/3. He's a West Indies Under 19 pacer.

    Are you sure it was Shilly who took the 6fer Beamer? because Cricinfo saying it's the left-arm spinner named Bobb. Shane Dowrich is also on 50 not with Kraigg on 115 not out at stumps.

    The trini swing bowler Richards also has three wickets thus far himself..

    All in all it was an ok day i guess...not happy with some of the line-ups tbh but hopefully more new players will get a chance in this new structure.
    One day world cup winners- Champions trophy winners- T20 world cup winners- 29 test series without defeat record- Highest run chase in test history record and some think we're minnows? :P

    Trinidad & Tobago left out Bryan Charles, Nicholas Pooran and Ramnaresh Sarwan.
    T&T didn't let Pooran enter the draft, but that doesn't mean they're going to let him play in a first-string side yet either.

    Jason Mohammed averages 25 from 41 FC games, but crucially bowls some spin. He gets the nod at No. 5.

    Yep...that really p/sses me off mate ...the only glimmer of light is Ramdin will be departing to SA soon for the series...so young Pooran had better get a chance then.

    Mindley was most certainly the surprise of the day..making the jamaican tail wag with Nikita Miller and then getting three quick wickets...he was always said to be a decent prospect so hopefully this will be his breakout season.

    Logie says watch Lewis, Pooran | West Indies Players' Association | The Voice Of The West Indian First Class Cricketers

    Nicholas Pooran is not in the squad for this weekend’s opener, but he will be given an opportunity later on; Yannick Ottley has the ability to establish himself as a decent all-round player; and Akeal Hosein was good last season and we want to see his progress this coming season.
    I see they went outside their 15 contracted players to play a young batting legspinner, too. They must have doubts about Pooran's temperament to be a specialist bat, which is a shame.

    Wow, I was drinking at the Oval last night and lost of people walking around outside in red T&T shirts and blue Barbados shirts. I wondered why and this is the answer. There has been no promotion for this. I live near Queens Park Oval and love cricket and I had no idea this was happening.

    I may go down today to watch day 2.

    Not happy about Marlon not being selected for Jamaica. He's in the test squad FFS and was in supreme form in India. Who gives a stuff if he missed a club game last season. Couldn't they give him a warning or something?

    Yep it's utterly ridiculous!!..and look how poorly Jamaica have batted in this current game? thankfully this new franchise league means Marlon can easily go and play for another side now...hopefully the Leewards will give him a call cause lord knows they need it.

    So yesterday Jamaica won a tense battle with Winwards by just 13 runs...Chasing 260 after rolling Jamaica out cheaply in their second innings Winwards looked like they were cruising to victory after Devon Smith, Theophile and Ambris gave them a great platformover over 100 for the first three wickets but the jamaicans kept chipping away and leg-spinner Jacobs done all the damage by getting 7 wickets to snatch the win.

    Also Leewards lost by an innings and 10 runs after Guyana put up over 300 and then got them out for a shameful 96. To their credit though Leewards battled hard after being asked to follow on and wicket keeper Jahmar Hamilton scored 70 odd and formed a dangerous partnership with bowler Gavin Tonge but in the end it wasn't enough and Bishoo, Permaul and Reifer got three wickets each.

    Barbados and Trinidad are currently battling it out with in a rain effected game..Barbados put up a massive 360 score with Brathwaite continuing his stunning form and getting 183 runs...Trinidad folded for 90 odd in their first knock and the absence of players like Darren Bravo, Pollard and Barath looked evident but like Leewards they have battled back after also following on and Elvin Lewis's 60 set the tone for a decent start...Yannik Ottly also got a handy 40 odd and they are currently 213/5 with the rain pouring down hard so this one could still be a draw even though Trinidad are still 50 odd runs behind.

    Sarwan setback | Trinidad Express Newspaper | Sports

    According to a media release by the T&T Cricket Board (TTCB) yesterday, “as a result of the latest developments Sarwan will take no further part in the newly branded Professional Cricket League four-day competition.”

    Wicket-keeper batsman Nicholas Pooran replaced the former Test cricketer in the Red Force team that left for St Kitts on Wednesday to try and get their campaign back on track after being wounded by the Barbados Pride.

    I went to the T&T vs Barbados game last Saturday.



    It was interesting. Looked a decent standard. Roach is tiny but quick, Jason Holder is tall but nothing quicker than medium. Queen's Park Oval track has no pace or carry - though that has always been the case.

    No crowd but then where does get a crowd in FC cricket?

    Small things that need to change. I drive past the QP Oval every day to go to work. Nowhere was this game advertised. There isnt anywhere announcing the next match. It was almost as if this didnt happen. Also, no stadium announcer or PA system. Beautiful stadium, decent cricket but poor promotion and production values. I also walked in for free. I would have paid but no one was on the gate and nowhere to pay.

    Why don't you biff another one on the up to a fielder, T&T top order.

    45/4, Pooran's going to feel really conflicted about whether to play his natural game in his maiden innings.
