    **Official** The West Indies in England

    With England touring the West Indies and the WIndies touring England I started the thread about 2 mounths before the first tour.

    EDIT: After a 3-0 victory The West Indies come to England

    2 months being the operative phrase - what is the point in starting these threads so early, and then calling them official?!

    It must at this rate be time to start the World Cup 2007 forum soon.

    marc, I ask you this question again, given that you ignored it last time:
    Harmison is in the squad. The wickets are likely to offer nothing to any conventional bowlers (ie seam, turn, uneven bounce). West Indies have plenty of good batsmen. The reason you have given for forgiving his poor performances for the most part against Australia and South Africa is that the wickets were good for batting and the batting was good.
    Will this be the same if the same happens in West Indies?

    I don't remember being asked this question directly, but what I will say is what I've always said regarding him - when he's performing better than the rest of the bowlers, I do not see why his is the first name on the list of people for the chop.

    IMO both the England and West Indies bowling attacks will be a lot better than they have been of late if all concerned are fully fit.

    I see runs for Sarwan in the series. Not too sure about Lara...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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'd be interested to hear the reasoning for this.

    Gut feelings don't always explain lapses in form for the greatest batsman in the world, wouldn't complain if that gut feeling came true though!

    I hope we see runs for good batsmen (the most for the best) and good figures for good bowlers.
    So, who's going to be getting the good figures, then...?

    Any suggestions?

    And as for Harmison, if he averages 80 in the WI Tests and Anderson and the rest average 90, will you seriously still call for his retention?

    The key is to ignore Neil and his minions.

    Neil's got it into his ginger nut that the world needs to be rid of all excess apostophe's () and therefore he points them out at every opportunity.

    Bit sad really :P
