    Anyone know how serious is the injury to Gayle?

    Will he be able to play in the next match?

    Conversion of dots to one's and twos is a major problem for us in ODIs.

    What is the batting coach/consultant training them to do about this?

    Lots of discussion from the sky commentators that Evin Lewis should be in the test side too. I have to say I agree with them, he just looks class. It really is worth a go in my opinion. I doubt they will though.

    I was wondering the same thing. I would have liked both Chase and Blackwood in the LO side but then checked their List A stats. Quite poor.

    If evin lewis played in the test team he would be at least on par with what powell has done, but his potential is so much higher and it is obviously worth a try. Would love to see
    Braithwaite
    Lewis
    Bravo
    Hope
    Chase
    Blackwood

    ^^ where to put Hetmyer?

    Aside from that, Sunil Ambris is the future.

    So I've heard that the first test against Zimbabwe starts on October 18th and we have no squad and no itinerary. I guess this is to b expected given that the two boards involved are ZC and Cricket West Indies!!

    Given the fact we have an A tour running at the same time and that we know the squad for that, I can only assume they are going to pick exactly the same test match squad as the one that toured England, maybe with Darren Bravo coming in for Kyle Hope. I guess this means Dowrich will get another tour to show his early promise wasn't an illusion.

    Hetmeyer can come in for Kyle Hope if there is no Darren Bravvo in the squad. Otherwise his education as reserve batsman can continue for now, it won't hurt him.

    Agree that Ambris looked really good today. I hope he scores lots of runs in the A team fixtures.

    He's sorted out his problems with the board now so In theory, he should be good to go. But he missed this ODI series in England because he claimed "he wasn't ready". The thinking might be that he wants to play first class cricket for Trinidad first (which starts in around five weeks or so) before coming back to the WI fold. I'd love to see him face Zim though as I think that would be a good way to get his feet wet again.

    Yeah it can't be the hardest of introductions back to test cricket.

    Lets not jinx it, but there's potentially the reality of a decent test team

    Given that Bishoo is on a bit of a decline, any chance for a Shillingford comeback? Saw him playing in CPL recently so his action surely got cleared.
