    Should probably mention that there's already been chatter of dropping a test.

    Sri Lanka’s tour to West Indies is less than a week away and yet, the players of the sub-continent nation are yet to know if they’re heading to play a Test or an ODI series or both. Gone are the days when almost the same squad would be carried across different formats and hence, players too are yet to gain clarity on if they’re touring the Caribbean islands.

    Sri Lanka are due to play three Tests with West Indies with speculations being that the third Test might be scrapped and an ODI series be slotted in to help the hosts gain financially.


    Ashley de Silva, the CEO of Sri Lanka Cricket, however stated that the tour’s not under threat owing to the financial instability of the West Indian board. “The most likely scenario is that we might reduce one of the Tests and convert that into the ODI series. They are looking at some of the alternatives,” de Silva told Cricbuzz. “We should know within the next 48 hours what exactly is happening. Converting a Test match into an ODI series will financially benefit the hosts. We are waiting to hear from West Indies to get a clear idea.”


    Sri Lanka were scheduled to play a tour match at the Brian Lara Stadium in Trinidad on May 30 before playing three Tests at Port of Spain, Gros Islet in St.Lucia and Bridgetown, Barbados.


    According to a report on Cricbuzz, WICB have urged International Cricket Council for a financial bailout. “Even we have done that in the past. What usually happens is that the ICC gives away some money and then reduces from what is owed to the board for participation in ICC events. If the ICC bailout happens, we could even see all three Tests taking place,” Cricbuzz quoted an official as saying.


    However, ESPNCricinfo claimed that the West Indies board had gone a step further to request Sri Lanka share a part of the total costs for hosting the series. “CWI are experiencing a really challenging financial year as they only have home series scheduled against us and Bangladesh,” ESPNCricinfo quoted Ashley de Silva as saying. “They have been talking to us about sharing the costs of the tour and at this stage they haven’t given us any indication that the tour might get postponed altogether.”
    Just sad.

    And of course the West Indies' financial troubles have nothing to do with decades of corrupt mismanagement. They definitely need a bailout.
    The same old story again and again.

    So Devon Smith has been recalled to the WI test team again. Absolutely dreadful decision imo, he has had ample opportunity in the past and has consistently been found wanting.

    There's also been a very sad development in the SL camp, Dananjaya de Silva's father was shot dead the other night, so Dananjaya isn't touring.

    That's really terrible news for him and for the SL cricket community as a whole.

    I'm really sorry to hear this. That's terrible.

    Most boring squad announcement ever. We had outstanding A team performances from Keemo Paul, Rakheem Cornwall and Jamal Warrican yet the only one who gets picked is Jahmar Hamilton who also averaged 16 in the FC season. In regards to Devon, he earned his call up, none of the youngsters made any runs at all to force their hand and Devon completely owned the FC season. Normally I wouldn't like it but I don't see what alternative they had. They are also trying to show that outstanding FC performances will be rewarded (but yet they won't pick Cornwall or Paul?).

    I guess the team will be:

    Braithwaite
    Smith
    Hetmeyer
    Hope
    Chase
    Powell/Hamilton
    Dowrich
    Holder
    Bishoo
    Roach
    Gabriel

    The test team (minus the NZ tour) has been really improving so I hope they continue that trend. It would be nice to see them invest in youngsters like Cornwall and Paul though, that's my biggest gripe.

    Sad that WICB and Darren Bravo couldn't work it out.

    Bravo, Hope and Chase would have been a formidable 3-5
    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    YEah. He's still big but has lost a lot of weight. They sent him to America and he has a nutritionist etc. He bowls more overs than most in every game he plays so at the least his cricket fitness is up to the mark.

    Yep. In fairness to the WICB they tried selecting him but I think the damage was done. Darren Bravo doesn't trust them and so is taking contracts from others as and when they come, just like his brother. David Cameron messed up massively in the first place but now it's Darren that is stopping progress.

    Dhananjaya pulled out of series after his dad was killed who was a politician. If he was a Pakistani, There would have been questions at his selection rather than mourning the dead soul
