    Hate to say it but if the pitch is like the one against SL you might only see half a days cricket!

    Presidents XI squad for the tour match:

    John Campbell, Chandrapaul Hemraj,Jermaine Blackwood, Sunil Ambris, Vishaul Singh, Jahmar Hamilton (captain), Devon Thomas, Raymon Reifer, Bryan Charles, Miguel Cummins, Chemar Holder, Alzarri Joseph

    They've picked 2 wicket keepers. Really odd. I swear they just draw names out of a hat. No Cornwall in the lineup for the first time in ages. Either he's in the test squad or they've decided he's too fat.

    In other news, we know that Shamarh Brooks has been invited to the Windies training camp. He was the best batsman on the last A tour but has struggled this year and averages 33 with 5 FC centuries after 12 years. Very odd and is the type of call that fuels the Bajan bias calls that reverberate around the Caribbean.

    Only room for one minor county player, it would seem.

    When Rakheem Cornwall vacates something there's usually plenty of space left behind

    No Carty. No Athanaze. No solozano.
    No Rahkeem?

    Would loved to see Tage in there as well.

    No early for bramble?

    Standard mistifying selection. Unfortunately we've become used to it.

    England batting in the warm up.



    Doesn't look very experimental. My guess is they will leave out Woakes for Anderson in the final XI. Would be surprised if they don't find room for Buttler but no idea who for.

    I have to admit when I look at that all I see is a bunch of keepers and all rounders and no actual batsmen, besides Root.

    Root with 87.

    The run-rate is wicked.

    4.36

    Windies squad for the 1st test had been announced. It's not actually THAT bad by our selectors standards. The test series might just be more competitive than I thought.

    Jason Holder (capt), Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Shamarh Brooks, John Campbell, Roston Chase, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shimron Hetmyer, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph Kemar Roach, Jomel Warrican, Oshane Thomas (cover for Joseph)

    Powell and Bishoo have rightly been dropped. They can have no complaints. Keemo Paul is more unlucky, he just took 10 wickets in his last FC match. He can't be far off selection. Shame not to see Cornwall, I would love to hear more about that.

    The headline is clearly Bravo's return, which is a huge boost to our middle order. Shamarh Brooks feels like a strange pick to me but he'll only warm the bench. Campbell is the next cab off the rank in terms of openers. Not ideal as he never converts starts. Will be entertaining though.

    Overall a very strong seam bowling group but poor batting and spin options.

    So the XI will be something like:

    Braithwaite
    Campbell
    Hope
    Bravo
    Chase
    Hetmeyer
    Dowrich
    Holder
    Roach
    Joseph/Warrican
    Gabriel

    Sub Brooks

    We already have spin in Chase and Brathwaite.

    We need to go with five pacers.
