    Absolutely, saw this game, he was bowling with good heat and getting the ball to move around a bit that day. Knocked James Miller over with one full fast and straight

    What would the logic be in not playing them in venues where you’ll get a large number of people turn up though?

    Tage seems to score runs but I doubt they will open him with kraigg as they both score quite slow
    The fact that there is hardly any Guyanese player in here is because we perform as a team.

    All eleven players are standing up and performing. We even beat a full strength (almost WI team) the other day.

    Tage grinds em down like a coconut mill. Which allows the likes of Bramble to express themselves.

    Leon Johnson is another Darren Ganga. Tactical genius, but nothing much with the bat.

    Permaul, the senior bowler then takes over along with pacers Pestano and Shepherd.
    Gudakesh Motie-Kanhai makes an appearance once in a while.

    I can't say how valuable Raymon Reifer is to the team.

    Guyana have the blueprint of success. That's why we're defending champions for four years in a row.

    Full Scorecard of West Indies President's XI vs England Tour Match 2019 - Score Report | ESPNcricinfo.com

    Root looks in good nick.

    Why is Bairstow opening?

    Why is Woakes playing away from home?

    Happy new year Gimp!

    Has there ever been a West Indies Vice President, or Board Secretary's XI? Just an idle question to keep the thread going

    The places where West Indians actually turn up to watch test cricket are Jamaica, Trinidad and Guyana. By placing it where they have they have basically admitted that the priority is English fans turning up. Sensible economically but not exactly putting your own first.

    I think there has to be a test against England in Barbados. The money it must make economically is huge, not just in the stadium but across the whole island before during and after the game. There was 10000 England fans when I went there 3 years ago.
    The money generated should be shared between islands as cricket boards so it's not just Barbados making money of the travelling English.

    Would think Buttler is an almost certainty to play. Vice captain, averaging 45 since he returned to the side. Great influence on the team and Root. You don't invest on bringing Buttler back in the team and then dump him when he's been going great.

    I think we can fairly safely discount Woakes, Denly or Stone from serious consideration for the first test. Everyone else is in the mix for selection.

    Having said that, if anyone who does make runs on this pitch against the England seamers will have made a real case for themselves.

    Agreed. IT's more the absence of T & T, Jamaica and Guyana that bugs me.

    Guyana is hardly a tourist destination for the English.

    They just want to enjoy the blue waters and the white Sandy beaches.

    Over here we have brown water and brown sand.
