    West Indies, prospects?

    Not confirmed yet, but the likely squad:

    Brian Lara (captain)
    Ramnaresh Sarwan (vice captain)
    Carlton Baugh (wicketkeeper)
    Chris Gayle
    Shivnarine Chanderpaul
    Wavell Hinds
    Runako Morton
    Marlon Samuels
    Dwayne Bravo
    Dwayne Smith
    Ian Bradshaw
    Jerome Taylor
    Fidel Edwards
    Corey Collymore

    On paper WI could do well once again, but they could equally be thrashed by Bangladesh. This squad is stronger than the one that won the last tourney though.

    Morton > Powell
    Samuels = Joseph
    Taylor > Sammy
    Edwards > Dillon
    Baugh > Browne
    Smith > Hinds (as an allrounder)
    2006 Bravo > 2004 Bravo
    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."

    One thing that worked to our advantage last time was that we were in England for quite a while not long before the tourney so we were used to the conditions. Different this time around. Although if the draw is kind and the players can perform in the pressure situations the West Indies could repeat.

    The conditions in England for the last CT were not the same as they were during the summer.

    Ramdin was struggling in ODIs earlier this year, so they brought in Baugh and he played very well. So Baugh is the ODI incumbent.

    Samuels >> Joseph

    Their win in the champions trophy last time was unexpected & they played good cricket in those couple of matches & won the tournament. Its a bit longer this time it will be interesting to see how they go, but i'd say its highly unlikely thats they will defend it.

    Joseph is a much better batsman now than he has been in past years. He certainly showed that against England 'A' earlier this year. Samuels is a shadow of the batsman he was on his last tour to India, so at this stage, he's only even with Joseph, if not less.

    Samuels = Joseph.

    for sure, Baugh was looking good vs India earlier this year But Ramdin has a more level head, he should be recalled pretty soon.
