We should win comfortably if we are able to keep our players fit. Lara could produce something special though. I hope he does anyway.
I agree. And hopefully Gayle and Bravo perform well too, they're great to watch.
Lara and Bravo (and to an extent Ramdin) the players to watch from the WI. Lara for obvious reasons, and Bravo and Ramdin to see if they continue to improve from their promising tour of Australia.

I hope they show some semblance of improvement. I mean the Windies.
If we didn't win the ODI series at least, I would be disappointed. I still think we've got work to do in tests though and the Windies will give us a decent test there I think.
The Tests will go to 5 days. The West Indies to win at least 1 ODI.
My expected touring party:
S Chanderpaul (C)
RR Sarwan (vc)
D Ramdin (wk)
DS Smith - fingers crossed
WW Hinds - hopefully to play a middle order role
D Mohammed - I think he's in with a good shot; we need to carry a spinner surely...
...and I'll go out on a limb here... JE Taylor
I half expect Lawson will be picked ahead of Taylor, but Taylor is bowling better atm, so the other half thinks they may toss him in. Granted, neither of them is bowling particularly well.
I'd like to see Richard Kelly there for the One Day Internationals. He's a very smart bowler, albeit not with a lot of pace. His batting is in the mold of Lance Klusener, if not quite as effective yet.
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."
You reckon Devon Smith can be a long-term opener for West Indies Mr Mxyztplk? I only saw him in Australia so I'm far from an expert on his ability, but he did look very gutsy and a handy grafter. Considering a shot maker like Gayle is on the other end, I think that's whats needed. He just looked suspect against raw pace as he was shaky when Lee was bowling, but he can always improve and is young.
Got a few good balls in Australia. Also played a couple of loose shots.Originally Posted by Jono
He's got good technique and is actually an aggressive batsman in domestic cricket, though he doesn't show it at international level. I think that's what ties him up at times, when he tries to curb his natural instincts and play a foil for Gayle.
Ah I see. Well hopefully he's selected again.
from what i saw of Mohammed in england wasn't that great what about Banks? Also Bradshaw dont think he would get much ppl out in test they are better of picking Lawson or Taylor ahead of him IMO.Originally Posted by Mr Mxyzptlk
Mohammed played 1 Test in England. It's pretty harsh to judge him on that, especially considering that he looked worse than he actually was because of Giles' success. The fact is that Mohammed didn't have the same rough to work with as Giles, because Giles turns the ball the other way and faced several lefthanders.Originally Posted by aussie
That said, I maintain that Dave Mohammed is not Test quality yet. He needs to flight the ball more before he reaches that stage.
Prepare to see some kisses people!
Papps is out for 6 weeks with a dislocated finger so that pretty much rules him out of the running for the tour.
