I've seen enough of Powell to know that he has a lot of ability. The skill that he lacks is discipline, and that's pretty much the most important thing as a fast bowler. Powell has bowled some truly beautiful spells in Tests previously, but has never been remotely consistent enough to be considered remotely close to Test class. The fact that he was picked consistently by West Indies anyway seemed to point to an insecurity, and a lack of faith in the alternatives, rather than any particular faith in Powell. Aside from Roach, the cupboard is still pretty bare.Powell doesn't have many gifts, and doesn't bowl well often. I think he must be cousins with someone on the WICB.
And Ganga's been picked for the team previously too. He failed and was discarded and they tried Marshall, who has failed and been discarded. Your point doesn't seem to be very strong really. If you're talking about Marshall's domestic record before he was picked, I think you'll find that Ganga did similarly precious little before he was first picked for West Indies.My point with Marshall was lost on you, he's been picked for the test team previously despite a extremely modest first class record.
The fact is that at this stage, Ganga's record is a lot worse than others in the position. Even Travis Dowlin, for all his mediocrity, is ahead of him. And justifiably so.
