Ever since the 80's there is an obsession with off spinners in Australia, with very little evidence to back it up. Literally every set of selectors go down this route when faced with a tour of Australia. As if a crap off spinner is going to be a better option than a promising left arm spinner?
I think it's just Haynes' transparent lie for picking one of his countrymen. Harper averaged 40 here and he had a superb FC record, Hooper averaged 64 and there's literally no-one else worth considering. You still have to be good enough no matter what style, and Chase patently isn't.

Completely agree. As soon as Rakheem was not being considered, they should have gone for Moti.

That CAxi batting line-up was stacked jeez. Pierson, Inglis, Matt short and silk are all gun at state level.
Haha they weren't so much back then though. Kind of what you would hope to see 7 years later, that your side of promising youngsters kicked on a bit

Wi won't win a game. Their bowling attack is poor as per the warm up now. Aus bowling attack world class with Boland.
Your first sentence is very likely but the rest of your post is ****ing stupid and you should feel bad for typing it out. For shame.

Can see Smith scoring big runs and Chase at some stage collecting a quick couple, but meaningless wickets that the selectors will try to justify as evidence for his selection.

Tage scoring only 4 means that they'll play Brooks as the opener? This is probably gonna be a blessing in disguise for Tage.

For some reason I tend to watch most WI Tests because of the time they are broadcast in SA,so I've been following Chase from the start of his career. I don't know at what point the regression occurred but he is not the same batsman that can bat put a day for a 100 anymore. I get why Cornwall is on the outs,there is no way he passes most fitness tests because of his bulk,but if he bowls offies,bats at 8 and is in the slips I still would prefer him to any other spinner I've seen from WI in the last 10 years.
