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."
Maybe a try in the last game of the group stage?
At the moment it's:
as sure picks for me.
Corey Collymore is a certainty. Can't believe you left him out.
Dwayne Bravo, anyone? Come on! He must be there.
At least one of Edwards, Lawson or Powell will be there too. Possibly 2. You'd also expect Dave Mohammed to be there.
It's pathetic that Collins isn't in the probables. The selectors are worthless.
My ideal WC squad:
BC Lara (c)
RR Sarwan (vc)
D Ramdin (wk)
Possibly Dwayne Smith in for one of Powell or Lawson.
Anyway I agree with your squad except I think Morton will get in over Devon Smith with Dwayne coming in for Lawson. Powell has performed well enough that the selectors would regard him higher than Lawson going into the WC unless the latter starts not just taking wickets but absoluely destroying teams.
Carlton Baugh has never had genuine success in OD cricket. He averages less than 20 in List-A matches!
He has 2 fifties in 43 innings. Ramdin not only averages over 27, but he has 3 fifties in 38 innings and a SR of about 10 runs more in ODI cricket.
Baugh averages 15.50 with a SR of 69.40 in ODI cricket.
Ramdin averages 27.46 with a SR of 79.33 in ODI cricket.
And on recent form Baugh has been even worse than his career record suggests.
Neither has been particularly good with the gloves lately, but Ramdin has looked good more often than Baugh has in his career.
Baffling that Baugh is a safer bet than Ramdin in your mind.
ATM I just prefer Baugh to Ramdin. Not much between them though.Originally Posted by Mr Mxyzptlk
You never know with West Indies selectors.Originally Posted by Mr Mxyzptlk
What about the bowlers in the WI squad ?.Would I be right in thinking that these are the bowlers in contention.
Any up and coming young WI bowlers trying to push for a place in the WC squad.What about the chances of more established names like
and that pacey but wayward bowler Tino Best
Pedro Collins has been bowling superbly of late, but he's not in the provisional 30. I'd certainly prefer him to Edwards in the squad. Deighton Butler may never play for the West Indies again. Not quite up to it, IMO.
On further review you do have a point.
