    My ideal WC squad:

    BC Lara (c)
    RR Sarwan (vc)
    D Ramdin (wk)
    S Chanderpaul
    DJJ Bravo
    MN Samuels
    KA Pollard
    CH Gayle
    DS Smith
    JE Taylor
    CD Collymore
    IDR Bradshaw
    D Mohammed
    DB Powell
    JJC Lawson

    Possibly Dwayne Smith in for one of Powell or Lawson.
    Wouldn't disagree too much with that. Some truly baffling selections (and omissions) in the provisional list, a number of whom can fairly safely be ignored (I hope!) in predicting the final 15.

    Lawson isn't in the provisional list so presumably won't figure though - like you - I'd much prefer to see him or Pedro "Wasim" Collins than Edwards or Emrit. As I think you've mentioned in one of the threads, it seems very strange that Emrit has been given a shot ahoead of someone like Kelly.

    I'd definitely have Dwayne Smith for his bowling, fielding and potential late order slogging (in that order), but not sure Devon's done quite enough. He's specialized in making starts and not going on throughout his international, list a and - latterly - first class career and may only sneak in by dint of the lack of alternatives. Morton, I think, must have batted his way out of contention, but what about Deonarine as more of a batting all-rounder?

    On the bowling side Sammy was very unlucky not to get the chance to stake his claim in India. I wonder if they'll gamble on him now. Powell will probably get the nod, particularly if they're not prepared to look outside the 30, but I'd then stick to 4 specialist seamers, supplemented by Smith and Sammy, rather than going for another 1-dimensional and erratic performer in Edwards. That would also leave room for Mohammed (though it appears the selectors are still reluctant to pick a specialist spinner) in the following squad:

    BC Lara (c)
    RR Sarwan (vc)
    D Ramdin (wk)
    S Chanderpaul
    DJJ Bravo
    MN Samuels
    KA Pollard
    CH Gayle
    N Deonarine
    D Sammy
    JE Taylor
    CD Collymore
    IDR Bradshaw
    D Mohammed
    DB Powell

    Liam Sebastien is another spin bowling all-rounder who appears to be performing well in a poor side. I seem to remember he came into the senior game with a hot reputation. Seen anything of him MR M?

    He only scored 14 and 33 IIRC in India, but he looked so good doing so, then was run out and got a good ball. I'd trust him to score runs ahead of Morton these days. I'd also say he's done more than flattered to deceive in FC cricket, seeing as his average is nigh on 40 - unheard of almost by WI batsmen - and he has 12 hundreds and 27 fifties in 75 games, which is pretty good for a West Indian also. Keep in mind too that he plays in a team whose second-best batsman is Junior Murray.

    Not sure the West Indies would take that kind of risk, and I'm not sure they'd want another batting spinner, as they have Gayle and Samuels in there already.

    I'd be very surprised if they do. He hasn't been close to the team for a really long time now. I doubt he'd leapfrog other options.

    Unsurprisingly, they're on course to ruin another promising spinner. For all people may say about him in Tests, Mohammed hasn't done much wrong in ODIs.

    He's a useful bat, but there are many who are better. And I don't rate his bowling as anything special. I rate Samuels' bowling much higher.
    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."

    How in the world would Ramnaresh Sarwan miss out on the World Cup? How in the world would Ricardo Powell make it to the World Cup? Why the hell would or should they pick Emrit? And what has Simmons done to be selected? Have you ever heard of a man named Bravo? Jerome Taylor anyone?

    This is the worst squad ever picked of all time...ever. You've lost the privilege of me trusting any of your opinions ever.

    HAHAHAHAH u are funny...

    but that is my personal feeling. I like Ricardo Powell, so I was hoping he would return back, not necessiry that these people will be selected. But I would like to see them play for WI.

    Haha, the squad was dire, but you're getting a bit fired up about it I feel. As coach Sowers would say, "Take a salt tablet."

    It's blatantly obvious that I went intentionally OTT. Wasn't it?

    You can't be a fan of the West Indies if you want Powell back in. Powell is dire.
    And it's inexcusable to exclude Sarwan, Taylor and Bravo in a West Indies WC squad.

    That explains it then. You've only watched one game.

    Get educated.
