    You're saying de Grooth will, then? *shudders*

    Maybe have ten Doeschate as a pinch hitter and de Leede at five. He'll be 39 when the WC comes around, tho.

    Lets face it, the only reason you're saying anything about Davison is because he's Australian.

    Nope, Tikolo's recnet all round efforts isn't as good as Davison's recnet all round efforts

    So what exactly are the recnet (or even recent) efforts then, since he's not played for Canada in a fair while?

    Well the last time he played for Canada was the ICC Trophy:
    312 runs@ 44.57
    6 wkts @ 35.66

    Before that it was two years ago in the InterCont Cup and Americas Cup

    The Scots turn...

    Likey XI:

    1. DF Watts
    2. DR Lockhart
    3. RR Watson
    4. CV English
    5. CJO Smith (wk)
    6. DR Brown
    7. GM Hamilton
    8. KJ Coetzer
    9. PJC Hoffmann
    10. CM Wright
    11. JAE Blain

    Strengths
    - Two FC standard fast bowlers in Blain and Brown
    - Three decent all rounders in Brown, Hamilton and Watson, add a lot of depth to the side
    - Match harded side with their National League experience in the last two years
    - Very long batting line up with Coetzer having a FC batting average of 37 for Durham. Will probably bat at eight cus his List A average is only 14 and they have a fairly strong middle order. Also Hoffman has opened the batting, but i can't see going well there aganist Australia or South Africa. And Wright also averages over 20 in List A (knock outs boost his average though). So they effectively bat down to 10.

    Weakness
    - A lot of their best players are past their prime and nearing the end of their careers
    - Lack a decent spinners, they got Greg Maiden, but he bowls pies.
    - A lot of their batsmen average around 20 in List A, but lack a real world class batsmen.

    Prediction
    - Should be a lot more competitive then they were in '99, they have a lot more contributers now then they have back then. But will rely on Watson, Brown, Hamilton and Blain to do something special to win a game.

    West Indies

    (My)Likely XII:

    CH Gayle
    RS Morton
    BC Lara
    RR Sarwan (C)
    S Chanderpaul
    WW Hinds/DR Smith
    DJJ Bravo
    D Ramdin (wk)
    IDR Bradshaw
    CD Collymore/PT Collins
    FH Edwards

    12th Man: R Kelly

    Alternatively, Daren Ganga could be the captain by then, thus adding some problems to the selection meeting. If Chanderpaul is captain of the West Indies for the WC, I might support Ireland instead.

    Strengths:
    - With Lara/Sarwan/Chanderpaul/Gayle, the batting is extremely potent, especially on West Indian pitches and chasing.
    - The batting has good depth with Bradshaw at number 8.
    - If Edwards continues to improve as he has in recent times, and attack of Bradshaw/Collymore/Collins/Edwards/Bravo/Gayle can be quite handy.
    - With Collymore and Collins fit, the choice for the first XI seam attack is quite interesting.
    - Gayle is the lone decent "spin" option.
    - Home crowd and Lara on a curtain call mission.

    Weaknesses:
    - Prone to devastating and embarrassing collapses.
    - Easily deflated in the field.
    - Captaincy in general.

    Hopefully our broken Chanderpaul is fixed by 2007.

    Prediction:
    - Dark horse for the semifinal round.

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."

    I'd agree with this but I'm pretty sure Smith or Hinds will be 12th man. Maybe even Ricardo Powell. How's Kelly's fielding skills? With regards to spin, Sarwan said he's been doing a lot more work on it so he might be given a roll of the arm a couple times.

    Sarwan doesn't bowl often enough at any level to become an option for ODI cricket (IMO). He'd have to become captain before he's taken seriously as a spin option.

    Regarding Ricardo Powell, I don't see any possible way that he can make it back into the West Indies team for the World Cup. There are at least 30 players ahead of him at the moment.

    Yep. West Indies are definitely in with a chance considering they're at home. They have a very strong batting attack, possibly 2nd after the Australians. As long as they stay focused an attack of Gayle, Lara, Sarwan, Bravo, Chanderpaul, etc should be able to make consistent scores over 250. The only thing that could let them down is bowling. Edwards is fiery and Collymore is accuarate but they need to be more consistent.

    For mine. Collymore is a legend and deserves selection. Collins is improving.. Edwards had a pretty good tour to NZ. Bradshaw is good without being great. Some tough choices.
