View Full Version : It is soooo boring to watch WI

Being a hardcore WI fan, it has took great patience to watch matches involving WI. With their non-stop non-sense attitude to always lose, be it a one-sided terrible match or a close contest, it was hard to enjoy their game for WI as a team. Enjoying their cricket has been limited to some players' personal flairs. During Lara's era, he was enough to attract crowd. Then came Gayle, a few fast bowlers and in some extent the likes of Sarwan and Chanderpaul.

But everything has gone with the current squad. Gayle has such a terrible attitude towards cricket that he should stop playing international cricket. Pollard is 10 times overhyped than our Ashraful. He reminds me of Phillo Wallace from the inauguaral knock out world cup at Dhaka. He is good for a 30-40 and that is not enough to win WI even an ODI. Their pace bowling stock is almost zero, except the raw pace of Kemar Roach. He is nothing extra-ordinary as well, even our pathetic batsmen can play him. As a West Indies fan, it kills all interest for their cricket to see people like Dowlin opening the batting while the team is chasing a 300+ total.

Well, some fans will say that it is also boring watching Bangaldesh. Both teams have the same weaknesses and attitude. Remember, WI is playing against the top ODI team in the world and they are missing more than 6 of their best players due to injuries, BRavo, Chanderpaul, Edwards, Taylor and Sarwan, also Roach was injured. IMO, they still did not do badly, they did not get bulldozed as I was expecting. but I do agree that Gayle has lost it somewhat

The key ingredient is missing. Bravo brothers. This team would Gel. Play fine again. Gayle is a lose cannon. He is paying the price now for his big mouthing.

Take out Sakib, an alrounder. The best we got. See where we stand. Down with the Irelands.

I was checking the average of those players, except Gayle every player at every position averages lower than the similar BD batter.
