Hey guys, haven't been on here in awhile but you'll probably be seeing me often when the WI Vs Bang series draws closer. As some of you already know I am a WI fan but you guys have just dodged a bullet today with news that our fast bowler Kemar Roach is injured and will be replaced by the inferior Fidel Edwards.

Take it easy now guys, you might actually have a chance of beating us. :P

Our wickets generally don't depend on quality of bowling, rather on the mood of our batsmen.......they are generally generous ..:)

Just as an extension to this thread, what are your predictions for the outcome of this series? List your predicted players performances or match outcomes. :)

Don't worry, I'm sure Fiedel will expose our batsmen as if they were never wearing clothes to begin with.

After the match the excuse would be that the team did not have enough time to analyze Fidel Edwards hence our batsmen were unprepared for him.

doesnt matter... we will make fidel look like steyn and pattinson put together... he could very well get two five for and one ten for.

We would have preferred Roach...he was whipped like a little boy last time he was in BD...Fidel however could pose some problems!

No worries, we are always 'preparing' for the opposition's main bowlers but end up being blown by the 3rd or 4th best bowler in the team.

True, last time fidel was giving us hard time while Kemar was all over the place.

Other than the worldcup match, i dont think Roach was ever effective against Bangladesh. Its Rampaul and Edwards who can damage Bangladesh more.

Kemar Roach is the better bowler but v Bangladesh it really doesn't matter; as long as you stay patient the batsmen will live up to their reputation. Don't forget about Tino '95 MPH' Best as well. Just by watching his run-up our batsmen will make a mess in their pants.

Bangla wash awaits for the West Indians in ODI. We smoked KR in your back yards last time. This time the others will be treated the same away.

As fans, I hope, we have learned how to curtail the emotion that we inherently possess. Realistically, in spin-friendly pitches and with no dropped catches Bangladesh has a chance (I assume that Gayle and Samuels will be using this series to bolster their records and hitting the balls as if they are playing T20). One other factor to consider is the BD side is not all Shakib-centric anymore and has Mushy and Nasir to back him up. Tamim’s occasional batting blitzkrieg, once in every three matches, will be a plus. I do not expect BD to win either the test or ODI series, however, if they show some consistency and exhibit their willingness to fight and make some games close, that would be good enough. ffice:office" /><?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com<img src=" /><o:p></o:p>

So, 1 bad World Cup (Consisting of 2 matches, T20Is!) and people are all down? This is still our best chance of winning a Test match. Home conditions, West Indies, fairly decent previous record at home. When was the last time we had so much on our sides?
...
Tough luck for Kemar Roach by the way. He said somewhere that he was eagerly waiting for this series. Better luck next time.

I think the real bullets(s) are Gayle, Bravo, Chanderpaul, Narine, Samuels & Rampaul. People might not believe me but Rampaul might cause some headaches for our batsmen.

Gayle, in tests, will be hit or miss. Chanderpaul will be a problem. Samuels will pose a lot of threat with his ongoing form. Something tells me, Narine is going to fail and fail badly. Rampaul will be very effective despite the pitch conditions favouring the spin bowlers more.

my exact guesses... :ohno:
I feel like Rampaul, Samuels, Kirk will be our biggest threat with the possibility of a Gayle storm

Gayle is a hit and miss in tests?! He has an avarage of 42 in tests...

His standards? He recently cracked a 150 and 64* in a test match against NZ in July of this year. That test series is the last test series he has played in. So he is 'currently' in form by any standards.

Great thread....

I guess that Windies fans are down about this bit of news because Roach has 82 wickets from 21 Tests at an impressive average of just under 27, while Fidel has 158 wickets from 54 Tests at an expensive average of over 38....

But the point is a valid one - on last year's tour, Fidel took eight wickets at an average of 30.50, while Roach could only manage one wicket at 101!
:o
Still, Roach is 24, while Fidel is over 30, and while he's still fast, he's not as quick as he used to be, and because he doesn't swing the ball much, good batsmen should be able to score off him. The Aussies scored runs with ease against him in the Caribbean....

al Furqaan
November 4, 2012, 07:05 AM
But Fidel, due to his action can get reverese swing which is useful in Asian conditions. That action also makes bouncers and yorkers more deceptive. Edwards had a lot of success last year with his short ball and I think it was due to the batsman not being able to pick the length early enough.

Roach on the other hand doesn't seem to have much swing and perhaps relies on seam movement. I think he was just off form when we played last year. He was bowling all over the place. Roach is defintely the better bowler, but Fidel on his day can wreck the best lineups.
