Tamim back in Lords again.

Shakib is also in.

The West Indies team is full strength headed by Brathwaite:

Samuel Badree, Carlos Brathwaite (capt), Rayad Emrit, Andre Fletcher, Chris Gayle, Evin Lewis, Ashley Nurse, Keemo Paul, Rovman Powell, Denesh Ramdin (wk), Andre Russell, Marlon Samuels, Kesrick Williams


This should be an exciting encounter.

I miss the Asia vs World XI games.. imagine if it took place now!

Asia XI would look like this:

Tamim
Rohit
Kohli (c)
Babar
Mushy(wk)
Shakib
Thisara
Ashwin
Rashid
Amir
Bumrah


and World XI something like,

Amla
Finch
Root (c)
Taylor
AB
Bairstow (wk)
Adil
Rabada
Starc
Hazzlewood
Boult

should be a cracker

Not a bad lineup.. but Tamim averaging 69 in last one year certainly makes the XI before Pererra and Mujeeb is way too early in my opinion. And I left Warner and Smith out. Otherwise obviously they would be replacing Finch and Taylor

I know right. Since Narine is not a contracted Windies player, he can't play. This match holds T20I status.

Won't pay their players a good wage, yet expects full domestic cricket commitments. Is it possible there is a board more incompetent than BCB?

aklemalp
May 29, 2018, 03:43 PM
russle is also not under wicb contract right?

No, but he played in the regional Super 50 (don't know how this qualifies him to play T20Is, probably it's because Windies contracts are categorized as follows: all formats, red ball, white ball).

This makes him a candidate for selection to the national tean.

aklemalp
May 29, 2018, 03:45 PM

It's simple. All he had to do was made a commitment (play in the domestic competition), and he'd be selected.

Trinis, I tell yah.

aklemalp
May 29, 2018, 03:51 PM
Furthermore, look at Ramdin. He made the right decision, and he played on the domestic competition. He was selected for the Pakistan series, and impressed.

Now looks like he's gonna have a revival of his career. Great move from him.

*I'm for the right path. I'm not against all the trinis*

Those pitches that had something for spinners, he used it completely. But for a bouncy pitch like Deradun just playing him cautiously would suffice.

I don't have a problem playing him cautiously. But if you get stuck and start coming down the track or slog sweeping; you will ask for trouble. As I said somewhere else, Rashid, as a pacy leggie, will give you short balls, you can hit them. Once you're set and are picking his wrong ones; you can play straight down the ground as well. Just don't try to over-hit from the very first ball.
