View Full Version : WI play 4 pace attack!
December 7, 2002, 08:02 PM
This is WI official team:
Chanders is back. But dont worry, he tends to underperform against the weaker teams for some reason. My predictions are for D Powell to get 5 wickets and Sarwan to get his maiden test ton. Ashraful will get 2 50's for you guys, because he is quality!

Probably a good idea to play four pacers. Our batsmen struggle against quick bowling, and the West Indies doesn't really have a quality spinner to bowl us out.
This is the best chance we are going to have to score some runs against a Test side. We are playing an inexperienced bowling attack on unhelpful pitches. So far, we have mostly played the likes of Murali and Kaneria in the subcontinent and Pollock and Ntini abroad. We just have to apply ourselves really well.

The training camp with be run by Shanto and Manju.
Manju will teach the bowlers to bowl but not to disturb the batsmen at any time while Shanto will teach him the art of NO BALL, WIDE and WIDER balls.
I see good prospect for this program and strongly suggest that all the opposing bowlers go through this program before they play our batsmen. We need to make it mandatory.

The pitch has turned out to be a better pitch - that has better bounce than the one day series - with this pitch not being disturbed while football was going on in Dhaka stadium, there is no "LOW" bounce whatsoever.
