AfCrow and his fellow trough-dwellers have presided over such a decline that they're hailing this victory over the Lions as the second coming of the Messiah....
:lol:
Baby steps...this is a good start, but it's at home on spinning tracks against a side notorious for its inability to play spin.

The Selection Panel of Cricket West Indies announced on Friday a 13-member WINDIES “A” squad for three One-day matches against England Lions on March 6, 9 and 11 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground here.

SQUAD
Kieran Powell (Captain)
Jahmar Hamilton (Vice Captain)
Jermaine Blackwood
Roston Chase
Rahkeem Cornwall
Chandrapaul Hemraj
Kavem Hodge
Andre McCarthy
Keemo Paul
Raymon Reifer
Romario Shepherd
Odean Smith

LOL hole on!!!..you mean massa still SOUR over Warri putting LICKS pon him? :lol: :lol: :lol: And duncy you're not making sense. MAKING HOME CONDITIONS COUNT IS THE NAME OF THE GAME!!!..and for too long we've not been doing that because we've been intent on creating "quick" tracks that suit the likes of England, NZ, SA and Aus, whilst the Asian sides would come over and spin us into trouble. Now hopefully folks will see that spinning tracks Is the way forward for us and we will begin to push this game-plan at the senior level too. The key to all this is finding a long-term allrounder In the mold of Dwayne Bravo though, that is the next step so we can have three pacers and two spinners at all times.

AFRO is the feeling that in a 'spinners track' shootout at test level West Indies batsmen will fare better than the opposition batters? Not withstanding that it is early in the year for the tourists what struck me during the England Lions tour was the question of how many of the (uncapped) West Indies A players will kick on to become 'winning' seniors?

So AfCrow now realises it was a mistake to drop Big Bravo, because we're still searching for "a long-term allrounder In the mold of Dwayne Bravo".
8-)
He's a big miss from the ODI side, which is one of the reasons why we're currently playing World Cup prelims now...look wha' we come to, eh?

The 'a' team is giving us hope, but as howsdat says, "how many of the (uncapped) West Indies A players will kick on to become 'winning' seniors?"

In the first of three ODIs at Coolidge, the 'a' team beat the England Lions by five runs. Jermaine Blackwood hit 99, and allrounder Rahkeem Cornwall 44, to propel the West Indies to 272 all out, as Curran, Gleeson, Coughlin and Parkinson all took two wickets each. Cornwall took two wickets, but the star of the show was medium pacer Keemo Paul, who snared 5-49 to dismiss the Lions for 267 all out. Sam Hain hit 144 and Nick Gubbins 52.

Well if we do the maths, it's evident that we're producing more competent spinners than the likes of NZ, SA, England and Australia. So logic would tell us that if our tracks are conducive to spin, why not use that to our advantage? Bangladesh are a prime example of doing this In recent times and Sri-lanka have done it for years. By playing two spinners, it puts less pressure on our pacers and would put us in a unique situation where selectors would only need to pick the two best quicks In the region.

As for the batting In this series. Well Hammy done his case no harm and Brooks done Ok suppose. But apart from that it wasn't too encouraging. Tbh I'm more encouraged by the younger guys like Carty, Cato, Jangoo, Chanderpaul, Allen, King, Cariah, Hodge, Webster etc than the most of the guys in the current A-team.

This series is really about Cornwell, Warrican and Paul. Paul is so impressive it's incredible, just needs to get more consistent with his batting and imo we have our own Ben Stokes.

Lastly, who knows how our batsmen would fair better In a spin shootout? The whole point is we'd at least have a philosophy at home that all the players could understand. And at least we'd be In conditions our players are familiar with If a shootout transpires. The more we stick at it, the better we should get. Not saying we should making ragging turners, just keep things as they are and employ the two spinner strategy, that's all. No need to fight against what our tracks are giving us.

No-one is denying that Dwayne was a world class player. But when you openly say "IPL, Trini and WI last", and the come out and diss Davey In public, you know full well that LICKS WILL BE SERVED!!. Di Pm did try to talk to him just like we tried with Darren, but when these men start making money it's seems like they feel they can do anything and get away with it :roll: .

He's In the past anyway, let's focus on the FUTURE and that future is very much Keemo Paul and Sharmer Springer 8-) .

can anyone argue that this isn't a great step In the right direction for our cricket?


How does it help BWI rankings..........

Better yet, this is the A squad that went to India and drew a three *Test series in 2013.

K Bratihwaite
K Powell
L Johnson
N Deonarine
K Edwrads
A Fuddadin
J Carter
J Hamiltom
C Walton
N Miller
A Nurse
V Permaul
D Johnson
M Cummins

Who among them has moved BWI cricket in the right direction, and how many have seen their careers stagnate, and in some cases go backwards, over the last 4 years :?:

Indeed, Gils, how many of these guys will get lost between the cracks? AfCrow, since this side is made up of the new Messiahs, couldn't the trough-dwellers at the WICB persuade some school children to attend the matches at Coolidge? There are more people on the field than off it....
8-)
Yet another day, yet another West Indies victory...it's been a long time since I said that about a series against England.

The 'A' team wrapped up the ODI series against the England Lions with a 25-run win in the second match at Coolidge. Jermaine Blackwood continued his good ODI form with 53, and allrounder Keemo Paul chipped in with 55, to rescue the home team from 79-5 and propel them to 256-9. Sam Curran took 3-41 and Gleeson 3-52.

Paul returned to take 3-55 with his medium pacers and the scourge of the Lions batting, left-arm spinner Jomel Warrican, 3-41, to dismiss England for 231 all out, Sam Northeast, Keaton Jennings and Davies all hitting 30s.

The England Lions ended their tour of the Caribbean with a consolation seven-wicket win over the West Indies 'A' team at Coolidge.

Parkinson took 4-26 to dismiss the West Indians for a paltry 166 all out, Roston Chase topscoring with 67. Hain then hit 54 not out and Davies 48, as the Lions romped to victory with 19 overs to spare. Offspinner Rahkeem Cornwall took two wickets.
