    I would like to know from the selectors how do they select a team to represent the West Indies in a test match against India. There must be something wrong with my thinking that would lead me to believe that the team selected could be competitive against Anyone . I am convinced that the selectors have inhaled something that has effectively caused brain damage or something worse.
    I really thought we were trying to build a team .I had actually started to get interested in WI cricket again, but it seem as though I like many others now realize we are falling further and further behind because of this bunch of incompetent selectors none of whom would appear to be qualified enough to be in such a position.

    I would have included Warrican or Narine, as well as Shai Hope. There is no sense discarding a fella with an average of 30 for another with an average of 30. Smho!!
