    We need a team with common sense, after seeing that their bowlers were ineffective in the washed out 1st ODI vs India and that against the Afghans they were horrible in the chase.
    Why after winning the toss they have elected to put the Indians into bat, are they afraid to face a new ball on a fresh pitch, what are they seeing or are they just simply afraid of batting first. What information are the getting from grounds curator regarding the pitches.
    There’s more to the game than holding the bat, running up with a ball, it’s a tactical game, field placing, bowling to the field etc. among others.

    @Rose Where are the NEW players to make up your NEW team

    I agree with Clyde, cricket is a tactical game (using your head). They like to chase run and of course loss the quality edge in bowling like in the matches against Afghanistan and Pakistan. No secret spinners in Indian team. K. Powell should be given a break and bring in Blackwood. J. Mohammed should go back down the order. some of the team batsmen have lost they confidence. Hope is gaining his confidence back and R. Chase is regaining his touch. We need a steady opening pair, not without Hope. The bowling coach Rody Estwick needs to keep his bowler focus focus…, like the in the Pakistan series, putting the balls in the right areas. Jason holder can bowled much much better than he did in the 2 ODI. The WI need more fire power. I would play K. Williams before M. Cummins. you have a good bowler and someone who can give you a regular 20 or 30 or leave out Bishoo and keep Cummins. Taylor is available why is he not considered for selection. finally. i wish the well in the remaining ODIs and the 20/20. In addition, is Shane Shillingford no in contention or will ever play for the WI again, he is still one of the top spinners and a lower order batsmen in the WI.

    Sherlock, you are correct, but the WI seamers appear to be bowling with their gonads, not their heads. It was pathetic to watch medium pacers like Holder and Cummins bowling short-pitched balls continuously trying to intimidate the Indian batsmen, and paying the price for it. Equally pathetic was how early the WI batsmen seemed to give up the chase, all except Hope, whom I thought batted very well. To watch Nurse poking in the penultimate over was depressing: not even trying! Time to bring back Blackwood and Chanderpaul. Cummins out, Jerome Taylor in. Agreed re. Shillingford. But, as for ‘firepower’, there is none in WI cricket. Lot of nice jewellry though!

    Who for a cricket fan would waste time and money watching WI cricket?

    Time to break up CWI.

    Useless freeloading administrators only interested in the perks and ill-perceived power they hold over those cricketers who must “know their place”.

    The Entire WIBC needs to resign . Until then I will never go to watch W I again . If the Board stays as is then all the players should refuse to play simple . I hope India White washes them . Serve them right

  9. Derek June 26, 2017 at 8:23 pm

    All WI players should refuse to play any cricket under the current Board . For playing they should lose bad . Serve them right . After Afghanistan I ashamed of them . Some of the players should resign too because they just playing rubbish
