well it is really TD you know.  he is on and on about promoting Holder up the order.  so I am looking at his idea for whatever merit it might have given that we are stuck with Holder.

my real choice is to drop Holder altogether..along  with samules.  I  wud do that right now..on tour. 

I wud send home for wats his name..Bishs left arm spin twin..his  name slips me.  get him there and play him.. jet lag or not... so  we have 4 bowlers along with chase. 

 Permaul!  right

but that wont wat to do with Holder..#1 or #4 then,.  gih him ah chance to bat his  way to relevance

Yes I would drop them as well.

Permy should always be ahead of Benn especially after he developed many variations.

Permy for ODIs not tests as he does not really turn it.

West Indies A's bowlers combined to pick up a 165-run win in the first unofficial ODI against Sri Lanka A in Dambulla. The win was set up by their new-ball pair of Ronsford Beaton and Delorn Johnson, whose early strikes broke the back of Sri Lanka's chase of 268. Offspinner Jon-Russ Jaggesar then accelerated Sri Lanka A's slide with wickets of the middle and lower order; he finished with career-best figures of 4 for 29 as Sri Lanka A were bowled out for 102.

After electing to bat, West Indies A compiled 267 over two days, as rain intervened to push the match into a reserve day, just 12.5 overs into the innings. The innings was built around three important contributions. Opening batsman Kyle Hope set up the platform by holding his end amid frequent strikes. He top-scored with 81. West Indies A captain Jason Mohammed and Rovman Powell provided the late thrust with half-centuries.

West Indies A began the reserve day on 69 for 2. Hope resumed on 28, with Andre Fletcher, on 7, for company. The two added another 42 for the third wicket, before Fletcher fell to the left-arm spin of Milinda Siriwardana. Hope added 63 with Mohammed for the fourth wicket before being bowled by Amila Aponso, the left-arm spinner. By that time, he had got to his second half-century and his List A career-best score. Powell then joined Mohammed and slammed 55 off just 35 balls, hitting three fours and as many sixes. Both Mohammed and Powell fell in the last over, but their efforts had helped West Indies A slap 93 in the last 10 overs.

Beaton and Johnson took the first four wickets within seven overs of the chase to leave Sri Lanka A reeling at 26 for 4. Jaggesar entered the wickets column when he broke a 23-run fifth-wicket stand - the highest Sri Lanka A could put together - by dismissing Minod Bhanuka. He added the scalps of Chartih Aslanka and Dasun Shanaka to his name as the slide continued. Shehan Jayasuriya top-scored with 24 at No. 8, but that was of little significance to the result.

Beaton finished with 3 for 26 in 6.3 overs - his best in List A - and Johnson finished with 2 for 19 in four overs. The second match takes place in Kurunegala on Thursday, before the series concludes with the third and final game on Sunday in Colombo.

as a matter of fact Hopes 41 is the fourth highest score of 22 innings  by west indian individual batsmen over the 2 test innings the west indies batted in this game....

and over the 2 tests completed so far there have been only 7 west indian individual scores higher than 41.  and Bravo alone has 3 of those 7 scores higher than 41.

so there are 4 more scores higher..Paint 67, Samules 76, Leon 47 and Blackwood 95

so hope fits right in.

wake up man.  or rather go sleep.  clear yuh head

Jesus Mary and Joseph !

Oppo Bats making almost Triple, Double and Single Tons

ON a Batting Strip : and YOU bigging up 41 as "in form" ???

C'mon Maps, show some Class  .....sheeesssshhh :-[

look man..your comprehension seems sort or weary.  you do not understand what I have been saying ... and I don't know wat the hell you mean but I will try to sort it out. are you very tired ::confused:: ::confused::

hope is not established and is still to find his way.  the Pak batsmen are better, mostly established.  and no west indian batsman score a ton but Bravo.  we now have Blackwoods 95 and Paints 67 in addition.

Hopes 41 compares well to Leons 47, and anything Samules has done, Chase etc.

and we are dealing with this series here right now..not any future I can see.

I cant see then wat you are talking about ::confused:: ::confused:: ::confused::

we do not have a single batsman who can score a triple century in a test match at the moment..not one..even if the pitch is concrete.

so wat do you mean..41 as compared to triples ::confused::

 when I select Hope all is in balance.  his selection on what he has done is relevant..forget the Paks and their triples and doubles.  that is not in our game at the moment

Krish I will tell you now you are a partisan administrator and for that role to work well you need to be dispassionate and objective, which sadly you are not and I know you have another tag....

It seems Kecharse, who has failed as a Realtor and the ability to have a woman in his life, has gotten the better of you.

The only issue in this forum is LONELYBOY KETCHIM.

Without the forunum, KETCHIM IS f-wordED....

Congratulations! This is a great forum, all of the members are knowledgeable and there is none of the abuse you see on other forums.

Ali, I would say no but England do not have much depth in their batting. Bairstow needs to correct his technical flaw if he wants cement his place.

where are you fan
