Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.

His batting against Jamaica was very impressive. It's possible he just had a bad patch when he was dropped

“Batting is my occupation;
both by inclination and gift.
I am interested in correct strokes
to suit the occasion – a great match.
The match is cohabiting. The strokes
must be keen, sharp, and cleanly struck
as if Peter May, Cowdrey, or Sobers or I
could never be out.”

Rohan Kanhai was a 40 year old : Inaugural WC 1975

www.espncricinfo.com/ci/content/player/52287.html


My dad said Mr. Kanhai was dropped by West Indies selectors because he was had a bad series just like Chanderpaul did.  However, West Indies did recall Mr. Kanhai for the world cup after Mr. Sobers was unavailable.  My dad also told me that the year prior to the world cup, Mr. Kanhai had one of his most productive batting form.  This was after he was dropped and prior to being selected.  It seems he was on a mission to prove the selectors wrong.

My dad said that story is being repeated in Chanderpaul.

I always wondered why Viv retired when he did.  it was good for Lara but I thought he could go on for more years...

Lara too..Richardson..Greenidge..Haynes..even impse Lloyd ::LOL:: ::LOL:: ::LOL::


From what I heard, Mr. Maps, Richards failed in the last 9 years of his test career when you consider the high standards he set in the years prior to that.  I have heard some compared him to the Indian batsman, Sehwag.  They both had similar style of making much of their superior hand/eye coordination ability.
