Goes back to 2014 :angry:

Powell said that in his subsequent conversation with Pybus, he was accused of "walking off the job"
and was told that he needed to return to grassroots cricket in order to make his way back into the regional squad.

"During my conversation with Pybus, he stated that he had made numerous attempts to contact me but had been unsuccessful,"

"Pybus insisted that I write a letter to him outlining my plans to return to cricket.
He also pressed me to divulge details of my personal issue which I did not wish to discuss.
He then went on to imply, in my opinion, that my future position in the squad would be compromised
if I was not willing to disclose this information, which I felt was coercive, intrusive and unjust."

Garfield, I wish you would remind spots fans but "hard to fathom" is disingenuous.
Foreign Coach Richard Pybus destroyed Kieran Powell : WE both know that ....

Take Kieran Powell, for example. The tall left-hander recklessly ran down the wicket at a flighted delivery
the 16th of the innings as well as the first he faced. Aiming a big hit over mid-wicket, he was expecting turn
from a ball that continued in a straight line. He missed, and was out stumped, embarrassingly.
He was the first batsman in Test history to be stumped off the first ball he received.

Powell's carelessness was hard to fathom. One can understand the batsman's desire to wrest the upper hand early
against bowling he knew would be difficult in the conditions. But surely he could have tried to assess the level
of the threat before premeditatedly advancing down the wicket as he did. It is hard to recall a more wasteful effort.

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

I don't think Powell should be given any further opportunities!
no malice and without prejudice.
Just runs as an opener and mental fortitude !

Recall how we all said Sarwan was mentally weak to deal with Hilaire and Opisss ??

Garfield, this is usual Guyana style batsmanship : well known thruout the region , forever !

The West Indies’ top scorer for the series was Shimron Hetmyer.
His exquisite footwork allows him to play spin

WHY don't you question why he is NOT batting # 3 :
SO that we can save the humiliation of 5 down for 29 runs ?????????????
cause he was yo yoed to # 6 ????
