Interesting.

I have the idea that Law has the ability to rub people up the wrong way.


working for a board where there is never any drama might be a good thing for him ;)

Time for another drama....

Samuels has called on the WICB to "compromise" in their selection policy after he was omitted from West Indies' ODI squad, and suggested he could accept a Kolpak deal in county cricket if an agreement cannot be reached.

Samuels, twice man of the match in World T20 finals, was left out of West Indies' 15-man squad after electing to miss games in the Super 50 competition - the Caribbean regional List A tournament - in order to play in the more lucrative Pakistan Super League. Current WICB policy is that no player will be considered for the international team unless they have made themselves available for the entire regional competition in that format.

But Samuels, who claims he was offered double the value of his previous West Indies retainer contract (worth $135,000) to appear in the BPL, argues that the WICB could learn from the example of the boards of New Zealand and England, who allow their players to appear in overseas T20 leagues without it rendering them ineligible for international cricket. Late last year, Samuels was one of the three players - along with Darren Bravo and Carlos Brathwaite - to decline the WICB retainer. It is understood that Samuels was offered a Grade C contract worth $115,000, demoting him from the previous Grade B.

Looking through the WI squad for the England ODI series a great name of the past was there. Nurse which brings back memories of great tours of the past. Is Ashley Nurse related to Seymour Nurse who played in the 1950-60's with distinction. I see he only played 29 tests spread over 19 years was he often injured? His 47 average stands as a testament to his talent.
Work expands to fill the time available, so why do today what can be put off until tomorrow.

Nurse is a common surname in Barbados. I don't think they are related. I believe Seymour missed matches and series because of his studies and profession.

Seymour started cricket late 25 for barbados and 27 for the west indies. These were amateur days before fitness became important so his career ended at 36.

I don't know much about Johnny grave. He will have his work cut out for him. I don't hold out much hope. Pybus did more harm than good.

Law is certainly an interesting choice, probably speaks more about who the Windies can get to take the job rather than his credentials as a coach though.

I think it's a bit too early to put South Africa in the same boat...an away Test series win in Australia, a home Test series win against Sri Lanka, they've taken the lead in a Test series in New Zealand.

"Bravo appears to have rejected the chance of a return to the West Indies side by launching a claim for damages against the WICB. Bravo, who has not played for West Indies since he was sent home from Zimbabwe in November 2016 following his criticism of board president, Dave Cameron, is claiming lost earnings of around USD120,000 based upon what he could have made from ODIs against Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka, BPL and PSL contracts, and regional Caribbean competitions."

The Buccaneers have really destroyed Test cricket in Jamaica....

Yesterday, as I queued at Victoria Mutual Building Society, an elderly man in front of me said that he doesn't watch West Indies cricket any more, because it's a Barbados team! He only watches IPL and CPL.
:lol:
Today, as I drove to Kingston, I was listening to the third day's play on KLAS FM. Then, they broke the coverage for something the radio station, and Jamaican sports fans, thought was more important - coverage of the Champions League semi between the two Madrid teams!

At the passport office, I saw two guys watching sport on their phone, and I mistakenly thought it was the cricket. I asked them what the score was, and they said, 1-0 to Real.
:mrgreen:
In the evening, driving back from Kingston, I listened to a radio discussion programme on KLAS FM about athletics, and one presenter stressed the importance of not becoming complacent, because, "We don't want Jamaican athletics to go the way of the West Indies"!
:lol:
On TVJ Sports, the leading news items in order of importance were....

1) Arnett Gardens upsetting Montego Bay United in the semis of the local football competition.
2) Real Madrid beating Atletico courtesy of a Ronaldo hat-trick.
3) Panama beating Paraguay in beach soccer.
4) Mike Fennell stepping down as chairman of the Jamaica Olympic Association.
5) Paula Radcliffe criticises European Athletics attempts to re-write world records.
6) Local netball round-up.
7) Local boxing Contender series.
8) Jamaican entries in the triathlon in Miami.
9) West Indies vs Pakistan Test day three.

So, beach soccer, local netball, local boxing, and triathlon news were seen as more important than West Indies cricket....

Well at least they were competitive against Pakistan...some encouraging signs, the emergence of Roston Chase as a genuine test match all-rounder, the all-round form of Jason Holder, who could probably bat at 7, meaning windies could fit in another bowler...and finally the breakthrough of Shannon Gabriel at long last..At 29 (yes i was suprised to hear he was 29) he finally looks the part, and seems a genuine threat. The only worry is the batting...the guys coming in, just simply don't look good enough...they even make Jermaine Blackwood look class...the batting is a real worry.
