West Indies

 

The Windies seem to have been going through a really bad patch for the past few years , but their board has infused young blood into the squad , and Lara seems o be on a comeback , showing that though not in the reckoning , they can't be exiled. The old warhorses Ambrose and Walsh have been going hammer and tongs at all oposition and Ambrose yet maintains an economy rate of below four and an average of about twenty .Their new bowlers King , Dillon & Bryan can be more than a handful as shown in the recent series against Australia. Nemiah Perry adds the much needed spin option to their attack , especially after the retirment of Hooper
Lara and Chanderpaul are among the best batsmen in the world and they also have the required experience .Talking of experience they have the hard hitting Simmons whose seam bowling would play a crucial role and the ever calm Jimmy 'p'Adams .
Ridley Jacobs provides the needed impetus to the start of the innings and Williams is there to provide the support. Keith Arthurton had a miserable cup in '96 and he'll be looking forward to erase those memories this year.
All in all if they can pull up their socks and lose a bit of inconsistency by preventing against batting collapses they look to be a formidable team indeed.

The Team is as follows

Brian Lara (captain)

Curtly Ambrose

Shivnarayan Chanderpaul

R.D Jacobs

H . Bryan

P.V Simmons

Stuart Williams

C.A Walsh

Keith Arthurton

R.D King

N.O Perry

M.Dillon

J.C Adams

S.L Campbell
