I wonder whether Grocer Graves will be doing West Indies pre-series motivational speech again?

It will be like Sri Lanka, bat one day, bowl one day with 14/15 players and the next day a new game the same again.

Ideally you would want 2 or 3 four day warm up games with 11 players.

How did we get on in Sri Lanka?

On current form, it's hard to see W Indies being competitive until about March 5th!!

Full on Graves mode....

Windies were very competitive in England last year - winning a test.

However England seem to have improved whilst Windies have gone backwards.


What sort of pitches will the Windies prepare ? Seam or spin friendly ? Roads ?

They did win a Test, although it was a generous declaration which allowed it.

Given their capitulation in Bangladesh and our win in Sri Lanka you'd think spin friendly might not be the way to go. Their best bowlers are Gabriel and Roach, something to assist them would be what I'd do.

Amazing to think I was aged 3 when we won a series against West Indies, and we didn't win another until I was 34. I've never supported a team at any level that was so relentlessly and consistently battered and outclassed by one other.

The pair of 2-2 draws at the start of that sequence were the home series in 1991 and 1995, the first times I can remember us not losing. At least one was a six match series, such was the attraction of the visiting team in those days. Phil Tufnell took a stack of wickets in the final Test at The Oval to square the series.

If I were the Windies coach I'd be asking the groundstaff to prepare roads and go for some draws.

England's spinners aren't that effective when there is nothing in the pitch and our pace attack is hardly express pace.

My first and grandfather's last test was Edgbaston 73 when I was 6. He wanted me to see Sobers live before he died. I thought I'd be taking my grandchildren without ever seeing an England series win at one point.

That 5 years around the turn of the millennium was mind boggling for any England fan brought up in the late 80s and 90s. First ever series wins for XX records fell at quite an alarming rate!

Have West Indies had any luck getting their players back into the Test fold? As I have said before Darren Bravo may make a difference to this side.

It looks like a possibility as he's back in their ODI squad though he hasn't played a first class match in two years.
