Well, I tire of gamesmanship and petulant play whoever it's by, whether it's Jimmy Anderson, Harbhajan or Steve Smith. Of course all sides do it, but the Aussies have always perceived themselves as "specialists".

Morgan has been one of the top run scorers in ODIs this past year and is 11th in the T20 rankings. Hardly over the hill. I'm not Morgan's biggest fan and he isn't at his best at the moment, but people seem to quickly forget what has been done in the recent past.

We are just lucky that one of them won us a game and allowed us to reach the semis with the willow.

Lendl Simmons will replace Andre Fletcher. He was originally in the squad and withdrawn with a back problem.

Judging by the game against Australia they are wrong, the key decisions went Indias way.

13th in the rankings. Do we trust rankings? If so then it is time to stop criticising moeen who is ranked 11 for ODI bowling.

I'd suggest that's a big improvement.

Should bring a little bit more stability at the top, well as much stability as you can get in a Windies T20 side. He's the one I'd say they've missed most though out of him, Pollard and Narine.

After what happened in the Sri Lanka match England won't want to be caught without a 5th seamer. One of the spinners will have to make way.

We shouldn't trust the rankings. The way they are produced is seriously flawed.

Whatever the figures, if he continues to be seen as being rather fortunate, criticism of Ali's bowling will continue.

If he continues to be fortunate, no matter how he bowls, that will only be good for England.

Couldn't possibly disagree with that. Long may it continue but we shouldn't let it blind us as to his ability. I get the feeling though, that in T20, he may one day follow Broad into the record books.

I mentioned match referees, not umpires, and I also mentioned that Indians perceive that way.
