    Hopefully this doesn't turn out like the India series. (Where India were reasonably competitive for the first match and a bit and then just flopped completely).

    That post was the probable squad for our tour to the UAE. Binning likely has it saved somewhere on his computer and uses it every time

    Tino Best replaces injured Gabriel

    Tino Best, the Barbados fast bowler, has been recalled to the West Indies squad in England after Shannon Gabriel, who made his Test debut at Lord's, was ruled out of the remainder of the tour with a stress reaction in his back. Best is due to arrive in England on Wednesday.

    Poor guy got injured after 1 game.

    Weather Forecast Added - No Rain Expected.

    2 Billion CF $ on England.

    Trent Bridge swings like ****. Anderson has 23 wickets in his last 3 games there, and Broad and Bresnan have 5 fers in their last games there. It will certainly be a bigger challenge for WI, a lot depends on whether Ampaul is fit.

    Roach should do well regardless, but he's not really a swinger, more a seam/pace bowler.

    My gut is saying, WI will come back strong... Said the same last year when India lost to England.

    He needs to get consistent... he bowls 1 good ball followed by 5 pies. ****!

    ^ But India came back well in the first innings of that test, just flopped afterwards.

    And yeah he's prone to some wayward spells now and then... wouldn't go so far as to say he bowls 5 pies per over. That's Mitchell Johnson and Sreesanth you're thinking of.

    ^^ Actually I think I am mistaking him with Edwards... the guy with a slingy action... is that Edwards?

    West Indies got their Best Bowler in their side... Watch out England...
