I expected better from them and Bangladesh would themselves know that they are better than some of their recent test results.
Surely. The fast bowlers have done an admirable job this year. Not a whole lot of wickets to show for their efforts, but still way better than what they've produced in previous years.
Yeah fast bowlers have been unlucky they have such a poor batting lineup to play with. The batting shoudlnt even be this bad. Just a really horrid mindset I guess. Though the WIndies bowling attack is not easy to play

Yeah Windies have a solid pace attack nowadays. I hope Shannon Gabriel comes back soon. Lion hearted bowler. But I really do love Seales and especially Alzarri. The latter probably has the smoothest bowling action in cricket history.

Gabriel might have one more series left but I doubt he`ll really come back. They have a great 5 man bowling attack right now. Shame theyre so awful at batting. Just need one more 35+ batter to team up with Brathwaite and co

Shakib has looked good lately and very determined. I agree on the WI having a pretty solid bowling attack now, what is letting them down often is their batting.

West Indies need 84 runs to win the game.

Good fight from Shakib and Nurul. Rest flopped badly.

Roach now has 249 Test wickets. Got a 5-fer.

Quite underrated.

It may be said Roach is the one who started Ricky Ponting’s batting decline. He bounced Ponting who was beaten for pace & ended up wearing it on the noggin. He’s obviously lost pace now but cricinfo has an article on his recent stats & they are impressive. Windies touring Australia this summer apparently.
Ebadot, who makes Chris Martin look like Martin Crowe, made a red ink 21 in the second test! He was let down by Khaled Ahmed who was dismissed for 1. But lifted his own batting average by 0.06. Add Mominul & Shanto to the mix & one third of the team have been walking wickets.

Kriterion Idk how you are coping with this. I`m genuinely confused as to how BD have become such mental midgets. Change of coach needed maybe?

Alzari Joseph has been bowling heat recently. He clocked at 152kph against Pakistan, which is insane.

Jayden Seals
Kemar Roach

Oshane Thomas
Shannon Gabriel
Odean Smith (rapid)


There's some pace there and a lot of talent. They've got some good bowlers coming through and the fast bowling culture appears to be back in the team. Wen was the last time a West Indies side fielded 4 genuine quick bowlers without a specialist spinner?

I'm excited about this west indies test side. The ODI side and T20 side are neither here nor there. They have stupid amounts of talent but probably not the brains to succeed. The test side, however, has had more success in recent times than they have for ages.
Long may it continue. The world needs a strong West Indies and a strong Sri Lanka, and it looks like both sides are starting to climb up.
