International cricket rolling thread


So, tomorrow, England start their test series against the West Indies in Barbados.

It's been a while since we've been there, and we got embarassed last time out - it was the series that basically did for Peter Moores as coach, and that seems like forever ago. We've swung up, back down and are possibly on the way back up again since then.

I haven't followed West Indian cricket much, and I don't recognise much of their likely team, but they are going to be tough to beat at home. I'd like to put England as favourites, but we don't like to make it easy for ourselves.

I note they'll use a Duke ball. England's seamers will love that. I'm not seeing high scoring games.
