Scotland topped a qualifier group that contained a test team and they have a substantially home grown team unlike a lot of associate nations with one setta expats.

Bodes well for them.

Namibia beat Ireland this morning to qualify alongside Sri Lanka for the main phase.
Or a more apt name might be South Africa A given how much South Africans they have.

Only 3, most notably David Wiese who actually played for SA, all 3 have at least 1 Namibian parent.
With a population of just over 2.5 million, i was actually surprised they made it into the final 12.
Ireland failed to qualify.

Only three?? Well then Netherlands is the SA A. One of their early matches they had five or six South African born players.


Namibia also probably doesn't pull that team from a pool of 2.4 m but much less given the culture and cost of cricket

England: 1 Jason Roy, 2 Jos Buttler (wk), 3 Dawid Malan, 4 Jonny Bairstow, 5 Liam Livingstone, 6 Eoin Morgan (capt), 7 Moeen Ali, 8 Chris Woakes, 9 Chris Jordan, 10 Adil Rashid, 11 Tymal Mills

West Indies: 1 Evin Lewis, 2 Lendl Simmons, 3 Chris Gayle, 4 Nicholas Pooran (wk), 5 Shimron Hetmyer, 6 Kieron Pollard (capt), 7 Andre Russell, 8 Dwayne Bravo, 9 Akeal Hosein, 10 Ravi Rampaul, 11 Obed McCoy


WI only playing 1 spin bowler? :?

Chase being omitted makes no sense, he was the highest run scorer in the recent CPL and also the recent warm up matches too. He would've also added a 2nd spin option opposite Hosein. WI think tank is empty as usual.

WI 9-2. No surprises here. Both Simmons and Lewis out. We won't be making 120.

Simmons struggling awhile now, i think if they insist on playing Gayle, then let him open, and include Chase 1 down

They won't have 2 left handers opening. Most likely Fletcher replaces Simmons, to open with Lewis and Gayle stays at No. 3. Either way not looking good for WI. They have been poor in the 2 warm up world cup matches which they lost. As a team their form is poor.

Gayle and Lewis have opened alot of innings together, for both Wi and SKNP, they had some good partnerships, before Gayle's consistency started to fade away

That's the price u pay for leaving out the only batsman who could stabilize the innings, the T20 game like all the other formats have evolved but WI for whatever reason decide to remain the same, a batting line up of only bit hitters

We're lucky we didn't have to go through that qualifying phase. Namibia, Scotland , Ireland etc would have embarrassed us.

Not surprised at all. The signs were there.

I only watched the first over, went to sleep, got up at 12, looked at the score and laughed.

I will be surprised if WI win a single game in their group.

Until they stop this crap about having different fitness levels for different players - is salt.
