West Indies NAT Season 56 One Day World Cup Summary

The recently concluded World Cup saw us fall at the final hurdle, and fall rather dramatically as we were cleaned for 71 and stood no chance in the finals as the Indian side yet again conquered us in the finals after losing to us in the group stage after our colossal collapse in the Twenty World Cup finals during EOS 47.

Prior to that, a fair few lads were able to put in nifty performances in gathering five victories including an absolute humdinger against the United States of America in the semis.

George Maris and Lakka Teepee impressed with consistent runs whilst Dinanath Challenger and Dadrian Polius were regulars amongst the wickets. Andy Hampson and George John starred as our only fifer and century scorer playing a massive role in the classic semifinal.

This takes us to the next season and we'll be having elections next week. I'm not going anywhere and I'm not letting Bustergut leave either, and hopefully we can have another crack. If we do continue, we'll be on the lookout for a couple new assistants, preferably active managers that would like to have a look around and learn the nat scene.

Furthermore, the seniors cricket stadium has been renamed to Tobago Saucers Arena in celebration of their Division One title victory.

Thanks for allowing us to tour your lads:)

West Indies NAT Season 57 Update

West Indies have added DEVI to the assistant unit. They bolster a splendid record having assisted Kenya very recently if memory serves me correct. They are eager to join the West Indies unit and hopefully can be a nifty addition.

Furthermore, we have made some early season squad changes and brought in some younger names.

We have bid adieu to two splendid bats that also led the side wonderfully in Nichollas Rampersad and Kamal Walsh. To replace them, the squad now sees the addition of Tyrell Hoad, a brilliant keeper bat hailing from desert7's Gold Prospectors XI and Wayne Lewis, another southpaw from Rustars.

New-ball specialist Geoffroy Austin had limited opportunities with the side owing Joseph Graham's emergence but he had been very handy and so was the late bloomer in Andy White. Both fast-mediums have also been dropped and replacing them are Andre Quinn from Wools Wanderers and Peter Biley from Chesney Champions.

Furthermore, the squad sees an addition of another fiery quick in Space Wolves' Zahir ad-din Tughtikin and a wristie in Allmanna Idrottskulubben's Anthony Tekah.

West Indies NAT Season 57 One Day Tour 1 Squad Announcement
The West Indian squad is heading to New Zealand for the first tour of the new term as the lads look to continue their consistency in the previous term and hopefully add some silverware in the cabinet after two heartbreak losses to the Indians in the Division One Tour and World Cup Final very recently. The Kiwis have bid for dry, crumbling and even decks for the upcoming week.

The eighteen lads set to tour this time include:

Andy Hampson Pink Flag Right-arm Fast

Anthony Tekah Allmänna Idrottsklubben Right-arm Wrist Spin [DEBUT]

The four seamer- five spinner attack also boasts of Peter Biley and his wily left-arm seamers alongside the usuals in Andy Hampson and Dinanath Challenger while Lloyd Verwayen's old ball skill will come to the fore yet again.

The five fixtures shall be:

match 6758180 vs Australia- February 4- Dry pitch

West Indies NAT Season 57 Updates
The Division One One Day tour ended as a mixed bag for the Windies unit. Wins over Australia and New Zealand ensured that despite a horrid end with three shabby losses, Windies were able to save face and survive in New Zealand. Runs from southpaws Nick Allflatt, Maxford Francis and George Maris were a part of the highlight reel as West Indies managed two class chases in games one and two against the oceanic nations. The bowling had rather shabby returns unfortunately but Peter Biley and Ernest Fraser did a good job to return home with six wickets at 18 and 13 respectively.

Next up, will be the Twenty-20 tour to the gloomy cold lands of England on crumbling, hard and dry decks. West Indies will be competing to ensure they can qualify for the Twenty-20 World Cup at the end of season.

The eighteen lads set to tour this time include:

Andy Hampson Pink Flag Right-arm Fast

Anthony Tekah Allmänna Idrottsklubben Right-arm Wrist Spin

Billy Batty Middle Stump Lubricators Right-hand Bat

Carl Charles Exiles Left-hand Keeper Bat

Dadrian Polius Donna's Kebabs Right-arm Wrist Spin

Dane Small Sofa King Right-arm Finger Spin/ Left-hand Bat

Dinanath Challenger Illawarra Dragons CC Left-arm Fast

Ernest Fraser Armstrong 13's Left-arm Finger Spin

George John Tobago Saucers Right-hand Keeper Bat

George Maris Herosnzeros Left-hand Bat

Jason Clarke Summit Rangers Right-arm Fast

Joseph Graham stresseddesserts Left-arm Fast Medium

Lakka Teepee TheWizard's XI Right-hand Bat

Livingstone Phillips Yorkieshire CC Right-arm Finger Spin

Maxford Francis Tobago Saucers Left-hand Bat

Nick Allflatt Ashburn CC Left-hand Bat

Viv Richards Schweddy Balls Right-hand Bat

Wayne Lewis Rustars Left-hand Bat

The squad sees only two changes from the one that toured New Zealand a few weeks ago. Jason Clarke and Joseph Graham come in for Lloyd Verwayen and Peter Biley as the 4 seamer-5 spinner combination will continue.

The five fixtures shall be:

match 6758310 vs Kenya- February 4- Crumbling pitch
match 6758307 vs Sri Lanka- February 5- Crumbling pitch
match 6758305 vs England- February 6- Dry pitch
match 6758302 vs Scotland- February 7- Crumbling pitch
match 6758308 vs Bermuda- February 8- Crumbling pitch

Thanks for allowing us to tour your lads as always!

Missed chucking in a summary of the T20 tour as i've been a bit busy, but we had a tough go of it. A game one loss to a brilliant fifer set us back in our quest to qualify for the upcoming World T20. We took out a couple wins and a tie against the Scots but Day 5 pressure told on us where we were in a must-win scenario against our friendly nemesis Bermuda. Disappointing returns as we finished champions and semi-finalists in the previous two editions of the competition, but the flaky nature of the shorter format alongside a poor Twenty-20 tour in the previous season implied that we failed to finish top twelve.

Up next, will be the One Day tour in a couple weeks, cheers:)
