I’ve noticed the Windies have gone real old school and have a keeper batting at 8. Surely they have have a decent keeper that can bat as well. I know Sri Lanka in the day employed a pure keeper in Jayawardena to free up Sangakkara but Jawaywardena had an average of 30 and was the pure wicket keeper for a while.

What's their all rounder situation like? Maybe they just have a stronger batsman there

They’ve moved the keeper down to 9 at stumps and are playing a debutant batsman at 8 with a FC average of 23.

Looking at it now I suspect they sent out Worrican (spinner) as a nightwatchman but he got out after 8 balls and then they sent out Holder as a second, more reliable nightwatchman.

Either way, absolute shambles of a test side
