West Indies tour of India 2013-14

The surprise pick that could help West Indies

In the Jamaica Gleaner, Tony Becca suggests why Chadwick Walton's selection for the Tests against India could be an inspired pick and says that the wicketkeeper batsman could fulfill an important role in the side.

Although Walton came through the back door, through the Combined Colleges and Campuses (CCC), instead of by the Jamaican team, although his Test record reads 13 runs and an average of 3.25 from two matches, his ODI record reads zero runs from two matches, and his first-class record reads 2,122 runs, an average of 25.87 with one century from 54 matches, his wicketkeeping is nearly as good as any - especially against fast bowlers, and his batting can be brilliantly exciting.
