oh well i have loads of 0600am-1400pm shifts comimg up so i shud be at home in time
 
I just wish schools could close early when cricket was on. Then all my problems would be solved.
 
If you have anything to do with Pak cricket - why not call in a general strike ?
 
West Indies 2/0 (0.4 ov)

single for gayle and hinds..
 
Lara will score a hundred, thus pushing my position in the league to atleast past Marooned - oh God pls - let Lara score a big hundred !!! ( then flop against Pakistsan too :) )

Yeh i want him to score a big century too as he is my skipper
 
I cant watch the ODI's atleast because I'll still have exams !!!!!

I think I can only watch the tests
 
dammit! cricinfo is not refreshing the scorecard for some reason
 
west indies lose 2 quick wkts including lara for a duck!

w.i 33/3
 
noooo.. i heard if SA win 4-1 or 5-0 they climb to 4th place and pakistan fall to 5th
 
Beautiful delivery from Langeveldt... 40/4 now.

sarwan gone
 
Windies wickets falling like flies :(
Lara my skipper going for a duck X)
 
41-4 at the moment. The WI batting machine hasnt fired at all. Credit to the SA bowlers though. That delivery to get Sarwan was very very impressive. Remember Sarwan has a 48 average in ODIs. Thats better than anyone in world cricket!
 
west indies doing an England impression here
 
Andre Nel bowling figures 5-4-1-0!!!

Windies trying to keep wickets in hand.
 
Ive still got faith! Bravo and Chanderpaul keep batting until the 35-40th over. Enter Dwayne Smith and get a quickfire 100 and there we go a competitive total!
 
Bowling has not been that amazing, yet west indies manaed to somehow get themselves to 66-5
 
69-6!!!!

This reminds me of indias batting at last day bangalore, over cautious and losing wickets.

w.i 71/6 (31)
 
71/6

i sthis the gr8 west indian batting line up dat was goin to feast on pakistani bowling

theyre being demolished by the 76mph of pollock

i cant wait to see wat rana does

:D :D :D
 
It is boring stuff out there now. SA will take about 8 overs to chase this score
 
And people are afraid that West Indies might give us a hard time ? huh !

I guess the Windies have never heard of slogging

w.i 130/7 (47.3)

w.i dont know how to bat forget slogging
 
damn, nel has got some good figures. 8 overs 8 runs with 4 maidens. Somebody needs to go shahid afrdi on him.
 
I realised this run rate is slower than Bangladesh's test rate
 
w.i 152/7(50)

no where near enuf.... needed double that!

imagine what will happen if we lose to this team :( ....
 
if a team has lost only 7 wkts and has a run rate of 3 runs after 50 overs... they have only themselves to blame.
 
The thing with the WI is there batsmen are more unpredictable than Pakistan and that takes some doing.

They can be absoluately superb one day and fold to 54 allout the next. The no. of times they have been bowled out for less than 150 is amazing in the last couple of years, but you get batmen like Gayle getting 300+, W.Hinds getting 200+, not to mention Lara, Sarwan, and Chanderpaul.

There bowling is there weakness but there batsmen let them down, time and time again, by just being lazy and not applying themselves.

They lose so many wickets to the new ball it is amazing, probably stats will show that Chanderpaul finds himself at 30-3 more often than Inzy does for Pakistan.

It just depends on the day which batting line up turns up on the day. Pakistan should not be over confident, but bowling a good containing line and length backed up by good fielding and good field placements, will put the west indies batsmen under severe pressure, and they are more likely than not likely to self capitulate.
 
South Africa will chase down this total in about 15 overs if they bat like yesterday
 
west indies always struggle batting 1st! if i was inzi and win the toss... always put them in!
 
its raining now...

play still going on..

Glad to see the back of the selfish Kallis

he will be devastated as his low score will affect his average!

Seriously, I will have him in my team any day of the week!
