Bravo, Roach and Benn have done a really good job with the ball

Dont think Rampaul is up to Test standard to be honest. I really wanted to see Gavin Tonge given a go, as he was quite impressive in the Champions Trophy.

Also a shame about Taylor not being able to bowl, looks like he might not be able to bowl 2nd innings as well.

Suprised the draw is holding up so well (5.8). I bet it comes into 3's at least at some point. This is a very good pitch.
Report West Coast Eagles November 27, 2009 2:47 AM GMT
yeh bit suprised by the odds as well
this game for me has a very similiar feel to SL V India 2nd test match

except , india posted 650+ and the odds were around 2.24 Draw V 1.80 India

this game aussies going to post around 500, Draw 5.80 v 1.22 Aussies
Report karaokechamp1 November 27, 2009 2:53 AM GMT
I think the reason the draw is holding up well is people don't rate Nash, and don't know much about Dowlin. I can tell you, Dowlin can bat, and Nash makes the windies tougher to get out than before. Draw overs at 5.8 IMO.

I dont understand the point of the declaration when you still have plenty of time in the game and 2 wickets in hand, surely going for big shots for next 5-6 overs aiming for around 40-45 runs would have been better for Aussies???

Quite suprised by declaration, but Aussies playing to 'protect' averages.

Report West Coast Eagles November 27, 2009 3:13 AM GMT
call me crazy, but I can see this West Indies line up getting at least 400 runs or so on this pitch

Think Ricky is underestimating the Windies batting line up, every run is going to be crucial here, and the difference between having a 100 run lead and a 200 run lead is enormous.
Report karaokechamp1 November 27, 2009 3:14 AM GMT
Problem with this dec is, means Aus will probably bat again. Ricky pointing will not rate the Windies batting, and set them a silly 'chaseable' total on day 5, which, if they throw the bat, they might get. You are dense Ricky, give it away mate.

I agree with you West Coast. Arrogant declaration. Again a STUPID piece of captaincy. Now for those who doubt that Ricky is not a bad captain, why did we lose in India, and also the last two ashes series? Answer- Ricky's captaincy.

to be honest if you are ask the West Indies if they were to happy to dismiss Aussies for under 500 today, i think they would have taken it, with a smile and handshake.

Whether Aussies goes on to win, lose or draw this, this declaration IMO not the greatest decision made by Ponting.

well i know was Ricky Ponting's captaincy in The T20's was really shocking

Going into a T20 game at the world cup with NO specialast spinners, wrong tactics.

Against England in the5th test not playing a spinner there.

I believe he is losing his edge as captain, losing 3 of the past 4 series in Test cricket.

Yeah eagle, the ONLY reason we can lose this test is Ricky. If the windies fall 100 short, and Ricky declares leaving them about 320 to get on day 5, they'll probably get them.. If he does that, I'm gonna start a website with a 'sack ricky' petition.
