as a draw backer only concern for me is, the amount of overs batted by west indies, think they need to bat the whole day out + 40 overs tommorow for a draw possibly to trade evens

how's the over rate?? 79 bowled at official close, looking like 85 or 86 by 6.00...unlikely to matter in this game, but there's at least 4 overs lost...

4 referrals, ridiculously long drinks breaks, sight-screen adjustments, umps checking for boundaries...all these breaks add up

until punter gets suspended he won't take it seriously...

LD & S, this could favour west indies, with slow over rates u think?

5 overs deducted from todays play........just makes the chance of an Aussie win slightly harder


Any idea if they could use 'extra time' for days 2,3,4 and 5 to make up lost time?

Report West Coast Eagles December 4, 2009 6:37 AM GMT
Sammy looks really good with the bat, but scoring IMO about par. 4.00 runs per over, with short boundaries is expected here.

morning session could be the key tommorow. The more the Windies bat, the more it will frustrate aussies. Still plenty of time in this game for a result, Aussies will score fast here no doubt, but as they 'scoreboard pressure' may get to them.

400 seems like it could be on for the windies and unless the aussies plunder 700 they will be batting last interesting test match this one key for the windies here is to bat until lunch if they can tommorow take time out of the game and by batting till lunch will see them pass 400

Oz price got some drifting potential in the first session IMO. No wickets first 40 minutes could see above evens ?
Report Lix December 4, 2009 2:23 PM GMT
Hoovered up all the 3/1 draw at the last ball of the day. Now got comedy green there :)

Might have to lay some off till I know what score WI make. You need about 600 runs here 1st inns to guarantee not losing! Anything under 400 gives Aus a great chance here.

Pitch looks an absolute featherbed and WI bowling looks awful on paper, should suit someone like Watson with his crossbat shots given the small square boundaries. Hard to see Aus not getting 500+ here. Draw may depend on how quickly Aus can bat but not hard to imagine draw around 2.5 if Aus are still batting on day 4
