May as well just shake hands now.

West Indies have been shambolic. Too many balls they haven't had to play, too many easy pickings on leg stump, and about the easiest catch put down. As if they are just out for an afternoon stroll.

I think they talk about contrast swing as opposed to true reverse swing, but it confuses me to be honest.
It was a good over Mayers put together, he does look like taking test match wickets in a way a lot of bowlers of a similar pace don't, Collingwood for instance.

Cornwall keeping the runs down but in terms of taking wickets not much variation and he looks ordinary. Not quite Shane Warne.

I would go with Mayers and Joseph after tea. They look the best wicket taking options. Strangely, neither of them bowled in the morning session. Perhaps worth trying a few more short balls? Realistically, they need at least two more wickets very quickly, and that seems unlikely.

Even with such attacking fields the run rate is again barely 2.5.

As for the guy making the ridiculous noise could you imagine sitting next to him?

Absolutely gutted. Not watched a ball, not watched my own web cam link!

Layer off blind at 4.4 and 6

Have to admit was a little over exposed and scared. 5 days, 4 of which I watched. Bet on day 1. Coulda, woulda, shoulda let it ride but a very good win nonetheless.

Mystifying choice of bowlers if Brathwaite was actually trying to win the match.

Don't bowl the most dangerous bowler and instead persist with a spinner who doesn't look likely to take a wicket if he bowled into next week.

I do run lines quite often but there is too big an unpredictability about these teams. I tend to do run lines on innings runs an also on good batting wickets. I prefer to use Bet365 as they are easier to m9nitir although use Sportsbook
