looks another challenging surface for batsmen but less grass than in the 1st test when they did the side by side comparison for day 1...

Windies have gone with only Chase as a spin option

32c + and clear skies seeing off any pitch demons and players alike..these two barely looked in any trouble since lunch apart from cramp for Fawad...

Day 2: WI 7.6 Pak 1.75 draw 3.3 

Bit more cloud around today - possibility of some weather interruptions but better overheads for bowling at times...ball did a more in the final session on day 1 after the clouds rolled in though partly windies upped the intensity after Fawad retired hurt with cramp (will presumably return at fall of next wicket)

Pak inns runs currently 356-364 with a well known spread company.

Not personally but I did once encounter a glitch where bets would match but the red and green figures didn't reflect the new position so you had to guess what your actual exposure was. It was a complete nightmare. BF never admitted the glitch ever happened, let alone try to explain it. I think I got round it by keeping a duplicate BF page open in a different browser. The problem persisted for a day or two if I remember rightly.

Report Fo'B August 23, 2021 5:15 PM BST
me neither, the red and green figures on my trading software were wrong and the cancelled trade was still in the matched bet list, had to restart it. the betfair green figure in the browser was right tho.

Gone in blind on the draw and doing the rain dance. Will add to that draw as soon as Joseph is out. Also took cover on WI just in case they are too stupid to realise they should not win this match. Braithwaite the key for me. Get him and the game is up. Small chance of rain in the afternoon but things can change quickly. Speculative punt. Paks should win.

just can't see WI being able to bat all day tho' could be one or two good stands..Pak bowling well

Not watched anything yet tbh. Just fancy a hit and hope. KB is a good batsman and can hold an end up. I dont have much faith in WI to hand to but sometimes stuff happens!

forecast looks decent, satellite very clear at the moment...every chance of getting most of the overs in...light could be an issue at the ar$é end of the day but yesterday under sunny skies they could have played at least another half hour had it been available in the written playing conditions..

beware of the market inplay after yesterday as well...

Always seem to lose a wicket just before my bet matches. Gaarrrrggghhhhh!!!!!!!

Sometimes you just get wrong-footed by one crucial position taken at a critical juncture that you never quite recover from.

Missing the early draw highs was my first mistake. Note to self:- never miss the start of a Test.
