After DLF Cup today is another match between WI Vs Aus. WI already played 3 matches in this tournament and now they knew the condition of pitch better than Australia. This is the only one point that favors WI otherwise in every cases Australia is superior to WI. As a die hard WI Fan I hope the victory for WI. But it is one task that will never be easy job against Aus. But WI needs this win very much to survive in this tournament. They are the defending champions, Come on WI. Plz….:up:

I know you all know a lot of Cricket Website which covers player’s name for the two sides and live scores. So I don’t mention them. I know all the forum’s members are smarter than me. No surprise…:fire:

Those Indian spiced the bloody pitches...we probably going to watch another less than 500 runs match. Hope thats not going to be the case.
Australia are clear favourites but W.I are definetly going to give them a tough time despite their dismal performance against S-Lanka. Inconsistency is what rocks the Windies but generally they a good side with attacking batsmen and a deadly pace attack. Go Windies Go;)

lol spiced up as in added peppers etc so batsmen sneeze lose concn n get out?:P
no offense
but its sort of dumb to have a series in the subcontinent rite now after the rains .......
"less than tailored for batsmen " pitches is wat u wud expect........... and newez dont kno wat ppl re cribbing abt...dont u guys ever get bored wachin batting maches rather than "cricket matches" a bit of help for the bowlers........all that batsmen need to do is put their head down and grit it out for the first 20-25 balls...the runs will come.........these are 200-250 piches .........not ones for 275+.....so if a team mgmt has brains and the team has "batsmen " unlike sloggers like sehwag ,afridi, flintoff ,symmonds ........they shud be able to put arnd 225 on the board./////////but west indies would be more or less a no-contest ........unless we see an inspired performance

so, some talks in the favor of of rubbish pitches.
These pitches have no life. Nothing for the batsmen, nothing for the bowlers. All the deliveries are knee-high.

Good partnership between Lara and Morton.

But I am very surprised why Baugh came earlier than Bravo...any reason??

May be, Bravo did not want to risk his average ;)
Decent effort by the WI.

if lara did not get injured, windies might have passed 250

235 is a decent total...but Australia is not a decent team...very aggressive, thats the problem. 235 will work against India and England, but Australia...I am not sure..

what a game?

Excellent fight back by the windies bowlers at the end.
215/8 in 48 overs... chasing 235. Three quick wickets by windies in two overs

up - down - up - down. What a graph West Indies have in term of performance. Are they the new Pakistan?

Anyways, Great win ofcourse. 182/4 with 53 runs needed in 8.5 overs to go and restricting Australia shows their bowling strength.

Love it. Very well played by WI. They showed a lot of heart and deserve this. Do anyone know what exactly happened between Gayle and Clarke?

Very well played WI.

Aussies and England will be facing each other on saturady with a defeat each.

Nice to see aussies are crumbling under pressure.

India - WI match is going to be damn important. I dont believe that Australia will leave in the first round. Great win by WI and the calculations are on!

i want west indies to win all of it. but i dont know if they can. they were not in control of the match till australia scored 200. and also they performed poorly against srilanka. so i m not sure but hoping. also hoping Lara is okay.

They will go to the semi final I think...

Taylor’s Hattric was outstanding considering the match status. Cause in that time Aus needed 6.2 RPO and have 4 wickets in hand…unbelievable performance by Taylor.

Congrats to Lara. He proves that why he is a real match winner in the world cricket. He could come earlier in pitch….but Lara thought he should bat till the end and he was 95% successful.

Having this type of quality (Match winning Capacity) Lara is far ahead of Sachin, I believe that.

Yeah Gayle was little bit aggressive against Gilli and Clarke….lost temper several times and did miss-fielding also.

After getting the wicket (Symonds was bowled) he was dancing 30 sec in Crease and making the run out (Gilly) he expressed something strange….good to watch but very unusual considering Non-smiley Gayle.

Taylor's hatrick does the trick...i thought he deserved to be man of the match since he store the game away from the Aussies, but all the same Lara and Morton did put up a fantastic partnership to win this match...

One good Information to WI's Fan: After taking the World Cup in 2003, Australia lost to WI maximum times (5 times) comparing to other nations.

West Indians had to use a 33-year-old Mumbai wicketkeeper as their substitute fielder.

From a article. very nice analysis of the match. Click to read (http://www.smh.com.au/news/cricket/hex-talk-doesnt-do-it-for-ponting/2006/10/19/1160851065625.html)
