somehow the standards for posting One Day match totals have gone up.... a total of 300+ doesnt look really awesome anymore... getting too common :o Teams can even chase and win 300+ runs :duh:

Lara and Gayle messed with the Zim bowling too bad... painful...

Why is Gayle wearing a different shirt to Lara?

I got both the pics from BBC. I guess Gayle's pic is not the one taken from the match, that has to be an old one.
