ok, my return to the board means we can start taking catches now. 5th down. I'll stay a bit.:)

This is the worst the Tigers have fielded in the longest time...It is case of nerves! nothing else! Tomorrow we will hopefully see a much more focussed effort. Godwilling! :)

One thing to be happy about, BD caught Smithy ! if they had dropped him aswell, then he would have been on his way to a 2nd hundred.

From what I gathered from commentry, Gayle was dropeed thrice; Lara (of Mushfique), Sarwan and Chanderpal (of Rafique) were dropeed once each. Hannan, Rajun (twice), Ash and Golla were the culprits. All of the catches were in the circle -- gully, midwicket, mid-on etc. Tareq was also the unlucky bowler for one of the missed chances (don't know which one).

I thought I heard in the commentator's summary that Aziz had 2 dropped off him. Anyway, we need to bring the entire package to win a match, until we do games will always slip away like they did at Multan and maybe here in St. Lucia. On the other hand, when everyone expects you to get crushed, being on top even after 3 days is a good place to be!

to me, it seems like this match will create (if not already done) the world record of dropped catches, adding both sides. my question is, why? the kinda ground fielding i saw (thanx to cricipagol), its hard to say that their fielding has become worse. and the same thing happended with WI. why? one thing, i'm thinking is the red color of the seats. since they are mostly empty, does that hide the red ball? i'm not trying to back our team here, if those catches were taken, we could dream about winning tomorrow. but i'm just wondering, why?

about the WI drop catches,

it was ONLY the butterfingers Fidel Edwards who dropped ALL FOUR !!!, WI fielders really have safe hands, but it seems Edwards is just useless at moving his hands towards the ball.

If you want to see someone catch a ball, you should see Dwayne Smith, the boy will run a mile, dive, forward roll and catch the ball with ease!:)

We had this disease of dropping catches for a long time and still havent improved!:yawn:
