Predictably enough, our batting folded meekly at 139. The next part of this predictable story is to watch WI pile up around 500 runs...
(why do i bother following anyway?????)

This is just rubbish. Our managers talk about experience. Well guess what, Except for Collins (47 wickets) none of the West indies bowlers have taken more then 8 wickets.

Someone mentioned Talha's attitude. Check this out (5th ball):

7.1 Talha Jubair to Hinds, no run
7.2 Talha Jubair to Hinds, FOUR, well outside the off, a half volley,
Hinds couldn't have asked for any better - yet another cracking
cover drive for four
7.3 Talha Jubair to Hinds, no run, DROPPED! Slightly short, trying to
force the ball through the off side, ball carries to Naimur at
third slip - to his left, good effort, but catch not taken
7.4 Talha Jubair to Hinds, FOUR, Short! And a good shot, pulled away
for four
7.5 Talha Jubair to Hinds, no run, good sharp bouncer, ducks under
7.6 Talha Jubair to Hinds, FOUR, Take that! Hinds plays a typical cover
drive off the back-foot - to a delivery that is pitched up and
outside the off, spanking shot for four, no fielder dared to put
his hand to it, hit so powerfully

I mentioned Talha's attitude for one delivery against one opponent in one innings in one match in South Africa. I'm talking about the one bouncer he bowled to Shawn Pollock. Gave the little ginger tyke a real fright. My point is that the BD team should reproduce that aggression consistently at every match, in every innings, for every delivery.
