Can our batsmen take the game to day 4 ? I have my doubts about that. Maybe against Australia. :)

I would have bowled Moni in the 92nd/93rd over cause it's West Indies.

Still, great job nonetheless. I know it's a relatively new ball but if they try to hit the spin, they'll be OUT.

about 20 overs will be played today - hope they will not lose any wkts

I think if it was moni in 92/93rd overs the innings would have been lenger. They won't hit a ball just would have defended.

I think pilot did the right thing as our bowlers were getting swings.

Besides, Moni was not bowling as well as he can bowl.

He started well enough in bowling, but he started to bowl down the leg side after a while.

Besides, I think it was a bad day for Moni personally. At first, he drops the catch of Gayle, fortunately for him Gayle could not score more before getting out.

And then every once in a while the ball started to chase Moni rather than Moni started to chase balls.

They just took a quick look at our player profiles, found out that Moni is nearing 40 and guess what - Make the old guy work. *sigh*

Besides, if we can do better on days Moni does bad, let's have a Bad MONI day everyday.
