It was a disappointing day to say the least. Whatmore was really down. His face did'nt hide that at all. Also, I think this pitch was unsuitable. I had a look at the pitch after the match and cracks were visible al over the place, that is looking at the crease from a distqance of say 10 feet. Surprisingly Best got a few really high bounces.

Again Plot showed exceptional skills. Windies are not known to memorize foreign player names, but after the match and during the match, radiowaves were on and on about Pilots reflexes. Especially the the last stumping.

Today, the windies are apprehensive about tommorow. For a lively and carefree nation that says a lot about how far our cricket has come. I saw a competitive outfit out there which is very different from their first encounter with WI.
