Default West Indies vs Australia(5 ODIs + 2 T20s + 3 Tests)

Not the most tantalizing series in the world, but it starts with 5 ODI matches, so we should get a bit of a contest, and then a couple of T20 matches, again where the WIndies should be able to compete.

The less said about the Tests the better

Sri Lanka will start from Tus, and Aus already left for WI! A day after the CB series. 11 ODIs and 4 tests, 3 months of cricket and no rest in between series.

ICC should really look into their scheduling.

Remember when Australia and the WIndies used to play 5 tests, that's gone to 4, and now 3. Perfectly matching the decline of the West Indies

This series shouldn't even start until the end of this month. While BD just sits there, laying around on their asses, these guys are being slaved! That's true cricket.

Well Australia won the 1st encounter

Australia 204/8
WI 140/10

Australia won by 64 runs

West Indies bowled well, Sammy, Narine, Samuels and Roach were very frugal, while Bravo picked up 3 wickets.

But their batting was a shambles -

33/3
97/4
104/9
140 all out

Embarrassing.

The guy who was opening and was making alot of run, aus dropped him to number 8

Aus struggling in big time.


Australia 154/9 (40.0/40 ov)


Quote:
2.45 pm Australia have been restricted to 154 for 9 but West Indies will have to chase 158 according to the D-L method. They were dismissed for 140 in the first ODI on a similar pitch, but you'd have to say West Indies are favourites at this point. Only just. We'll be back for the second innings in a bit ...

And Aus is doesn't know how to play spin at all, they making Sunil Narine a Murali.

I like both teams a lot but have to pull for the Windies in this series since their the underdogs.

Not the prettiest of wins but hey a win is a win in the end. On top of that the 1st one against Australia since 2006. So Congrats to the West Indies. I watched the match and the pitch did look tough to bat on. The ball wasn't coming on to the bat. So it was tough work to get runs. This game just shows also how important Pollard is to the West Indies. He's a game changer and is needed in these types of situations. Lastly, it was great to see the fans. It was a packed house and their celebrations were great to watch. The West Indians are really passionate of their cricket team. So feel good for them.

Indeed!! Whether the WI win or lose, their fans always support them, no harsh criticisms and name calling like what the BD fans do to their cricketers.

Ya they're not nearly as harsh on their players as we are with ours. Their very laid back people whereas we're really jumpy. It's not only the BD fans though, it's the subcontinental fans in general. In the end though we all love our players. We just show the love in a different way.

Hard earned. Now they can't get whitewashed.

More importantly, how HQ images are these!http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci/conte...71.html?page=1 Why can't series involving Bdesh have any HQ images like that. I wish I could get a hold of AFP images from free.

This is what I was talking about for a Captain to be cool headed. A captain MUST set an example on and off the field.

CI agrees:

Quote:
But there was also a cautionary note for the stand-in captain Shane Watson, who spoiled an otherwise admirable bowling stint with a no-ball that reprieved Andre Russell at a critical time. Watson fumed over the episode and may need to calm himself more rapidly on future captaincy assignments, not least on this tour.
http://www.espncricinfo.com/west-ind...ry/558064.html

Quote:
Watson was the angriest man in St Vincent by the end of the over. Whereas a regular player might have been permitted a brief outfield sulk, the captain had to compose himself to lead his team in the tense final overs
http://www.espncricinfo.com/west-ind...ry/558138.html

Anger reduces focus, efficiency, intelligence; and yes, that goes even for Boxers.
And that counter-effects of anger are even more felt when you are the leader and your decisions may become clouded with personal feelings.
Anger cannot exists without the person, the ego being alive. Anger is a useless personal emotion. One cannot get angry if one is professional and thinking of the larger picture than oneself.

Pollard on 77 from 58.

Pollard.

WI have very dangerous middle and lower order batting:

Bravo Senior
Pollard
Russel
Sammi


~++++++

And if they can add Gayle and D.Smith at the top, they will surely be the favorite to win the next T20 WC can be in top 3 in ODI.
