WHY WI WHY????????????????

A few seconds ago I saw the West Indies loose 2 wickets for 0 runs. I am hurt and disgusted, just when I was ready to say, yes maybe it was time to start watching cricket again, NOOOO!!!!! they had to ruin it for me. I now feel it the team though, because If I feel this way, can you imagine them. 4 RUNS FOR 4 Wickets OFF 6 BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We couldn't do that!!!!!!!

I will now watch the other 1 dayers because despite all that is going on in my mind right now (%$#@!@#$###$%$%$#$#@!!!!!!!!!!), what I saw today was what I missed the from the WI glory days, the nail biting finish, only that we usually won in the end. I must commend the batsmen in our team who have risen to the challenge before them, so much so that if we have to chase a target I will sit and watch. Our bowlers however have much to be desired. I'm Not knocking them, I doubt its a lack of effort, but something is missing.
Big Big Props to Chris Gayle, the Second WI batsman to silence me (the first being Lara) I use to question his use to the team, but in this tour he has proven himself to be an exceptional batsman who is living up to the potential the selectors saw in him. Well Done. Right now to me our Top batsmen are:

Chanderpaul, Sarwan and Gayle.

I deliberately left out Lara because, While I admit he is the one of, if not the best in the world, he fails to show the consistency of a underrated great like the current captain, who I would pick over a Lara. Yes Lara might give me 400, but Chanderpaul will give me at least 50.

So Till Next Blog Or Match, Farewell

It has been said that "WI cricket team is the only team that can snatch defeat out of the hands of victory" (not exacly verbatim). I think that says it all!
