Oh joy. 124/1. Joy joy joy.
Oh dear, another hollocks in the outfield.
Hope the Aussies are looking at this and learning how to bat in T/20s against ****e bowling.
Personally, I think it's good idea to rest Gayle. These players need to learn how to play 20/20 cricket without him. If Gayle gets out for a duck on Friday or Saturday, they will need to do so. So, this will be good practice.
And for the record - I certainly won't listen to you telling me to stay quiet!
4 wickets for Simmons

These players are internationals playing for their country. They shouldn't have to learn how to play without Gayle. What, does the coach have to wean them from their dummies as well?
What practice are they getting here? Learn how to get smashed to all corners of England in T/20 after getting smashed in tests and ODIs earlier.
Suppose Gayle gets out for a duck on Friday. What then? that's exactly why they need to learn to play without him, and what better way than in a game that doesn't matter one iota?
Also, if Gayle has a knock, Dyson has probably decided it's pointless risking him in a game that doesn't matter one hoot....
Sky's commentators had a similar nonsensical rant during the warmup game with England, when Gayle didn't play. And what happened after that? England lost to Holland, and the WI beat Australia....
Personally, I don't mind who wins this match, becuase they've both already qualified, and I have a Sri Lankan dad!
193 to win. No gayle for a freakish innings. They'll be beaten psychologically anyway and since some West indians are fine with a loss since they're already through, then I guess it's okay for them to be all out for, oh, i dunno...90.
I will laugh if two hours later Simmons hits a hundred and windies win.
If Gayle goes for a duck on Friday means they fail. He's the talisman, he's their Pietersen. The other guys can't do jack, anyway, with their complacent ****s.
And if Gayle goes for a duck is no surprise to any West Indian. Gayle for me is usually: big score, duck or <20. In true West indian fashion.
