    I see Gayle getting a few, but I actually think it'll be Pollard and Bravo that lead West Indies to victory here. I've slagged Pollard off, so it'd be typical for him to flay us around and win them the game.

    Morgan gone. Magnificent innings. Seems to make runs whenever they're needed, such an awesome player to watch.

    Rampaul and Pollard's over might have killed our chances but you never know, as i said as long as Gayle and Pollard are there we've got a decent shot at it.

    191-5. Pretty happy with that effort. Started to fall apart in the middle, but Morgan and Wright did brilliantly to pull it back. Wright definitely went some way to proving a few people wrong, was a very mature and in the end, powerful innings when we really needed it. I fancy our chances here, it's a good solid total. Just need to get Gayle early.

    Getting back to England's selection it was basically Bresnan being picked instead of Anderson. Personally I'd have picked Anderson ahead of Bresnan - Bresnan's record in T20Is is pretty rubbish and Anderson's a much better fielder. The batting isn't much of a factor really for me.

    Gayle the key...

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Kind of hope this is a 'Chanderpaul going mental day' always find them amusing.

    So we've kept it under 200 runs which is a bonus i guess but we should have done MUCH better, i can't help but think Roach might have saved us many runs today but Rampaul couldn't be dropped after his performance against Ireland, the problem with him is he has a track record of having horror overs, it happened a few times against the Aussies too.

    I wasnt aware that performances against an uber-minnow counted for much and, even if they did, Roach >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Rampaul in any form of the game

    I think England are banking on Gayle's struggles against left-arm seam continuing. He struggled against Bollinger; but I'd say Dougeh's a much better bowler than Sidearse. Have to wait and see how it goes.

    Yeah; great start Sidearse. That was a terrible over. 1, possibly 2 good deliveries. The edge over slips deserved to go, the delivery after that was asking to be punished, then the wide and finally that last delivery was asking to be hit too. Bring back Jimmeh.

    Badly, tbh.

    Bowling length to Gayle just isn't very clever in the format tho, is it?

    It used to be a surprise when you saw a spinner opening the bowling. Now it's almost the other way round.

    I know some (probably most) people find Gayle exciting to watch but to me it's just friggin' ugly hitting
