    No way West Indies wins a Test in South Africa. But a draw is a possibility. Will be interesting to see how/whether West Indies avoids defeat.

    The ODI series should be a lot more of a contest. Hopefully the selectors pick the worthy players, and not the likes of Austin Richards. I'm tempted to also say Lendl Simmons, but in fairness to the man, he played pretty well in the KFC Cup.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Will be a great victory for WI if they win atleast one ODI. My prediction is 3-0 (Test Series) 4-1 with doubt(ODI) in favor of RSA.
    When asked what the IPL means for seasoned pros like him, Dravid smiled and neatly deflected the question: it is a different world altogether, he said. "The other day I walked the ramp as part of a promotional event. When I started my career, I never imagined this would be part of a cricketer's life!"

    Will hardly be any great achievement for West Indies to win a one-day international tbh. It's Test matches that they look hopeless in. In ODI cricket the team is far closer to respectable.

    Sorry state of cricket for WI. For few months in 2006, they seemed to be getting back to their glory. Everything's fallen back in place after that.

    Why does Makhaya Ntini get his own Invitational XI?

    A more appropriate question is why has it taken this long for him to finally have one?

    Haha, just spotted this. Can't call it a poor prediction as I doubt many would have disagreed, but one of the most remarkable wrong calls.

    As you yourself said not many would have disagreed with Liam' prediction at the start of the series, but he should have had some hope after having seen both Pakistan and India beat the Proteas in test matches at home.
