    West Indies vs Australia

    Well looks like the Australia Test test hasn't lost it's touch over the World Cup.

    In the first match of the West Indies tour they have a Crib Beer X1 on the back foot after day 1.

    Australia - 337/3 (Waugh 107*, Lehmann 44*)

    Hayden and Waugh both hit 100's (Waugh*) And all the other batsman have made solid contributions (Langer 60 & Love 59)

    They require compulsorily Dillon and Lawson to fire and some others to support them. I think the WI batting will do well but it all depends on the WI bowling.

    I think Dillon is going to get hammerd because his natrual length is short and If he bowls that to Ponting, Gilchrist, Hayden, Langer, and co he will have no hope.

    Yeah forgot about him :P .But i think Lawson will be the main bowler and they should forget about Collins.The bowling attack of WI in my opinion should be
    Dillon
    Lawson
    Drakes
    Ramnarine.

    WI drop Gayle and name 3 debutants:

    Carlton Baugh
    David Bernard
    Devon Smith


    Can anyone shed any light on what they are / do?

    From stats, it appears Smith is a batsman, Baugh a batsman who can keep, and Bernard an "dual" player, although Cricinfo doesn't know what he bowls!
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    That surprises me alot. The West Indies seemed to be investing alot into Gayle, and he impressed when NZ toured there last year.

    No Gayle isn't injured, just something with his eligibility to represent WIs after deciding not to play for Jamaica in the Carib Beer Final against Barbados ( 4-day tournment) and play in the Double-Wicket championship instead....the problem is he didn't take permission from Jamaica to do that.............. or At least I think that is what has happened.

    Devon Smith is a young opener who played for the WIs U-19 and 'A' teams, he is technically sound and scored heavily in the Carib Beer Cup, he is considered the most promising opener in the WIs after Gayle, some consider him the best... Over the last year he was knocking on the door and finally got the chance......

    Still think Ricardo Powell should've been one of the three.

    I'm going to have nightmares in the next few weeks...it's happening again. Lara becomes skip then they drop one of their best batsmen for a minor thing and replace him with Ganga who's failed many a time. Do they really want to loose again? Well if they drop their best opener then they will certainly increase their chances...
