    Was just thinking how many people would be devastated if Hauritz took a hat-trick there, disappointingly it wasn't to be.

    Turns out that Ponting enforces the follow-on. ITSTL, thought he go for another bat and inflict more damage on the WI.

    I would have batted again. bat again for a bit and get a score of 150-200 or something up and have a day or two to bowl them out, no chance of losing, small chance of a draw. If a couple Windies batsman stick to it they could set Australia 150-200 on the last day and be in a chance to win.

    is the weather threatening?

    could be that there 5-6 down for 100 by stumps however.

    He is a damn good spinner.

    People should get off his case FFS.

    Nath Hauritz keeps growing and is right now a pretty fine spinner. Also a decent bat. Should have his position locked for a while IMO.

    Yeah, I know. But it's like they're looking for an excuse to start calling for his dropping. I get the impression people don't want to see him do well. They might say they do, but deep down they don't.

    Hauritz too, actually. The denial that went on when he bowled well during the Ashes was embarrassing. I say that as one of the majority who was completely against his inclusion at the start of the series.

    Interesting call from Ponting. Watson would have liked a chance to get some runs you'd think, although being able to enforce te follow on because you have five bowlers would help his case as well I suppose. Guessing the threatening weather may have had more to do with Ponting's decision than what suited Watto.

    Someone needs to tell Gayle it's two per innings, not two per player.

    Oh Chris Gayle, was looking forward to seeing some entertainment for at least half an hour.

    Must be pretty unusual for a player to be dismissed at the end one innings and be batting again in the third over of the next one.
