    West Indies in control of 5th test!!!!

    West Indies in a good position. Last time I looked they were 162/1 on the first day. Will they win the series?
    There's only one Darren Gough!

    Nah, Draw. They've got Shivnarine "136 off 510" Chanderpaul, remember...

    Oh God... just checked the latest scores. 286/4 (from 246/1). Chanderpaul has FOUR off TWENTY EIGHT!

    This is worse than Hashan Tillekeratne! And a horrible cross-breed genetic accident between Chris Tavaré and Geoffrey Boycott.

    Don't knock Chanderpaul, he keeps an end up and scores runs - him and Hooper are having fantastic series'
    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?

    I didn't say he was a bad player, just that he was terrible to watch. But not quite as bad as this nugget from the CGS 2002 stats:

    R Dixon = Matches 3 Innings 3 NO 0 Runs 2 HS 2 Balls Faced 42 Average 0.67 Strike Rate 4.76

    And to everyone laughing at my batting average, stick that in a combined list of all our Y10,Y9,Y8 and Y7 players, and it would be Seventh out of Twenty Eight.

    Hey, Boycott would be by far the best batsmen England would have if he was playing today. I know people get fed up with his comments but they are true. England are crap, and he could get more runs himself than the whole England team put together.

    That's a bit harsh. And complete rubbish. 529-5 last time wasn't it. I don't recall Geoffrey ever passing 300, let alone 500...

    If we picked players on talent not on who-plays-for-Surrey or who-is-related-to-me then we would do better.

    And it's down to Sachin now. 255 required, 7 wickets in hand, off minimum 126 overs. Tendulkar 78*

    India destined to defeat at Sabina

    Only chance of salvation is the fine cricketer by the name of "RAIN"

    West Indies 422 & 197
    India 212 & 237/7 (80.0 ov)

    India require another 171 runs with 3 wickets remaining

    Stumps - Day 4

    There is however a 40% chance of rain tomorrow. Who knows?
    The WI are currently large and in charge though!

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."

    England's problem is that it's still an 'old-boys club'.

    They need to get rid of has-beens Butcher, Stewart, and Ramprakash and get a whole new load of people in. Can't they see that we won't win with the players we have, so why not get new ones in?
