    Quest for variety really. Not playing your second best bowler when the conditions do actually suit him is completely insane though.

    Windies win with Best claiming 5 taking his average below 40!

    Stupidest way for me to win $11 profit betting on WI at $1.22 on day 2

    They do have a problem really don't they. He isn't as good as Shakib so he gets dropped simply because the rest aren't good enough. They'd be better off picking 3 or 4 spinners and just one medium pacer and utilising the fact their spinners are much better than any of the pacemen. At least do that at home anyway where they can prepare pitches to suit their attack.

    lol bangers....lost the plot
    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    Nup; all spinners. I know Mahmudullah used to bowl medium pace as a kid, but I don't think that exactly counts.

    I'll say this yet again. The result does not justify stupidity. If someone does an Ian Bell special and it goes through the fielder for 4 do people endlessly drone on about how he scored a boundary so it was a good shot? This is the sort of blatant logic failure I'm going on about, yet the sheep mentality perpetuates it because you can't think for yourselves.

    Cricket is a numbers game. Do stupid, lazy or bad things and you'll lose out in the long run. The moral is don't do stupid, lazy or bad things. The moral is not to keep doing stupid, lazy or bad things because you got away with it this time. The moral is not to do stupid, lazy or bad things because you did things right and you lost.

    Disappointing for the bangers but there were some positives for them this match.

    I like these ninja tests which look like boring flat deck run-fests then get turned upside down the last five sessions.

    If only I had the balls, I would've made a sweet profit of $140. Ended up making $30 or so which is meh.
