    I guess you're right. My point merely being he didn't really need to turn the strike,as the RRR never got out of reach.

    Yes the run rate was never going to be an issue with Gayle doing what he does and so that extent Charles can afford a few dot balls, but still need to bat with some intensity in his innings despite chasing a below-par target. On the one hand you can tell Charles in that situation to work through it and not give his wicket away, but in reality WI looked so comfortable he was just clogging things up, and not even looking good doing so. Think Bravo will tick things along better and get CG on strike, which is what the Jamaican crowd have come to see!

    Gayle finally gone for 109, a top knock that has taken WI to the brink of victory. Still time for some of Bravo's thunderous drives, crashing shot through extra cover.

    Bravo now been stitched up by Smauels just when he was looking in good touch. Maybe didn't react too quickly to Samuels change in call but even so looked like Samuels sold him down the river there.

    Terrible decision. It had very little going for it, Pollard is one big man and has come down the pitch, clearly got hit outside the line and above the knee roll with quite a distance left for the ball to travel before hitting the stumps. No thought gone into that from the umpire.

    Makes one wonder why the umpire even had a single brain cell thinking it was out........ It happened in a completely harmless situation, but still....

    Yes was never changing the shape of this game. But it was an easy decision to say not out to, let's hope he doesn't make another blunder when it matters more.

    The WI and SL boards are so cash-strapped that they abandoned the scheduled test series and made it ODIs, while they invited India over so they could actually make some TV money out of it. At least it's a tri-series and not a bloody bi-lateral series...

    Wow, Rohit batting well against his fav opposition and then he throws away an easy 100, don't act like a whiny bitch if u get dropped at some point when u throw away the opportunities like these.

    It's amazing how long he's been around considering we're supposed to have one of the best batting lineups in ODIs. It's just not his format.
