    This is a strange chase, I don't think I've ever seen so many sixes in a small chase like this when wickets are falling. Batting powerplay will decide this game, WI still favourites I feel.

    Yes they've played a few rash shots, even in this partnership, and the importance of these two staying together for a while you would think is massive if WI are to get over the line. The run rate shouldn't be an issue so I can't quite understand some of the rashness. Be positive for sure, but some are pretty high-risk shots.

    The WI batsmen generally play on instinct, their natural game is to hit big shots so they just go ahead and do it, Darren Bravo is one of the few in the line-up who can actually contain himself.

    BTW that's about the 15th time DK has gone up for a catch on his own...

    I agree with certain players to a point, but they have to learn from their mistakes. Sammy, perfect example today, has just flicked Sharma for six, then crashed him over extra cover for four but then played an irresponsible flash at one that's gone straight to third man and piles the pressure on Charles to see them home.

    yeah that's a good point, they lose concentration and make poor decisions, occasionally you have to be malleable to the situation and contain yourself, they crack under pressure because they can't do that.

    Now Charles has gone and India right back in this. I understand slightly more why Charles feels he has to go on the attack batting with the tail now, but again I'm not sure that was entirely necessary. Roach has looked solid enough and there was still Narine and Best in the shed, so maybe he could have just batted as he had and worked it round and got them closer. But he did bat well and he did so by smashing it about, just think he could have played it a bit more sensibly to get WI home.

    Jadeja has been poor IMO, no flight, no turn and he looks nonthreatening, he needs to work on his guile if he is going to succeed at this level, particularly in tests...

    Narine does strike me as the brain-dead type.

    amazing game, amazed that the final pair showed more composure and poise than the rest of the batsmen, oh well.
