    ***Official*** India/Sri Lanka/West Indies tri-series

    Game one is already underway, and I couldn't find a thread for it!

    Although I'm greatly disappointed to see the SL vs WI test series cancelled, all three ODI sides have sent full strength squads and we should have some really good cricket with India facing off against two of world cricket's short form specialists. I must admit I'm pretty keen for this series.

    I won't post the schedule but basically each team plays each other twice and then there is a final.

    Cameraman has spent most of the last hour honing in on the bikini clad women by the pool, ensuring the game is still well and truly entertaining...

    Chandimal with one straight from the Iain Bell school of soft dismissals.

    South African cameramen being scouted, it seems.

    Disclaimer: I am a biased South African. Anything I say is likely to have something in it that ultimately favours the Proteas.

    Those SA cameramen made me sit through hours of Misbah and Azher Ali...

    I would expect WI to chase this below par total down relatively comfortably, but of course the SL spinners will have a big say on how close this contest will be. Not seen Ajantha Mendis for a while so looking forward to seeing if his bowling has developed any.

    Bad drop from Mathews, early strike would have been the kind of boost SL need here. Ajantha's already into the attack, not much turn for him unsurprisingly, but could be a handful if he just gets a bit of assistance.

    Gayle taking control of this innings, spanking Kulasekara for two towering sixes, typically effortless. Charles not making it look quite so easy at the other end.

    It appears not! Or people just aren't aware it's started.

    There is some good cricket going on right now, Malinga vs Gayle, a top edged hook from Gayle going the distance, Malinga following up with two 140kph+ yorkers, gripping stuff.

    Well, any series that involves both India and Srilanka bored me.

    Charles finally gets one of out of something near the middle of his bat. Was just about to suggest he step aside a straight one and let someone else have a do. He's really struggled, got to be worth throwing the bat for a while to try and get some momentum into his innings.

    Not sure he needs to do so. There's not much wrong in playing second fiddle to CHG!

    Not actually a day-nighter is it - started 9.30 local time - but they've got another couple of hours to play if it goes the distance, and it's starting to get a bit gloomy now!

    Nothing wrong with playing second fiddle at all to Gayle, but he has looked woefully out of nick to be fair, a couple of sweet-ish struck maximums have salvaged his strike rate, which ended at just 50, somewhat. He was struggling to turn the strike around aswell.
