    Well what a dire ending for the windies!!..just pathetic how often this attack lets the opposition off the hook!!...same things happened against Bang in the recent series. They'll have a tea virtually in it's knees and just needing to finish off the last few wickets and then something changes..they get too relaxed and start bowling absolute crap...and the problem is late in the innings the most econominal bowler (Moti-kanhai) has usually finished his spell so the captain can't turn to him to keep a leash on things..it's just poor...117/8 and end up 198/9..

    As for the batting...well i said it was a concern didn't i?

    Pooran= flatters to deceive...

    Hetmyer= can't pace an innings and just swings for the fences..

    Drakes- absolute rubbish who shouldn't be anywhere near the side

    Solozano= good player but needs to really stand up to be counted in these situations

    Chanderpaul= was unlucky being ran out today...he's so important because he usually holds the innings together (just like his father)

    Allen= Good talent but again like Solozano it's these situations where class stands up

    Hope to see some changes to the batting next time around!!..i'd also look at maybe adding an extra batsman, dropping a pacer and letting Allen bowl his left-spin as the fifth bowler.

    The bowling i'd keep the main four..

    Jordan= needs to be more consistent down the stretch..

    Jones= done well...need more wickets upfront though

    Moti-kanhai= brilliant, tight bowling as usual

    Lewis= again in the wickets and done well
    One Day cups- Champions trophy winners-T20 cup-29 test series without defeat record- and some think we're a "minnow".

    If you were that old, and that kind, and the very last of your kind, you couldn't just stand back and watch children cry.

    Milind isn't half bad. Getting plenty of away movement from the left hander.

    Khan bloke on the other hand seems pretty ordinary.

    Full toss, 3 top edged sweeps and a mis-hit.

    I finally managed to watch our game against South Africa. All the batting looked average or worse (particularly ours) and that was disappointing. But there was some serious pace talent on display from Jordan and Rabada, and I really enjoyed that.

    Rabada had good pace, a lovely action and was bowling an excellent line and length. Seriously impressive stuff. Jordan was by far the quickest bowler on display, he is clearly going to be 150kph plus in future. I just wish he pitched it up more because when he did he usually beat the bat or caused problems.Also, I think his action is clean which is a relief. Still, it's great that we are getting some fast bowling talent through again.

    Sanju Samson might be replacing Dhoni eventually. Not entirely convinced he has what it takes though no matter how well he does. Something missing that I can't put my finger on. Or maybe I am just a moron.

    Serious question, why doesn't India poach Pakistan's fast bowlers by paying them a lot? I mean 1947 wasn't that far, they could easily claim someone from the previous generation in the family was Indian.

    You could try poaching Afghan players.
