    Just completed a trouncing of Pakistan - with Zimbabwe. Led by 9 runs after the first innings in the third Test, going in with 1-0. Second innings - wicket's broken up and it's tea on day 2, so we expect a result. Masakadza and Grant Flower open well, then Grant and Andy decide to pair up for the second wicket. Partnership of 282, the Zimbabwe innings goes on to make 418 after a marathon two-day innings (Andy Flower made 150 in 10 hours), setting an almost impossible target for Pakistan. Pommie Mbangwa, Gary Brent and Heath Streak combine to bowl Pakistan well out before tea, 298 short, and Zimbabwe take the series 2-0.

    Thought it was worth digging this thread to share a pretty bizarre thing. Playing NZ v India ODI in the first game of the Super Six stage of the World Cup, I lost the toss and got put in to bat.

    Soon found myself 27/4. Not a good score. But this is the amazing thing. The 4th wicket to fall was one of my openers, for 26. Dominated the scorecard a bit!

    By the way, only managed to get to 116 all out, India got there with 8 wickets in hand. Oh well.

    I had lost the first two and a three ODI series with Pakistan (in my famous West Indies story). Badly. Out for 120 in the first match, managed to get them 6-fer, out for 160 in the second match, they beat that quickly.

    Then I'm like.. Alright. Enough is enough. So my entire team is batsmen. From 1 to 11. Go in, I am committed to absolutely tonking the hell out of it. I manage to post 341a.o. off 40 overs, Chanderpaul smashing 146 and Hinds assisting with 71.

    Now here is my bowling attack:
    C Tuckett
    S Campbell
    R Hinds
    C Gayle
    S Chanderpaul

    They smash the bowling around, it is a massacre, but awesomely enough, they struggle to 339a.o! I win by 2 runs!
    Hinds 10-1-72-2, Gayle 10-0-62-4, and Chanderpaul 9-0-62-3.

    Alright. After that ridiculous ODI series, the real deal comes: The test series.

    We batted first. After being 5/150, then 7/356, (thanks to a record 159-run 6th wicket partnership between Lara and Hinds - and a record 8th wicket stand of 187 between Hinds and Gayle) we managed to amass 557. Hinds with 188, Lara with 141 and Gayle with 88.

    Inspired bowling by Ramnarine (23.1-4-33-4) and McGarrell (24-5-59-5) cut the Pakistani's down to 157, forcing them to follow on, 400 runs behind.

    Some more incredible bowling from McGarrel (32-7-57-4. Match figures of 56-12-116-9) and Dillon (20-5-60-3) crippled the Pakistani's again - all out for 233. After being trounced in the ODI series - the West Indies side bounce back in fashion, crushing Pakistan by an innings and 167 runs..

    Funny Middlebrook should be mentioned.

    Last night I was playing a FC Game with a bowling attack of Franks, Hutchison, Fisher and MB. We bat first, dominate, but MB gets injured taking one from a medium-pacer on the chest.

    The we bowled. Franks and Hutchy get smacked at `round four an over, even though there is 'Some help for pace' and 'No help for spin'. Fisher comes on and keeps it tight at one end... while McGrath (Anthony) takes 7/26 off 17 overs! I wasn`t complaining...

    Oh... and I just realised he backed it up with 0/29 off 19 in the second innings!

    What a game I just had. Surrey vs Lancashire, County Championship. I batted first and managed only 243, including debutant S.Newman getting a first ball duck, nice start to his career. Lancashire in reply managed 338, mainly thanks to Fairbrother's 102 not out, defending the tailenders annoyingly well.

    So, facing a 95 run deficit I started batted again, managing only 231, Newman doing much better this time, top scoring with 45.

    This left Lancashire needing 137 to win. Wasn't looking too good at 45/1. But then Surrey started taking wickets. And plenty of them. Suddenly Lancashire were 121/9. I liked that a lot. But, depressingly, they got to their target for a 1 wicket win.

    Normally one would expect at first innings spell of 8-20 to help bowl the oppo's out for 38 might win you the man of the match award. Certainly if you followed that up with 9-28 in the second innings, making match figures of 17-48 you might be forgiven for placing a large bet on yourself for MOM. Bizarrely, ICC decided that K Robin's 171 was worthy of the MOM over Briers' Brilliance!
