    *Official* Cricket Web XI in the West Indies

    The official tour thread for results, averages, team and discussion on the tour.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    1st Test Results - Queen's Park Oval

    Pitch Report: Early seam movement; slowish pitch - ball doesn't come onto the bat; keeps low as match progresses

    A gutsy effort by the CWXI in the 1st Test. After attaining a 172-run lead on first innings, the West Indies team started batting again late on Day 3 in full control. Only Lara seemed to score with ease as the West Indies posted 276/4 dec. to lead by 448 runs on first innings.

    This left the CWXI with the gargantuan task of having to bat for almost 7 hours to draw the match on a pitch which was keeping low. Could they do it?

    We would have to have a balanced schedule with every team playing each other an even number of times. I'm willing to do a few. I'll write up an itinerary this evening assigning the sims to you, Lang or me.

    2nd Test Results : Sabina Park

    Usually I post the scorecard and the commentary file.The zip file for download contains the scorecard and a highlights package with highlights from the commentry.

    Welcome to Sabina Park for the 2nd Test match of what has already looked to be a thrilling series. The Cricket Web XI came out of nowhere to be granted Test and ODI status and, look to be good for it. They've played 4 Tests so far and won 1 drawn 1 and lost 2 for a pretty decent start to International cricket. Let's go out to the middle where Ian Bishop has the call of the toss.

    Bishop: Langeveldt to call.
    Langeveldt: Heads.
    Madugalle: It's.......Tails.
    Bishop: West Indies have won the toss. What do you want to do Brian?
    Lara: The pitch looks a bit green first up, so I think we'll bowl first. Vassy got 4 back in Trinidad and I think the bowlers bowled well over all.
    Bishop: Any changes in the side for Trinidad?
    Lara: Well, Lawson was having a few back problems and we weren't sure he would play today, but he seems to have recovered. Also, Omari Banks has the flu, so Desmond Haynes will be carrying the water today.
    Bishop: Thank you Brian. Langeveld, what do you think of the pitch?
    Langeveldt: It looks a decent cricket pitch - seam early, spin late. We have a couple of spin options in the side but Lucky Eddie will again be our spearhead. I think if Rich_2001 and Broncoman can get us through the early session, we can post a good total.
    Bishop: Amy changes from Trinidad?
    Langeveldt: Yeh, we've got all-rounder Sunil Havascar in for David to add another option with her legspin if necessary.
    Bishop: Thank you Langeveldt. We'll thow it back to David Hookes and Mikey Holding now for the start of the match.


    Here's the first delivery, Lawson steams in...

    Wait till the full England tour - then I'll show you what a real pub is (apart of course from the CW bar, which is as good as it gets)
