    Anyway, predicting South Africa for a victory in the opener. Don't think the West Indies will be up to it, but if Gayle, Samuels or Chanderpaul get going then they could set a very imposing total. South Africa just the all-round better unit though.

    Could go either way for me, Powell was formidable against us, if he resembles that kind of form against anyone else he should be a problem. Turning into a real spearhead for the WI, with the decent Rampaul and Edwards the bowling is hardly the worst, depending on the kind of day the SA top order has this match could go down to the wire.

    Edwards will be the key with the ball IMO, if he is on target early in the innigns then the South African top order will struggle to play him. However, if he's wayward then he'll leak runs quick and fast. Gayle and Samuels will have a big role to play with the ball aswell. First game all set up to be a cracker.

    I must admit, as much as I generally don't enjoy watching 20/20, I'm quite looking forward to the game tonight, and the tournament as a whole. It's just been that long without cricket I'll watch anything.

    Darren Sammy is worthy of a mention too.

    I must admit I was VERY impressed with him in the test series, I felt he has a lot of good cricket ahead of him.

    Yeah, he's awesome. Edwards might not have the new-cherry tbh. What time is the match due to start pom-time?

    I think the program kicks off at 4.30, so the start should be at 5.

    Should be a good game tonight, West Indies look a strong 20/20 outfit and South Africa’s off the field dramas, compounded today by the resignation of Ashwell Prince from SACA (and the aftermath of the leaked memo), will either unite the side or have a real detrimental effect on their performance. Mickey Arthur has said that the former is the case but still conceded that the problems in South African cricket are vast and rather serious.

    An upset isn’t as signposted as Argentina and France was last Friday but I really wouldn‘t write the West Indies off like my bookmarkers have. Toss should be crucial as well tonight, as the captains throughout the tournament will most likely favour bowling first.

    If Edwards plays alongside Rampaul and Powell, I’m not sure how the West Indies would be able to accommodate Sammy. They were not able to do it in the summer when their toured England and only could do it in Ireland by resting Dwayne Bravo. Dropping Dwayne Smith would be the only logical option, which probably won’t happen, for Smith’s fielding and hitting ability makes him a 'good' selection.

    Well, it looks like the Windies to me

    Gayle hit's the first of many sixes in this tournament, hopefully.

    Sorry grecian, i was about to write that South Africa have won the toss and elected to field but i just made a mistake there.
    Anyways Gayle is taking Makhaya to the cleaners.
