    I'm sure his friend Usain Bolt has prescribed some chicken nuggets....

    50 opening partnership, and Gayle gets his first boundary!

    Watching these associates bowl on these pitches can be so uninspiring sometimes. When you watch Zimbabwe or Bangladesh you get the novelty of watching a team try to bowl 45 overs of defensive spin and its varying success in different circumstances; it's actually pretty interesting. Ireland on the right pitch can be good too because they all get a bit of movement so they can be surprisingly threatening with the new ball, and Botha's pretty unique too. Watching Canada and Holland send down pretty average medium pace that doesn't get off the straight and isn't even particularly accurate on slow, dead pitches against world class batsmen just isn't fun though. It'd be a lot more interesting if they were playing a team of their own level but it just seems dire like this. Love watching a good minnow batting innings though.

    Pfft. Bowling 120kph half volleys at Gayle. Serious disrespect.

    Very few bowlers look good on the pitches at this World Cup....

    Just look at how both the Indian and England bowlers were carted around in yesterday's match.

    superb start from the Windies important to really make a statement here and convert this into a huge total!

    I reckon Zaheer's last spell was quite top notch and Bresnan did exceptionally well with the ball I'd say, considering the calibre of batsmen he was up against.

    Still, enough about that match, hope little Bravo does really well today.

    Runs seem hard to come by for WI. As long as Gayle and Bravo are at the crease I suppose that shouldn't worry them much.

    Gayle absolutely flattens Cooper and then plays out a maiden from Seelar. Such a strange innings.
