    What I've always loved about him is the way he kissed the bag with every wicket he took. Haven't paid attention to whether he still does it, but at a time of crisis like that, where West Indian commitment was being questioned, that was very much welcomed.

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."

    Pretty hard to expect them to score boundaries when 5 men are back in the pavillion.

    Ah. I'm in England these days, so not keeping as close an eye on the tournament as I usually do. And media coverage isn't exactly overflowing on it anyway.

    That's a relief from a cricketing standpoint, but on a human level, I wish his grandmother the best.

    I don't think you can count England out so fast. Even if they add another eighty runs here, it's game on. West Indies' batting is really thin. They have Pollard at five!

    Roach is not that special it's just that our bottler batsmen can make any bowler look good.
    Every bowler must love bowling against us as we dont score many boundaries.

    Another positive and optimistic poster! This game is only just over a quarter of the way through, chill. We've had a bit of a wobble but there is time to put this right. I of course am generally over optimistic!

    I don't care if he's Andy Flower and owns the reverse sweep. When your team is in trouble, you don't want to be getting out to premeditated shots. It was poor shot selection, no matter how well he plays it, because it wasn't the right ball to play it.

    Batsmen 3, 4 and 5 were all part of that 16 over spell.. Since when have only the first 5 batsmmen been allowed to score boundaries.? aren't we supposed to bat down to number 9/10 ?
    ?

    I think Roach can be considered a special talent on the basis of his performances in a number of games prior to this, if you want to think England have helped him today.

    Sir, I've been watching West Indies cricket for years now. Roach is quite special. Trust that I'm not judging him on the basis of today's match.

    Yeah, AWTA. Swann should find this pitch to his liking, going by the commentary I'm reading, and Bishoo's figures.

    It doesn't matter how far the game has gone.. we have bottled it once again. every other nation can score boundaries but we dont think it's part of the game.. thats why we lose to fodder and thats why we are going home and thats why we are a laughing stock.. oh look another wicket from a specialist batsmen who never got a boundary
