    40 ball 100 from Pollard and Devon Thomas to make it into double figures.

    Why didn't he earn that fish?

    The tactic was obviously bowl at the stumps (as the practice session footage showed) and his wicket ball was on middle forcing Gayle to manufacture room. He stuffed up.

    Bowler deserves credit.

    Of course Hafeez has bowled well too, but Gul has been moving the ball both ways and bowling good lines.

    At the outset we're going to have to agree to diasgree here.

    Gayle manufactured that wicket. Had he stood his ground and played a straight drive he'd have been better off. Bowling at the stumps wasn't the issue, because Gayle made the room. The issue was shot selection and placement. Both of which Gul had no impact on.

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."

    I wonder what the Windies will fancy themselves defending. Anything over 150 and you never know I think

    Counterattacking is all well and good, but when you've got Pollard and the tail to come, you have to think twice about it.
    Strike rotation needed though.
    No, not really... but the occasional single would be helpful.

    Agree, poor shot. Gul bowled great overall, but that particular shot was a poor piece of batting.

    You say it like it's easy to manouvre a 50mph ball that isn't turning.

    His 80 against the Netherlands was his only half century in the last year.

    Commentators just said no hundreds in his last 34 innings, average of 30podd and 6 fifties, with 3 v Zimbabwe and 1 v Ned.
