Lara's hometown and he's down with chickenpox!
The match should be over inside of four days.

I don't expect it will stop him playing. He played in the third test didn't he.

I don't think he was actually confirmed with chicken-pox, but I expect he'll play.
Actually Ag, he's Trinidadian. Sir Vivian's home town is St. John's. Stayed at a hotel there a few years ago run by his niece (she said, but everyone there wants to be related to him).:)

Wondering if it is chicken pox (which, as you say is not confirmed). Suppose other players or fans contracted it? ;)

Perhaps one could actually feel very proud to have caught chicken pox from Brian Lara. :confused::D:confused:

Chicken pox is pretty nasty for a man that age, I believe. But if the others have had it in youth there's no problem. I don't think it's as contagious as the juvenile version.

I have heard that chicken pox get nastier with increased age. I had it when I was 15 or 16.

It is possible that he doesn't have CP of course. It's something else. :confused:

You're right he did. If he settles in here, we might see a big score, as I mentioned, St. John's is a small ground.

For the Ozzies, 1896 seems a fair guess. ;)

Oh well, perhaps Gilly and Waugh can hold out. :cool:

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I thought chicken pox wasn't all that contageous for adults. Can't help thinking that most of the ozzies have contracted it. :confused:

Windies 2 for. At least we're starting to chop away. Windies probably around 300 if the batting holds up. Try to search for a pitch report. May even have to call my mate in Oz.
Yeah where is ted???

300 if the batting hold out. Fair enough. Maybe if a couple more of early wickets fall in the morning session you could perhaps roll them over for less than 200. See how the bowlers fair. :)
