Of course, Trav.
As for my calling St Johns Lara's hometown, I made the biggest bloomer anybody made.:o
I get confused with all the 'Indians' in the West Indian team. I thought all those of Indian descent were from Guyana. Turns out that Sarwan and Ganga are from Trinidad too.
Where do you think the test is headed?

Its 2 down for 47.

What do you think of Jermaine Lawson? And why is it that Jamaica keeps producing quality fast bowlers?
Does it have something to do with the rum?
:D :D :D

Well that doesn't happen very often. Almost feels that both the first innings were a wasted effort. Doesn't it? :)

I agree. :)

So, Lawson has some back injury. Probably the worst possible time for the West Indians. Will the Ozzies lose a wicket? Not when, or how many, but will they? :)

I reckon if they get a lead of 500 before the first session tomorrow they'll declare. Give em almost 2 days to bowl em out.
Bad luck for Lawson. Windies need him fit!

Nothing for yonks and yonks, and suddenly 3 quick wickets. I don't think the ozzies need a leaad of 500. The WIndies aren't that good. 400 would suffice.

Very possible, especially if Lawson doesn't bat or bats with a runner. Lara and Chanderpaul will have to put their heads down and not get too many rushes of blood.
Have a good evening and we'll see you after lunch.
btw did you wish your mother "Happy Mum's day"?

No I didn't. Completely forgot, but then, she's used to it by now. I rarely remember that sort of thing - Anniversaries, birthdays, special days etc. :)

Clearly God is on the ozzies side.

"74.3 Dillon to Lehmann, no run, Dillon can't believe this! Umpire
Shepherd says not out to a big big lbw shout, that was not just adjacent - would have missed off stump and leg stump, hitting middle, not out anyway. Dear-oh-dear!"

3 Down!

I think they should have put Chanderpaul in with Lara.

I don't think it would have, sorry, will make any difference who they put in with Lara. They'll still lose. Almost garanteed now.

You're probably right.
Sarwan's having a bit of a slog here, he might go soon. Lara seem to be trying to anchor the innings and save some sort of respecability. Might get a ton with thatmentality.

Good fight back by Chanderpaul and Sarwan. Who knows? If they carry on like this and are there at the end of the final session perhaps the WIndies have a chance. :eek:
