Yeah, good start to the match, good innings by Dravid. Better get some hard matches Ag, the Aussies are coming and Waugh's last challenge is to beat you on your own turf!:D

Pakistan test medium range missle.

Yes, it is a solid enough start by India, but as you say a trifle slow. 3 an over when I last looked, but with Dravid, you would rather he got a big score slowly, than a small score quickly, which is probably what would happen if he tried to force the pace. :confused:

Trav and Ted,
Losing to the world champions is no disgrace. We will put up a good fight and the record suggests that we cant be beaten at home. Waugh always called India the "Final Frontier.":D

India would appear to be in charge thanks to Dravid. Be wary of Astle though. Once got 222 against us once, but about twice as fast as Dravids. :confused:

Hayden appears to be heading towards a double as well, but maybe that isn't surprising. :D

That is all rubbish. We beat you in a series once. In 1934. ;)

Leave the poor Kiwis alone. My convenience store guy is all smiles! Too bad it wasn't the Pakis:rolleyes:

The Zims didn't follow the rule: Win the toss, think about fielding, then bat first anyway:)

Only 18 extras for such a large total, would look OK except all the bowlers went for a century apiece.

Go Hayden. :D 38 4's doesn't sound a huge amount considering the high score. I hope this doesn't encourage Brian Lara to try and recapture his record, because it would inevitably be against us. :o

"both caught and bowled by all-rounder Sean Ervine, whose figures of 4-146 represented a career-best."

No comment. :(

and 11 6s! But Waugh (bu bu bu what is he good for) didn't get his ton! Doesn't look like he will have a chance to bat again! Let's hope the Zims can bat out the next 3 days for practice;)

Trav,
The perfectionists are wild that we left the goddam Kiwis off the hook.
They should have been 200 all out. Damn Nathan Astle.:mad:

And a somewhat unorthodox match at the RSB ground.

"Lightning strike fells Test star

Wisden Cricinfo staff

October 10, 2003

Two players were struck by lightning during Thursday's Red Stripe Bowl match between Trinidad and the Windward Islands in Jamaica. Trinidad's Mervyn Dillon and the Windwards' Fernix Thomas were both felled as Thomas moved in to bowl to Dillon. The pair were taken to the University Hospital of the West Indies for overnight observation where their condition was described as "stable", and visitors later in the day said both the players were laughing and joking.

The incident occurred when a bolt of lightning struck from what witnesses said was a clear blue sky. Dillon slowly slumped to the ground clutching his left side, while Thomas ran unsteadily to the pavilion. The strike was accompanied by a clap of thunder which Tony Gray, Trinidad and Tobago's coach, described as "the loudest noise I have ever heard". Spectators rushed for shelter, and although several players were seen on the ground it appeared that most had dived for cover rather than been struck.

It was a surprise when the decision was made shortly afterwards to resume the match, and more so when Thomas took the field after receiving treatment. He bowled two more overs before complaining of a headache and a burning sensation on his neck and walking off. Shortly after Thomas and Dillon - who had been receiving treatment in the pavilion - were taken away in an ambulance. As play continued the skies darkened and more lightning and thunder could be seen and heard nearby, but it took a heavy downpour to send the players scurrying for cover, and shortly after the match was abandoned with the outfield underwater.

It is not thought that Dillon's availability for selection for West Indies' forthcoming tour of Zimbabwe will be affected."

:eek:

Australia have lost Mcgrath, Gillespie, McGill and Warne to injury or suspension.

Time for everyone to see how deep australias bowling tallent really is.

Next bowling attack looks to be Lee, Bichel, Williams and Hogg.

Zimbabwe do seem to have performed quite well. Better than they played in England when we could more or less roll them over twice in a day. But, considering they still need over 200 runs with only 1 wicket left to even make the ozzies bat again, it is still a sadistic 1 sided gang battering, but I dare say they're used to it by now. If the Bangas weren't around, I would feel sorry for them. :D
