    But they let Barby Doll get 11 wickets (probably more).

    He has the benefit of good bowling by Anderson on the other end...

    Broad benefits from his height. All his edges carried, whereas some of Anderson and Bresnan's dropped short?

    Windies need to have Eng 5 down before they reach 100. Typical biased umpiring robbed Roach of Trott's wicket.

    England could've been 3 down? Is there DRS in place?

    Yes there is and WI reviewed but it was one of those "umpire's call" ones where it was 49.999999999999% in line with the stumps but needed to be 50%.

    Enjoyed the exchange late into the 4th day, between Nasser Hussein and Holding on the justification of Sammy's place in the current WI Test squad. Holding seemed to think Sammy was doing 'just' enough, while Nasser Hussein didn't think he fit the bill.

    Well, even though Sammy's not great he is doing his job and until they can find someone better, he's good to go. Moreover and more importantly, under his captaincy West Indies is starting to make a comeback. WI don't look like utter rubbish any more even though they've got the same players from 2 years ago.

    Sammy might not be a good cricket player, but he has most definitely put West Indies team in balance from low ranks individuals to least some much of respectful and young talented cricketers in one piece. He has tremendous leadership skills, and I believe that's what a team needs rather than a captain who needs to know his responsibility as a bowler(if he is one) or a batsman(if he is one). At the same point, he is being valuable to his team by making quick runs and supporting his players.

    too soon to be calling that. England just lost their one top order and tail-ender (Anderson). England's strong batting is yet still to come.

    England should comfortably take it. Looks like weather is clear... there's no hope for West Indies.

    Actually it was about 1% in line. It was one of those were a tiny bit of the ball was in line so it was umpires call. Actually watch the footage you ****!
