Good win by the Aussies, they had to work it and there was a few scares but they won. Smiley

Deserved win to the Aussies and Clarke summed up his view of the current state of WI cricket by declaring short. He knew what he was doing.

The standard of calypso cricket is shameful.

Great comeback from the Aussies.....However England will not let Australia off the hook if they fail to hold their catches during the Ashes.....Australia need to lift if they want to regain sacred urn!!!

New test and what appears to be another challenging pitch. We are going ok but there really is some big issues with our batting. We will not win an Ashes with fragile batting. Mind you the POMS are looking plain on lively pitches too.

Five from Lyon reeled them in. Good news we need a good spinner and Lyon seems to be the first to put the hard work into it.

Aussies 7-212 against Windies at stumps

The tall off spinner Shane Shillingford used his local knowledge to cut through the Aussie top order on day 1 of the third Test. Shillingford ended the day with 4-77 off 34 overs

Wade has made a break through century under pressure to give us a respectable 328. WI in response 8/124.
Why have they thought that to put up dicky pitches would be a clever idea?

I find it quite ironic that the West Indies are now relying on a spinner because their pace attack is not up to it.....The problem is the West Indies batsmen are well below what they can produce.....A strong West Indies are always good to watch IMO!!!

I have been very encouraged that Lyon has been strong two matches in a row. He might get there yet. Smiley

I remember the story when the WI selectors went to an overgrown ground to see a young IVA Richards bat.

He failed, and there was a near riot, so they let him bat again, and the rest as they say….

The cricket there has fallen a long way from those days.

Great knock from Wade, Haddin should retire gracefully IMO.

Good win to wrap up the series. 9 of 14 teats since becoming captain for Clarke and i think i can safely say i was wrong about him and he has proven to have a good strategic mind for the game. We now have the one dayers against England then prepare for next season. We must sort out the top order in the next home season or the Ashes tour will be tough work.
