I meant William Mashinge, not Williams. Taps- why is he banned?
Banned? Got no idea..
Banned? Who? Mashinge? What for? I was sitting here and hoping he would shockingly get that spot no. 8 for second test. That was my theory of why he is not in the RS squad in the ongoing match...

There are 2 whole days left.. That's 220 runs a day.. I would have backed a better team to get those runs because it does look like an organized batsman could score big. Tino would have been useful in this situation but I guess anything is possible. Look at the way Sri Lanka won against us after we gave them all the time in the world.

Well with the guys at our disposal I think what we can hope for is for Mire to come out guns blazing and knock 60/70 runs off that total in quick time then the other guys can literally be as defensive as possible and still get us home
We could have at least hoped for all that if the target was around 350-380. This is now realistically unreachable for the best of teams. I just hope for a better batting show than the first dig.

Of course, there is a better chance of seeing a Williams 70 odd if we are 44/5 or something as compared to when we are at 200/3. But here's hoping...

I read somewhere that Mashinge has a one match ban?

Thanks to every legend who's put a sony live link up. If someone could do that again when they find it that'd be great.
After Lanka that first innings was making me cringe so hard, knowing the boys potential.
I think its a good day for a world record eh guys? Good way to pick up the first ICC points lol.

Cremer may be expensive but he takes wickets. Another 7 wickets in this game so far.
For me he just bowls that one bad ball an over which, sadly, excludes him from the world class category in test cricket, for now.
Having said that, leg spin is the hardest art to master.

what is the need of 8 batsman then ? if 7 fails, 8th won't come and score a double ton
That’s a stupid argument :lol:

Another humiliation comming on 8+3 combination :)
You’re right picking an extra bowler would have helped us score more runs :lol:

Yes well done although they got too many in second innings.

The pitch seems dead now so I’d tell the boys just to bat time don’t worry about anything wide of the stumps.

Will be hard though considering all the batters are aggressive players.

The West Indies will win the game but I mean, it's now all about whether or not we can put up a strong performance, like we did against New Zealand in 2011. BT showed lead the way forward.
