England's tour of the West Indies 2019
Yesterday's game really summed up the pros and cons of Windies still relying on the Universe Boss. They hit the most sixes ever scored in an ODI innings, yet only made 360 rather than the 400+ it could have been, because they chewed up 143 dot balls on account of Gayle's inability to run quick singles. Leaked runs in the field because he can't sprint or throw himself after the ball, too.

Excellent from England though, Jason Roy in particular.
Just a little niggle but it's really pissing me off  Angry 97 Allen has fielded for nearly all of England's batting time so far in this series even though he's not been in the starting XI for either game. He looks a very good fielder too. Are the Windies manipulating the rules or should we just go NFL and have Batting Units and Bowling/Fielding Units  Huh

In my eye's the WI are cheating Angry
and complicated
Chris Gayle brings up his 10,000th ODI run with his 500th 6 in international cricket.
He's gone. Bowled by Stokes for 162.

Is it actually possible to post a target of 419 and still lose?
Not now. 3 wickets in 4 balls.


4 from 5.

Game over. Smile
That was a hugely enjoyable match which had a bit of everything. 800 runs in a day, two 150s and a century, records falling left right and centre, a cat-and-mouse run chase for an almost impossible target, a superb four top-order wickets for Mark Wood on a flat deck and a Deirdre five-fer to put it to bed.

England now can't lose the series, a win on Sunday will ensure a clear victory.
Wowzers! England all out for 113.

Lowest total against Windies in ODIs.

They've been bowled out before the scheduled interval so the Windies are batting half an hour first.
Looks like Gayle wants it over before then. The caterers will be worried. Confused

He's got 50 from 19 balls. Fastest by a West Indies player.

Bowled by Wood for 77 from 27.
Last over 66446W
All over in the 13th over.
Christopher Henry Gayle again whacking them to all parts
Have you heard about the news on Mizar 5
