Managed to get 2 days in at the cricket--the 1st and the last. It was
excellent entertainment, the only disappointment being Windies inability
to win. Just a few unrelated remarks......
1. In the 2nd Innings Walsh scored 16 made up of 1 single, 1 two, 1 three,
1 four and 1 six. Is this unprecedented? It's certainly trivial.
2. Windies are going to have to bring Dhanraj in for the next side. Assuming
Hooper is unfit, WI are going to need a some variety---reports suggest the
test match pitch at Trent Bridge is looking very dry. I suppose Kenny B will
have to go. A pity 'cos he bowled excellently in the second innings.
3. Cheats Shatter Illusions part 2: No doubt certain contributors are upset by
the English win 'cos Corky didn't walk when he trod on his stumps. Most people,
I suspect, will react like the TV commentators and admire his cheek for getting
away with it.
4. I still think the Windies can win the series 4-2. Lara is peaking, Richie and
Campbell are looking good, and Adams must get abig score soon, mustn't he?
5. Yorkshire beat Lancashire in the Nat West quarter-finals. Northants will be
the next to fall.
Go Windies! Go Yorkies!
