No no no – not again

West Indian Cricket

Watching West Indies play cricket at the moment is like trying to start a 19 year old car on a cold morning. Cough, cough, cough, cough . Cough, cough, cough, cough, splutter, splutter, Vroooom! Shahid Afridi has just come on and got a wicket with his first ball. He’s badly underestimated as a leggie, and generally gets it down between 58-63mph, which is quick for a spinner, and he relies on the tips of his fingers to spin the ball more than his wrist. He’s great to watch, but needs to work on his bloody appeal which sounds like a strangled pig.

So, they’re 60-4 needing 193. Pakistan are cock-a-hoop – all it needs is one, sensible, controlling innings. From someone – anyone. Watch it

Update: nearly all over, and I don’t need to tell you the outcome
