Test Cricket At Its Platinum Best


Roll on the third test, LOL! Test cricket is alive and well, West Indies are awake and kicking. Tear of joy Brian Lara, tears of joy.

I always had faith in the West Indies, we turned up the heat just like the good old days. Say what you want, we drew a series against Australia in Australia! The team deserves credit, praise them when they get it right.

Nobody gave them a prayer; except Kendell Karan of Chaguanas, everybody else wrote them off. What a player, Shamar Joseph, we’ve found a black Guyanese diamond, out of this world performance with bat and ball.

WI needs more test matches, you could see the Australians’ faces after the match, they were stunned. I suggest former players and commentators start calling the West Indies, third world, weak, pathetic and hopeless a lot more often because that seems to be the magic charm.

The West Indies have enough talent hiding in these islands that want their opportunity to represent their country. Cricket runs in our veins; we’ve got to believe that we can put any opposition to the sword. Because, that has been the problem, our mentality. We’ve got to think like champions to play like champions.

Desmond Haynes deserves a pat on the back, he now reserves the right to bawl and scream – I told you so, same with the rest of Andrew Coley’s coaching staff.

WI must build on this, big up the U19 boys as well, like I said WI always turn up against England. WI now go on to ODIs and T20s and its about time WI win a series against these lot Down Under.

We can beat the World ODI Champions, and we’ve got enough firepower in the T20 locker to blow them sky high. Rally ‘round the West Indies today, tomorrow, next week, the following week, the week after, forever!

  1. This was a marvellous performance. I, always knew that we would have made it and never give up. I didn’t stayed up following them for nothing. Many people didn’t give them a chance,but my household was with the team.
    Looks like we’re going back to our glory days. Being disrespectful and bashing us like some past player’s did was a boost to the team. They put that behind them and showed the World they are different.
    Congratulations, congratulations,my guy’s down and under.
