That Windies team

The West Indies cricket team is like the little girl with the curl. When they are good, they are very good and when they are bad they are horrid. Today,was another in the horrid themes we have become so well acquainted with.

Playing their last warm up game they were skittled for 85 in just 25 overs. India, then proceeded to knock off the measly total with consumnate ease. It couldn't have happened at a worse time seeing that in a few days time the real games begin. It's not so much that they lost but more the way that they were steamrolled. More than likely they would have wanted a confidence booster going into Tuesday's game and not this sloppy performance.

Now, the onus is on them to put today's game behind them and come out fighting. Not sure how easy it will be to do but somehow they have to raise their game. We wait with bated breath to see which West Indies team will show up on Tuesday.

cuhdear! this could be very very painful
Said like a real commentator Kami! lol. I am not into WI cricket at all, in fact the WI poor excuse for a team squelched any for of interest I ever had in the game.
..Maybe its a part of their greater conspiracy: lose the warmups to give the opposition a false sense of security and then come out blazing. Who knows? Weirder thngs have happened..LOL
Start praying from now... thats my advice.
I am just going to enjoy what I can catch and not get too caught up with our team's slim chances. We don't see much cricket up here in the ATL period, so the little I catch on tv I will learn to be grateful and appreciate it. We will probably win a match or two, but I don't expect more than that.
Mind yuh die from lack of oxygen with that "bated breath".
my dad is up in arms over this!

lol @ like a little girl with a curl :-)
