That’s bogus info.. Hayden already made 380 prior to that. Regardless good teams don’t give a sheit about personal milestones, is the reason perform so well as TEAMS.


Yeah but Hayden was running down the 400...he chased the 375 and gt..lara came after with the 400...but as I said before, teams looking for victory in tests to secure points

That was against Zimbabwe iirc.. they were just piling on the runs in the first inning.. when he broke that record is was no huge deal to Australians. No holiday no house nothing.. in fact it was West Indian fans who were more affected by it than anything else.

My point is a good team is more interested in winning a game than some stupid personal stats. The reason why low teams like WI remain low and divided. Allot of people here won’t understand or appreciate what I’m saying because it’s something built into our mentality...

So what really happened in that TT and Leeward islands semi final game?

Bravo dropped a sitter. Our best bowler going at 4 per over suddenly got injured after 6.5 overs (Anderson). Spinners got real licks.

I wondered if they really wanted to win.

I don’t know if it is I can’t read and comprehend as well as you but where in that article does Clarke say or give any notion to declining to bat on because he wanted to preserve bradman’s highest score?

The article title is misleading, maybe there is where you got misled.

If you read the article it actually solidifies what I said... that top teams go about cricket in terms of winning and not records.

Do not mean to start an argument btw.. we’re all here for the love of cricket and to share views.

WI rack up a big score batting first 208
But India 108 - 1 in the 12th over actually well set to chase it and King Kohli at the crease as well.

T20 is still a chasing sides game!! I wouldn't look too much into it for a determination of form. Look how easily India chased down 207 in the match before.

West Indies cricket is far far far behind the rest of the world. We have talented players who will win a match here and there but the cricketing culture needs to change from the primary school level to senior level.

We play festival cricket and every cricketer’s dream is to become a star with a big gold chain.

Administration is like regional politics and racism has already done so much damage.

We will battle with the associate nations and play good cricket against them no worries.

South Africa's loss is Australia' gain

Labuschagne scores his 3rd century on the trot in the Perth test this morning.
WI need some foreign talent like that. Instead we losing people like Jordan and Archer when we already have a small talent pool.

allyuh think his pick sure??


Bravo is surplus to requirements with Pollard there. With Pollard and Holder that's two medium paced all rounders and if Braithwaithe is picked that's 3. There is only so much of that type the team needs.

Festival cricketers in the team will do well to gain fan support..

Just a matter of time before other regional countries start pointing fingers that it’s now Trinidad’s turn to pack the team with Trinis due to trini head coach and captain.

First it was Jamaica’s time then bbdos now us.

There will be no progress.. banana region for the win
