    @ David,

    Good win for Lewis. Now 1 point behind Nico.

    Ramdin is very upset with his non-selection for the upcoming home series against India. He vented his full anger against new chairman of selectors, Courtney Browne.

    He used Twitter to inform his fans about his non-selection for the upcoming home series against India and blamed new chairman of selectors Courtney Browne for the decision.

    “What a rainy day, lil heads up for shotta 80 fans wouldn’t be playin in test series vs india. new chairman says my avg isn’t Gud,” he tweeted.

    “Last 2 innings over 60 vs Australia down under but not good to play anymore.”

    “Life goes on man God is great, what I haven’t done in my test career for sure was dropping any batsman to score double hundred vs WI.”

    “Man who’s telling my average is bad with 25.87 but his is 16 telling me about batting an has never scored international hundred shameless.”

    Perhaps Ramdin is also implying that WI coach Phil Simmons’ test average of 22.26 does not qualify him to coach the team, especially Darren Bravo [41.50]; Marlon Samuels [33.53] or even Kraigg Brathwaite [34.40].

    As usual, many of those commenting on Cricinfo have accused Browne of dropping Ramdin in favour of mediocre Barbadian cricketers, trying to rid the team of Trinidadians and insularity, while alluding to his test average.

    Similar sentiments were also expressed when former coach Ottis Gibson dared to say the senior players did not perform during Cricket World Cup 2011. He was subsequently verbally abused publicly by Gayle and Sarwan.

    Gibson’s critics also took issue with the fact that after playing only two tests for the WI, he had no right to criticize Gayle, Sarwan and Chanderpaul.

    Why do West Indies groundsmen prepare flat tracks ?

    India 302 / 4 on day one.

    Are they able to do better? Is it about the soil?

    West Indies are a very generous cricket team.India 404 for 4 wickets. Kohli is 200 no at lunch.

    Will he get to 300……or more?

    @ David,

    Nico on pole Lewis unlucky to be second.

    “The world championship leader says he isn’t expecting to run into any problems with the stewards despite setting the fastest time of any driver during the second sector of the Hungaroring circuit despite passing warning flags for the stricken McLaren of Fernando Alonso in the process.”

    Should be a good race tomorrow.

    Yes, LH was unlucky on the last lap when yellow appeared. NS gained the advantage from behind.

    This is sad.

    “Sada Williams of Barbados, the world leader at 22.61 an medal favourite, tumbled to track just beyond the bend’s halfway point, and didn’t finish.”
