    Congrats Braff and Shai. Those who know and follow cricket knew that it would have been only a matter of time before the two of you delivered in the land of the swinging ball.
    I am extremely happy for the ‘ golden boy ‘..HOPE he goes on to post a double and silence his haters , nay sayers and those who are simply jealous of his present and potential successes on the field.
    Btw…Kemar Roach took 4 for 71 and not 2 for 71.

    Congrats to the entire team. Players and management alike for the tremendous effort, I knew once we included Bis and Gabriel we would restrict them, now we’re batting well. With in excess of 200 runs lead by day three, we will be in with a real chance to level the series. Best of luck to the guys.

    The critics who usually have all negative to comment about the board, players, management, and who think we need the former dead beat ( so called superstars ). I hope we see it’s really time to move on without them. The foundation was laid, now the structure is being erected. I would love to get the roof on by the end of the series. We have gotten the restructure complete against England in the past under Lloyd, this too could be a new dawn.

    It will be hard but I want us to win the series.

    Now that we (WI) doing good we will see all good things being said. The batsmen still need to turn over the strike more often. Anderson bowling 5 or 6 balls to one batsman on a trot is too much.
    Don’t forget to make the change at the top of the order next match even if we win.

    I want them to win too…but it’s not about haters, it’s about a team that has been playing de worse cricket in de world for over 20 yrs…deep down inside most westindians want them to win but they have to play to win and do it consistently, not just a one win every 15 or 20 matches. I’m gonna be real, if the WI don’t play hard through out this match they can still loose it….but as I said I want them to win, it’s about time

    Brilliant effort by Bajans in this Test Match, Shai, Kraigg and Kemar – you are giving us all hope that the Windies will turn the corner and rediscover the greatness that so enamoured the World of this great region. If Bajan Cricket is strong, so is Carribean Cricket! And I am an Aussie!

    Congratulations to the young Windies Team. Keep on fighting.

    I ask that we support the team, they are an inexperience bunch and need all the support. Lots of adjectives and other stuff was used to describe this team from former players, which I did not like. When some of them started to play for WI they met lots of experience players to shelter them. And the thing is some of them are not doing anything to help the youth in the country they live. Some of them are earning money as coaches and not even going to work. I insist the board is like Governments they will come and go. We need to encourage this team as though they are our children.
