    Alex Alleyne, theres that old song and it goes like this. ” Theres a long long way to Tipperary “. I do know that Tipperary is in the south of Ireland. However, I would like to say its a long long way to Headingley in Yorkshire. Please dont count thw chickens before they are hatched. They arw two full days play remaining and it takes a brave person to predict the result of this match. So start praying please.

    Congratulations to the West Indies team…especially Shai Hope 147, Kraigg Brathwaite 134 and of course the bowlers in the 1st innings. Now England is ahead but we have to keep the lead to a minimum, less than 100. Keep focus and win this game for the team and the Caribbean people.
