Antigua Is Lovely

566 runs.

Who'd have thought it? (Apart from NWG, she always keeps her faith in the team.)

Two players getting centuries (Strauss and Collingwood -113), three half centuries (Cook, Shah and Pietersen) and a partridge in a pear tree.

West Indies finished on 55-1, with Gayle falling early (woo).

Tomorrow will be fun. Finally, England fans can kind of smile. For a minute, at least.

Wow the Windies scored more than your last games 2nd innings total for the loss of one wicket.

One thing iv'e learnt from cricket watching the world over is that if a team can scored 500 odd runs on a pitch, the team comeing in 2nd has the ability to match it. As seen by the 400 runs scored by the aussies in the ODI a few years ago against South Africa, only for SA to fucking beat us. DOn't get your hopes up :D

Oomby. You have been proven wrong. How pleasing for once.
