Yeah, Wi are a bit brittle. When I went to bed last night, WI were 4/133. They had 179 odd to win with six wickets in hand, two set batsmen at the crease.
Then they repeat the first innings collapse and lose 6/65.
That man Stokes played another outstanding game.
He is head and shoulders above any all rounder in World cricket today.

WI never recovered from that collapse, and Stokes beat them handily. Hard to see WI winning the third test, unless Stokes is injured.

WI cruising at 4/242 ....... all out for 287 ?? Cricket is a funny game. Poms still have some work to do to even up the series.

Well, the calypso boys have danced all over England, albeit with a bit of a stutter to begin their second innings. Well done WI !!

Cheers

Well, the cricket has started!
Wi in the UK, and already England 5 down.
Seems the WI fast bowlers are rediscovering their Mojo.
Always thought Holder was a damn fine player.
Thrust into the captaincy at 24, has nearly 2000 runs at a batting average of 32 with three centuries and 8 fifties, as well as 1006 wickets at 26.
Good test figures by anyones standards.

Can we get V'landy's to take over CA as well ........... please !!!

So given that the top female elite batters have similar skills-sets to the male elite batters but are facing much slower bowlers how come the female Bradman or even Smith has not emerged?


Give them some time T !! Remember, there's only been one Bradman in 130 years, and a few about half as good. My concern is that there might be one or two who decide to put on some extra bulk , as in most other sports. Or, heaven forbid, cricket will see a sex-change hero who wants to dominate the sport.

I think we will gradually see an increase in body strength, so bowling will get a bit faster, and some of the bowling techniques are a bit less than ideal. Upper body strength is a big difference in the sexes, and plays a big role in cricket in both batting and bowling. The women will get bigger and stronger I'm sure.

And there'll be a female Bradman come along ........ or maybe not. Perhaps a Vivienne Rishards ??

Cheers
