West Indies Skittles England for 51 Runs


west_indies_cricket

It’s nearly impossible to not get blown away when the West Indies routs England for only 51 runs to win the first Test match in the Wisden Trophy Series. In what has been described as a spell of a lifetime, Jerome Taylor electrified the West Indian fans taking English scalp after English scalp reminiscent of the former glory day of West Indies Cricket. Fans cheered, danced and tapped the back of their TV sets in Trinidad as stumps and bails became dislodged at Sabina Park Oval in Jamaica. It was like a David Copperfield illusion and West Indians were wiping their eyes not of tears but in disbelief.

It was an almost flawless all round team performance from Chris Gale and the Windies which started with centuries from Gale and Sarwan. The game was about even this morning when the West Indies made a mere seventy five run first innings lead. This lead, however, proved insurmountable for England. It was not clear if it was simply the intensity of the West Indian bowling or the seventy five run lead, but England appeared to not have any fight in them after they lost their first wicket.  A five day Test Match was over in just three and a half. This shortened Test Match will no doubt affect match revenues but it will be made up for in the next Test as West Indian fans rally round the West Indies!

Congratulations to the Team and I hope to be posting a similar blog post next match!
