The West Indies have dropped their entire 1st XI for tomorrow's test match v Bangladesh due to contractual disputes. Apparently they have cobbled together an XI but it doesn't sound like a competitive side. Get on Bangldesh?!?!?!?
You heard it here first!
I don't see anything of the sort.
Windies players have threatened to boycott as they did with one of the England tests earlier in the year, however they certainly haven't been dropped!
They've flown out a second string team but it's not known which team will be fielded as yet as last time it happend the first team all played.
DM Richards, O Phillips, TM Dowlin, FL Reifer*, DE Bernard, C Walton†, DJG Sammy, TL Best, NO Miller, RA Austin, KAJ Roach
Sammy being the only name i recognise.
however they have lost pretty much a day of the match due to bad weather so only 42 runs scored by Bangladesh on day 1.
otherwise known as Tino la Bertram Best
Which window are you going to break Tino ??In the West Indies 2004 tour of England, Best played in the Lord's Test and was stumped off Ashley Giles' bowling after some banter from Andrew Flintoff wound him up sufficiently to try to slog the ball into the windows at Lord's.
After taking a first innings lead West Indies have let Bangladesh back into the game and they've scored a good second innings score of 321 only 5 wickets down.
Draw seems likely as Bangladesh may not be comfortable about declaring with a lead that is getable by the Windies in the period. I guess they will probably play the morning or part of the morning session then have a bash in the afternoon.
Without starting a new thread as it won't get much interest anyway the Sri Lankan bowling attack anhiliated Pakistan in their latest test match getting them all out on the first day for just 90 runs. Sri Lanka made 240 and so now only half way through the second day Pakistan have started their second innings.
